Friday's Rule!!!

New 'regular feature' alert!!!!!!!

OK, Fridays rule... Fact!
The last day of the week does rule, obviously. 
End of a tough week and start of the glorious weekend, blah blah blah...

But each and every Friday the Cupcakes will be bringing you 'Friday's Rule'!
We will be letting you in on our secret rituals, 
which we like to call 'The Rules'!

And we are starting with Thee most important...

***** Rule #1 *****
Smile! And no one looks at your pants!

Exhibit A - Carol smiling

Our routines are high kicking, fast turning, sharp shifting numbers 
and more often than we care to think of, our skirts lift higher than our spirits!
 At this point we should definitely point out that Rule 1.1 is ALWAYS wear your hotpants.

Exhibit B - We promise Eva is wearing hotpants and is definitely smiling in the above picture!

Rule #1 came about after an unfortunate gig last Summer.
Don't fret, the gig was fantastic and our dancing went down a treat but...
after coming off stage, I, Cupcake Linzi, realised the stunned looks on the faces of some audience members were not because my awesome dancing had left them unbelievably awestruck...
I had indeed forgotten to wear my hotpants!!!
Oh. The. Shame.
My face went the same colour as my hair.

So today I still swear by the sentiment, smile and no one looks at your pants.
That is why it has made it into the Cupcakes Official Rule book 
which you will get a glimpse of, each and every Friday you lucky things.

So remember, Smile and no one looks at your pants....

Well sometimes!!!

Mini Cupcakes Retro Bop

Well, I wish every gig we had was in a 2 mile radius from my house... That would make the life of a Cupcake a lot happier!

Tonight we were delighted to make a guest appearance, in Edinburgh, at St George's School for Girls, at their charity event.

The girls were putting on a Retro Bop, with music and costumes ranging from 1940's to the present day. The girls sure went to town with their costumes and every single one of them looked as cute as a button. The teachers were just as impressive, showing even stuffy teachers can have a Punk side!
For our costumes, we stuck to what we do best, our 40's Army gear and everyone seemed very impressed!

The girls were perfect hosts, making us feel incredibly welcome... well, apart from scoffing the cakes before we could get near them. Locusts comes to mind :)

All handmade by a very talented mum, aren't they lucky!

So we hope to be visiting the girls again soon, but this time girls, please leave us some cakes!

p.s. Our beautiful silk scarves were a very thoughtful gift, we will wear them with fond memories!
