Simple Iced Cupcakes


I love cupcakes, fun to make and now our toddler is getting into baking its so much fun. I just got her a little apron and she happily sits on the counter top and turns on the mixer :-) and little cakes that need decorating are great. My Mum has also made a couple of cakes here with her, much to her delight. I will miss my parents so much when they leave tomorrow. 

As we enter the new year and reflect often making resolutions as a dietitian here is my two cents be kind to yourself and realistic. If you don't normally go to the gym maybe once a day may be tough find activities you enjoy. The same applies with food while its wonderful to strive to eat better in the new year a little cupcake here and there doesn't hurt :-) its all about balance
