UK Handmade Summer!
Well, I’ve only just blogged about the spring issue of UK Handmade magazine, and now the summer issue is out! Isn’t the front cover by Bebe beautiful? It evokes memories of long, idyllic childhood summers when the six week school holiday seemed to last forever :)
I’m really pleased that my union jack heart cupcake shot was chosen as the background for the contents page….
The summer issue is all about celebrating the sunny season and learning new skills: there are lots of interesting tutorials from making your own fabric notice board to creating lovely handmade paper bowls, plus yummy baking recipes such as some delicious looking lemon bars by Deepa and my tutorial on making cheerful sunflower cupcakes for your summer picnics or birthday parties.
Check out my “How To” for these light lemon curd filled cakes, topped with lemon buttercream and simple fondant sunflower decorations on pg. 24 of the online magazine.
