my lovely friend is in nyc….magnolia cupcake anyone?

My lovely friend Di is in NYC as we speak, hrumph, am extremely jealous…..I can smell the Magnolia Bakery from here….she has, of course, sent me the inevitable top of the rockerfeller photo, text me several (hundred) times telling me what cocktail she is drinking, what food she is eating, what cakes she has spied (hrumph, even more jealous…..)!

However, happy with my lot (well, ok, Edinburgh vs NYC?! on a sunny day like today Edinburgh rules!) I’m perched on a stool in my kitchen posting this blog and dreaming what I can rustle up for tea (a trip to Manna Bakery earlier today was inspiration enough, bring on the baking!). Despite being in DIY hell….(Mr Predictable is currently destroying the living room with a chain saw…..mmmm)…I’m still thinking about food…some things never change!   8)

my lovely cupcake tower

I thought this one was worthy of a mention and a photo….my lovely cupcake tower that G got for my 40th birthday party back in June.  The cupcakes were from the Manna House Bakery on Easter Road….wow, they are amazing….if ever a cupcake was worthy of an entry in my top ten then it’s the Manna’s. What’s more, I reckon they are the cheapest in Edinburgh at only £1 each.  As we only live five minutes from the bakery it has to be said that we have had our fair share since moving into our new house last year…mmm, wouldn’t want to count how many!  Particularly worthy of a mention are their blueberry ones, AWESOME!


Go visit the Manna, you won’t be disappointed!
