Cupcakes that have kept me relatively sane!

If you are regular follower of my blog & for that, I thank you...although I'm not altogether sure I understand just why you'd want to read my ramblings...but that's a different story :-))....you'll know that my good old hubby ruptured his achilles tendon for the 1st time 11 weeks ago & then, being the "special" person that he is, ruptured it again...in 2 places this time..2 weeks ago & was put back in a full leg cast.... meaning, of course that he is even more useless than normal!! I've just picked him up from the local hospital where he was hoping to be put into a pneumatic shoe & hence no longer needing crutches (or a full time waitress!! :-)) )...guess what...yep, they wouldn't do that, probably too expensive for the NHS despite having paid into it for years & years & years...so he's now in a half cast for another 3 weeks........another 3 weeks of waitressing practice...I'll be able to get a job in my local Pizza Express at this rate LOL.    How I wish he was David Beckham, who ruptured his achilles after my hubby did it, but seems to have received "slightly" better treatment...now I wonder why that might be?????  Oh to be an overpaid footballer or his wife LOL
Anyway to try & keep myself relatively sane, whenever I could, between catering to the cripple's needs & working on the "wedding garden", I put together this little 4 tiered very modern wedding cake made up of  loads of cupcakes & in the colours of the delphinium...one of my favourite flowers!






 Not that I'd fancy this sort of wedding cake...I'm far too much of a traditionalist for this!
