Cupcake Monday! Spring Cheer from Sweet Paul
The Spring issue of Sweet Paul magazine is like a juicy jolt of Vitamin C. It's bright and sunny here on the coast, but this morning the winds are wintry and ready to wizen the lips of anyone who ventures outside today, so I'm in search of a bit of seasonal optimism. Sweet Paul has brought us a ton of fun, pretty and tasty Easter ideas using lots of eggs (his favourite ingredient) and pastel colours, but I'm going to save them until it's a bit closer to the date so we can indulge fully (if you can't wait, take a look).
As we can expect from Sweet Paul, a 'flip' through the pages is like daydreaming; the creative food styling, delicious yet easy recipes and gorgeous photography are absolute bliss. And none of it is out of reach, Paul and his equally imaginative contributors love to show us exactly how to bring it all into our own homes, all doable at very little expense and with minimal time commitment - that's what Sweet Paul is all about. (There's nothing more frustrating than having exquisite beauty put in front of our faces when there's no way we can get a piece of it!)
Each feature has its own distinct look. Always very Sweet Paul, yet exciting in its own way. The pages transition from bright washes of light and vivid colour to moody, muted hues and everything in between.
Simple pleasures - candy coloured striped drinking straws. Paul shows you what you can do with them (and they look great just sitting in the bottle, too!)
