Evenin' all, it's Cupcake Linzi tonight!
Just thought I would give you a a slither of Cupcake-y goodness and let you know how preparations are coming along for our 'Puttin' on the Blitz' 40's do, the countdown is really on (only 17 days, seen as you asked). It's sure
to be a corker of a night with plenty singing, jiving, laughing and most importantly, lots of scrumptious Cupcake goodies for sale.
We have been rehearsing weekly in our beautiful rehearsal space @ Esporta - The Lanarkshire Health and Racquets Club, putting the final sprinkles to our fabulous routines. We have also been learning our amazing new routine that will be unveiled at our big night. We all just adore it, and wait till you see it; it's sure to hit the headlines (wink, wink)!
The dance is quite tricky in parts, so to help us remember the intricate and complicated choreography, I'm going to let you into a little secret.
We (or should I say, I) have come up with an ingenious system to memorise steps. Remember, this is classified Cupcake business here! Proper trade secrets!
This clever system involves silly rhymes, some rude words and usually, very random phrases. For example, our favourite sequence at the moment includes "Ssh, HAT, She's having a baby, come see, hips, boobs, HAT, kick the baby, boom boom"
And there is definitely a prize for the person who can best recreate our dance using only those words!!! Go on, I dare you, give it a go, just make sure your blinds are drawn and the neighbours can't see in. Please be advised, that no actual babies are harmed in the dancing of this routine, it is purely a figure of speech.
It's Cupcake nonsense like this, that ensures we always have the best fun. To be honest, we spend most of our time laughing uncontrollably, either at each other, or ourselves. And I think that shows when you meet us, we have such a marvellous time being Cupcakes that we never feel like we're working; we all feel truly honoured to be part of Cupcake Lisa's recipe!
We love what we're doing and that wonderful feeling can be quite infectious... you end up dancing or laughing with us, or more often than not, both! Sometimes you might even laugh at us, we have all had our daft moments.
So if you are lucky enough to have purchased your tickets for our 40's bash on April 22nd, then you are in for a real, sweet treat.
And if you haven't got tickets, tough luck! Boss, Cupcake Lisa, has only gone and sold ALL the tickets. You'll just need to wait for a sneaky YouTube clip or make up your own Cupcake routine... just remember, 'Ssh, Hat, she's having a baby, Hips, boobs, Hat, Kick the baby, boom boom'
Toodle Pip cupcake fans, I'm away to practise!
