Cupcakes And Homemade Playdough!

This weeks special offer on facebook "the cupcake queen" is chocolate orange cupcakes...yummy!
Chocolate orange sponge with choc orange buttercream and a slice of terry's chocolate on top. £5 for a box of 4.
Also this week is half term so trying to think of lots to keep the children occupied.... today i made homemade playdough.This is always a great success with my kids and this recipe has to be the best I've found. Which is a Tana Ramsay recipe.I know its not a cake recipe but if you've got children once you've made this it'll keep them occupied for hours!
2 cups plain flour
1 cup salt
1 cup water
food colouring
2 tbsp vegetable oil.

mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. If using a mixer then put on the dough hook.If the mix is too sticky add more flour and if too dry add a bit more water.
Turn out onto a floured board and kneed well.
This playdough will keep for a few days in an airtight container in the fridge......heres sophie max and william with their playdough today x
