Oh boy do I need some!!!!

Chocolate therapy!

There's nothing better, curled up on the sofa, watching something good on the box, drinking a cup of tea and letting the chocolate you're eating slowly melt in the heat from the tea and tantalize those tastebuds.  I got a lovely box for my birthday but I did the honorable thing and shared them with my son and his wife and my husband so now when Try it on Tuesday demands a chocolaty treat from me I have to descend to the kitchen to make something.

I've been playing this week at making alterable cup cake cases to put in the Lovin Ink Shop and have finally got a set that will fit a muffin tin cup cake and a set that will fit a bun tin cup cake, so if you fancy having a go at decorating your own, pop over and have a look at them here.

I've just cut some in brown paper and decorated them to put my muffin tin cup cakes in, not that I'm greedy or anything but I find that if you use smaller bun tins the ratio of ream to cake is too high and the cup cake is slavered in very sweet cream, hence the two sizes of case.

The little doc and the banner is a stamp I bought way back when and have used today for the first time. He's just coloured with promarkers and inked with a little SU chocolate chip ink.

There's loads of inspiration over at Try it on Tuesday (if you need any other inspiration than your fave chocolate of course)

See you there?

Hi Michelle,
I,ve got this stamp too but never coloured him like you have in a white coat-must do that next time.
Great idea and your cupcakes look delicious.
Thanks for your kind words.

OOooo yum... your cupcake creation looks scrummy. Your doctor character is perfect. I have so many stamps that need inking up too. Just waiting for the right occasion. It's such a nice feeling to finally use them.
We're all keeping fine and dandy thanks. Hope you are too.
