Happiness, Cupcakes and Family

Happy memories

Everlasting Memories

There are many different kinds of food in the world they all have one thing in common and they all bring happiness. It comes in many different forms to many people each in  different ways,  bringing back childhood memories, fun times with friends or even of times of travel . They all have a connection may it be too people or place or even both and bring back good times you will remember for a life time.

In late January of this year I was visiting my oldest sister her partner and my niece Madison (7) and Nephew Leon(5) in Sydney Australia. They are both at the age of wanting to help Aunty in the kitchen because I’m a chef and they think it’s a awesome job. So every night when I was there I had to little helps that were very interested in helping and watch Aunty Rob cook.

The end of the first week I decided to do something fun for the kids while mum and dad where at work so we decided to make cupcakes. I made a plain batch of chocolate chip velvet cupcakes, they got about 10-15 each and had to decorate them. Leon wanted blue icing and Madison wanted purple. I have them some bowls of sprinkles and things and it was their job to decorate them for mum and dad when they got home.

We had a fun afternoon and this is a memories I will cherish for a life time so many happy memories shared with my family surrounded by love, good company and food. Food creates special relationships and bonds with people and you can hold onto so many memories that are linked to food and food experiences.
