Kids Clinic

This year, Harrassed Mom again set out to help organise a Christmas party for children who may not be lucky enough to have one, and got into cahoots with Kids Clinic in Pretoria. They are a centre that offers support to children who are victims of crime and abuse.

Laura called for volunteers and donations, and I said I would donate cupcakes for the party.

I did chocolate cupcakes and vanilla cupcakes, icing them with a layer of white butter icing and then topping them with butter icing Christmas trees decorated with hundreds and thousands and little fondant stars, and then added fondant gifts or Christmas stockings. The paper cups are also Christmas themed with little holly sprigs all over them!

To Market, To Market…

This was the first time I attempted to sell my cupcakes at a kind of market.

A friend of mine organises a bit of a Christmas market in order to try and sell some of the jewellery she makes, and this year she invited me to join her.

There were a few other people selling their own hand-made wares, but we had very few people come to see and buy our goods.

Unfortunately mine were not of the kind of crafty product that can be packed up and re-sold another day.
