The April Lust List

I'm completely undecided on the feel of April this year. Easter has already past us by, spring is technically here, but spring weather isn't. The nights are a lot lighter, which I love, but the temperature hasn't quite caught up. That is why I am off to Portugal for a few days tomorrow! So I will therefore declare April the month of going on holiday wahey! For those of you that aren't heading off anywhere sunny this month, this lust list is full of bright, colorful and inspiring items to tempt summer nearer and cheer up these dull spring days!

Sweet Spirits Cookie Cutters: Day of the Dead Cookie Stamps
Baker & Maker, £10.95
I recently discovered this company and am in love with everything they have on offer. All the products are unique, pretty and fun. These cookie cutters really capture the spirit of that and they stood out to me for their unusual and eyecatching design!

LorAnn Oils Cranberry Flavour 1 Dram
The Cake Decorating Company £1.99
What says bring on summer more than cocktails?! LorAnn oils are super strong, three to fours time stronger than standard supermarket extracts. You could make some fabulous cosmopolitan themed cupcakes with this cranberry flavouring! Add some lime zest to the sponge and vodka to the buttercream...yes please!

Neon Sugar
Waitrose £2.49
With colours like Electric Blue, Hot Pink, Sunshine Yellow and Lime Green, this set of four sugars will add brightness and vibrance to cakes and cupcakes! At the Cake & Bake Show, they also rolled cake pops in it. Don't they look great in the photo?!

Lakeland Duo Colour Icing Kit
Lakeland £4.99
I got one of these kits at the Cake & Bake Show and I am so excited to try it out! My brain is already thinking of all the colour and flavour combinations I could use! I comes with 8 piping bags and 6 different nozzles.


  1. Lots of inspiration here...I particularly love those Day of the Dead Cookie stamps...I may even get some and give them a whirl...I'll let you know how they turn out if I do! :-)
