5 minute cupcake

The email has been doing its rounds....but in case you did not receive it, here is the recipe!

4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips
A tiny drop of vanilla extract
1 large coffee cup (otherwise it would be a mug-cake)

Mix the dry ingredients together. Add the egg and mix well. Add the milk and oil and mix again. Add the chocolate chips and vanilla extract and mix a final time. Pop it into the microwave and cook for 3 min at 1000 watts.

Enjoy ♥

My first repeat pattern.

I have been wondering for quite some time how to create one of those thingies that fit perfectly into either side of itself. Well, considering myself lucky, I was born with a somewhat technical mind. Sometimes a bit too technical which causes me to complicate matters instead of simply figuring it out. After some research and a bit of cutting and pasting, I finally mastered the art of creating a repeat pattern. I can see many joyful times to come!
