Rugby World Cupcakes
Think you’re excited about the Rugby World Cup? You should speak to my Dad. Our house has reached a fever pitch of World Cup excitement. It has been filled with wall charts, rugby ball and shirt balloons and pretty much every game has been screened one after another. We went to the opening ceremony and England v Fiji match last weekend and it was so much fun. With an England scarf wrapped round my neck and beer in hand I cheered along with everyone else and was totally caught up in the excitement. I love a World Cup, but this is better because it’s Rugby which is way better than Football – it’s way more aggressive, there’s always a bit of bloodshed and even sometimes shorts fall down whiiiiiiich is always funny (see South Africa v Japan). To celebrate I made these cupcakes ahead of tonight’s England v Wales game which I’m off to. Half were vanilla filled with raspberry jam which I topped with little red English hand roses. The other half were chocolate filled with caramel and topped with handmade rugby balls which I decorated with edible pen and painted to match the official World Cup Ball. Come on England!
