  1. […] It’s been a while since I’ve posted (thanks to my web designer, Arthur, for creating an adorable, illustrated liquid measure conversions, the other day), as making sweets and photographing them is a little challenging during our home renovation, but I managed to borrow my sweet friend Kim’s kitchen (Thank you Kim!), to do some recipe testing and make rainbow-happy cupcakes, inspired by this mail from The TomKat Studio.
