I present to you, quite possibly one of my greatest Poundland finds. I know... I need to stay out of that place but I just cannot resist the draw of it.
Delia would not approve of my £1 microwave cupcake in a cup! Cake 'baking' for the ultimate lazy person.
1) Complex directions here, open up the cup, remove packet of top quality (debatable) mixture and empty back into the cup along with 30ml of water.
2) Stir and microwave for 60 seconds.
3) Leave your light and fluffy (errr) cupcake to stand for 2 minutes.
4) Remove of cup and enjoy!
Now, in all fairness, it doesn't look THAT bad and it didn't taste THAT bad... although the texture was a little bit like chewing on a sponge you use to wash the car.
In conclusion, the lazy girls baking companion scores 3/10, mainly as i'm impressed that I ended up with some sort of cake in 60 seconds but not because it was in any way delicious.
I did also pick up a couple of Accessorize nail polishes from Superdrug, a pale khaki green colour called Wyoming and a neon pink called Hot Pink. I like.
I'd also discovered that my housemate Dave had the worlds supply of glow sticks upstairs from a dance production he choreographed so I thought we could try making some glow lanterns after I saw them on Pinterest.
To be honest, I wouldn't recommend trying this as there's tiny pieces of glass like material in the glow sticks and that liquid gets everywhere!
This baby did glow for quite a while though!
I think I would prefer to get some glow in the dark paint and make some of these stars in jars that I saw on simplycreativeinsanity.
You have to try these things right?
