Experimenting with creativity and little time

Please excuse me while I have a wee moan about work eating all my time...eating being the operative word. My free time disappears so fast I don't remember having it in the first place. Gone are the days where I could bake all afternoon, then blog about it. Gone. GONE. But I have faith that it won't be like this forever. So bear with me while I still get used to working full time. Maybe it's a time management thing? Or maybe it's a career choice thing, where I need to switch to baking and bloging for a living...ok maybe not, but it would be nice.

The other night I was home, so I relished the opportunity to try out my new gifts! It was a rather quick go, hence the 'creative' outcomes but it was fun to see how these gimics would turn out.

The chocolate moulds will definitely get a lot more use out of them. As for the chocolate, it was a little too artificial tasting for my liking, so I think I may have to stick to the stuff found in local supermarkets.

The decorating pens were fun too, but cooled very fast and made it hard to use after a wee while. I still think they're fantastic though. I'm looking forward to finding a use for them.

Hope you are all having a great week.x


  1. WOW, they actually look amazing! Love the idea of turning around the 'M'. Awwww keep the blogging up! Love it!


  2. I know just what you mean about working, it has a way of getting in the way of all the fun! But it truly is a time management thing. I hope you find the balance, it looks like you had fun with these candies. They are so pretty!

  3. yes, it's definitely a time management thing. I find making a list quite helpful on the days you have off, and then if you can tick off a few things on your list it makes you feel better !

  4. you should make these. it is easter soon after all... the chocolate might work better as a coating????

  5. Thanks for the tips everyone!
    Sophie- great minds think alike! I had had my beady eyes on those too!x

  6. or one of us is far too lazy to make them herself. hehe
