Minibakebakegirls early start was for Olympic girl's football in Coventry with Hubby. She was lucky enough to win the tickets in a draw at school. They watched two matches Sweden v Japan and Canada v South Africa. The best match was the second one according to Minibakebakegirl!
Then yesterday we all went to Earls Court to watch men's volleyball. We watched Australia v Argentina and USA v Serbia. We quickly picked up the rules, however I was surprised to see players jumping into where the officials were sitting to hit the ball! I was very taken by the group hugging by the teams - mostly when they scored but sometimes when they didn't. There was also a lot of handshaking and patting on backs! Great team spirit.
Inspired by our weekend, today we made Olympic Torch cupcakes. I have seen cupcakes baked in icecream cones before with the icing piped like icecream and when I saw ones made to look like olympic torches I thought I would give it a go.
I used my standard cupcake mix and just filled the cones like cupcake cases.
They took the same amount of time to bake as normal ones.
I then made red and yellow buttercream for the flames and spooned it alternately into the piping bag.
I am really pleased with how they turned out and Hubby has asked for me to make some more for him to take to work.
Hope you are enjoying the Olympics too, this is our television viewing for the next few weeks.
