Fairy cakes? I love that. They look yummy. I have a thing for "fairy cakes". They are fun. May I ask the recipe for your frosting? it looks good. I don't know how I got here but gee, you did take a looong break. I am glad I found you when you are back to blogging. be back.


Welcome Back!!!! I have you in my favourites and checked back occasionally. The beach looks good, but us Mums can never relax eh? Glad your well and hope it won't be as long until you post again.

Nice to see you back! I took a break too, for almost a year!

You and your little girl are both cute as can be! And I have to agree that fairy cakes is a much more charming name!


I love that they are called "fairy cakes" and I'm going to start baking them with my granddaughters. Well, maybe not right away, my granddaughters are 1 1/2 and 2 1/2.

Allison, I'm so glad you are back. I began blogging while you were away and love everything about your website. I feel like I'm meeting an old friend, I haven't seen for a while.



Welcome back! It's so good to hear from you again and to know that you and your dear family are well. Those fairy cakes look wonderful. Evy is such a darling little girl. Your apron is nice. I need a nice apron. Glad you went to Farm Chicks and had a visit with your mother. Nice to get away. Hope to hear from you again soon.

It's nice to see you back, I have missed visiting your blog!!
Those fairy cakes look delish!


Hi Allie,
So glad you are back. Both of you girls look great!!
I am so glad you came to visit me.
I also love to call cupcakes fairycakes.
I'm glad you are liking my new Halloween stuff. Thank you!
Glad you had a fun time at the beach, even if you had to get snacks every couple of minutes.
Don't be a stranger now.
Keep up the blogging.


Hi Allison,
I have been a reader of your blog for a while now and I love it! So glad you are back.


Welcome back Allison! I've thought about you often and wondered where you went! Lovely and yummy fairy cakes. I have to agree with Evy - the beach can be quite dehydrating and hunger inducing LOL.


Hi Allison, I am so glad your back, I love coming to your blog, I missed you. I had been lurking for some time before you dissappeared on your much needed little break (which we all need from time to time. I know I took one several years ago and stayed away for almost 2 years, maybe more) Real life happens. Anyway, I wanted to finally say hi. Fairy Cakes huh? Too cute. Will have to remember that one. You both look like your having a super time making memories.


Great to have you back!


So glad to see your the fairy cakes and so glad you had some good times with your beautiful girl.......

Glad you got to get away and relax at the beach for a while (OK...not "relax" persay...but be in the sun...even though you kept having to get stuff for Evy...LOL...I totally know what you mean about that..and i have three peace, but that's OK!) your apron!
