Chocolate marshmallow cupcakes and more fondant birds

I am almost relieved the weekend is nearly over and I can stop trying to pretend it is weekend and just go back to work. I worked a significant part of yesterday and a few more hours today. It is tough trying to work with Mr Fox away and the boys at home. They are angels when I am not working but they fight continuously when I am. Definitely attention seeking.

I did manage to bake these lovely chocolate marshmallow cupcakes. I was tempted not to bother but it is Easter next weekend and I always bring a treat for the security guards at my place of work during the pre-Easter week. I felt I couldn’t disappoint them so I went ahead and made them something. It was nice and relaxing so a good idea.


If you want to see how I made them you can visit my Bake and write blog here:

I also managed to make these two fondant birds. The first one is a Knysna Loerie which is found in the Western Cape of South Africa. The second is an eagle. I did cheat with the eagle and remodeled my Roc bird. I was pleased he revamped so well.


Mr Fox has been away this week and is back tomorrow. It is more difficult when he is away as I have to get both boys sorted for school and get both of them there on time. I also need to do all the homework and medication and meal requirements. Never mind, tomorrow is only a day away.

I hope you all have a lovely week.

  1. When I worked in a small school district (6500 students), there are warehouse crew, maintenance crew, all the departments have secretaries. On all the major holidays, I felt like I was Mrs. Santa or Mss Bunny.
    I’m sure your security guard feel very special with your treat, Robbie ❤
    It sounds like Mr. Fox doesn't a lot with your boys, and oh, it's hard for you to be mom and dad. 🙂
    We've been watching the nature of Southern Africa and watch Cape Town. Of course, the videos don't show people town. It's hard on a lot of animals to travel to seek water.

    1. I am sure when you work in a school with children, Miriam, you do end up feeling like the Easter bunny or Father Christmas. Cape Town is having a very hard time with the drought and the animals are suffering. They are getting some rain now.

  2. A busy and stressful time for you Robbie, yet you managed to be creative and generous. I know the guards will appreciate your baking! (A couple of times I brought treats [but from the bakery] to the guards and cleaning people [in my office they clean during the day… very disruptive but no fault of the people doing the work]. The execs never do anything for them. You could tell they appreciated it. It was an expense, but it made me feel good to do it.)
    I love your birds. Hugs on the wing!

  3. Robbie, you are right about children, if mum does her own thing they make sure they get her attention again. You have to teach them to make these beautiful cakes and fondants. Should keep them busy.
    Let Monday roll on in you ur case.:)

  4. I love the birds and the cupcakes look delicious too. Not having any children of my own and only having the experience of my friends’ kids, I can only imagine how much work it must be. Have a lovely week, Robbie!

    1. It is really hard to be at home working during the weekend when there is no-one to help entertain the boys. They keep distracting me and trying to get my attention – that is why I though it would be easier to just be at work with the boys at school.

      1. I look forward to seeing them! You do more than a good job, Robbie. Your attention to detail even captures the feelings of the characters.
