I had such a great time last weekend. After all the planning and organising, my engagement party went off without a hitch. I wanted to put together a cupcake tower for dessert, instead of the more formal cake option. Cupcakes are just so easy to pick out your own and devour without the need for a plate or spoon. Lemon poppy was the new trial flavour accompanied by the already well appreciated divine carrot cupcakes topped with yummy cream cheese frosting. The recipe was taken from the fabulous Bella Cupcakes blog, and it is deliciously moist, so much so that these really do not require frosting at all.

Want a delicious dessert pick me up? You can't go past the Italian tiramisu. There are many variations on this recipe now such as berry, mango and chocolate, but the original coffee flavour is still the favourite. Espresso would be fabulous for the real caffeine addicts, but I find this version caters for most tastes as it isn't too strong.
This was a busy week with Halloween Monday, then Melbourne Cup on Tuesday. I took the easy route and handed out chocolate to the trick-or-treating neighbourhood kids. My favourite were 2 little vampire brothers - too cute! Melbourne Cup was spent at work with a sweep and a delicious lunch complete with nibblies, main and dessert. This was my contribution.
