Eat it – Wear it // Hamburger Heaven

Hamburger_Heaven_rose

Today online I saw a donut filled with cheeseburger. That sentence may leave you excited (have a look here and then you might not be) but I’m not so sure.

These cupcakes are totally in love with Autumn too. They are for my friend who had her birthday last weekend. She is an amazing artist and yes, some might say it may have been a silly idea to paint something for a painter but meh, I thought she’d love it. I picked pumpkins as we normally go choose our Halloween pumpkins together plus ya knowwww it’s that time of year! Despite being pumpkin themed they are carrot cupcakes, as I know she loves them. I went to the Cake and Bake show a couple of weeks ago and attended
