This is the first “By Royal Appointment Guest Blog” post. This is something we will be doing every Monday and each week we will be welcoming a different designer from our amazing team, the Royal Stampers.
So this week is guest designer Lola Lorenz from Germany. A huge thank you to her for starting us off with this amazing and very yummy looking project. All the details can be found below which will also link to Lola’s website so you can look at other beautiful creations by Lola. If you would like to purchase any of the Stampin’ Up! items used for this project, click on the product photos below. You will be taken to my Online Shop where you can find more information and order craft products 24/7
One of the things all of my friends know about me: I’m a self-confessed non-cook. But – and this is thanks to Mary Berry and the blue-eyed silver-back – from time to time I like to bake. My mental trick is to see it not as cooking but as crafting food. In addition, one can put crafting and baking very well together. By that, one can even make muffin tops look really pretty.
Ok, maybe not the kind of muffin tops you get after eating the muffins. I’m talking about small, hand-crafted decoration on the muffins. I usually do that by stamping and punching the sentiment and then sticking them on a toothpick or longer wooden skewers with a coloured layer by using a hot glue gun.
The sentiments I used can be bought in March (and only in March!) – I really love them! especially since the sentiments work so well together, front and back belong to each other.
The muffins needed the extra chocolate on top that wasn’t mentioned in the recipe as sprinkles on the top because adulting is hard. That is also the reason I didn’t make 12 small but 6 big muffins. I like my muffins like I like my men: big and sweet ☺
