I’m a crafter from waaaay back, but thanks to the chaos of toddlers, work and life I just don’t get the chance to do it much these days – so having the opportunity to check out some of the cool new products and crafting ideas at Spotlight’s National Craft Launch for a couple of hours last week was the perfect way to spend my day.
For the second year, Spotlight is hosting National Craft Month during March which is a chance to celebrate all things art, craft, sewing and of course cake decorating! During this month, five mini festivals each displaying a different type of craft are being held in Spotlight stores across the country and just quietly I have already marked the 14th and 15th of March in my diary to attend Cake Fest!
After being inspired to ‘get my craft on’ again, the boys and I headed to our local Spotlight store for some supplies. We picked up some cute Easter themed chicken cupcake cases and toppers as well as some painting supplies and Easter themed art products for the boys. I also bought some supplies to create some easy wall art for their rooms which I’ll share more of in the coming weeks.
Naturally we were eager to use our little chicken cupcake cases and toppers which we bought, and it only seemed fitting to make Easter cupcakes so we came up with this recipe for Chocolate Malteser Cupcakes.
This recipe will most certainly become a regular in our house during the lead up to Easter, after all who can resist a delicious and soft chocolate cupcake with a malteser easter egg centre?!
