The collection ranges from simple and classic to extravagant and decadent styles and with over 24 flavours to choose from including red velvet, chocolate and orange and fruitcake ‘without the bits’ brides will be spoilt for choice!

Mary Sinclair, founder of GC Couture, said: “The GC Couture 2012 collection has been individually and creatively designed around the style and genre of the Princesses of our time.

 A lovely collection of cupcakes from GC Couture - yum!

Each cake will attract brides looking for something different: whether art deco, classic or vintage, our collection has something to catch every bride’s eye.”

The cute packaging and cake icing designs certainly caught my eye!  I love the attention to detail which always makes cupcakes stand out from the rest. If you are looking for a sparkling showstopping design or pretty vintage style then you have come to the right place. Where some cupcakes fail to hit the spot, GC Couture have got it in one. I’m a sucker for decorative accents like the butterfly or star cut-outs and sprinkles, all tastefully done.

 My favourite of the bunch, from (l - r) chocolate, vanilla, lemon and fruitcake "without the bits"

I adored the red velvet cupcake, which is always a favourite of mine.. But the option which I wouldn’t normally choose for a wedding was the chocolate and orange flavour. This cupcake was moist, chocolately and not overloaded with icing just how I like my cakes!

 I love the decorative accents on the cupcakes like the stars, glitter and sprinkles

My fiancĂ© is a big fan of fruit cake but I’m not such a fan of the “bits” so you can imagine my joy when I realised that GC Couture had answered my prayers and have created the cupcake “fruitcake without the bits” – perfect for fussy eaters like me and tasty too!

So now every bride can feel like a princess with these show-stopping cupcakes, guaranteed to add the wow-factor to your wedding day!

Malia Obama Nearly As Tall As Dad!

 Malia with her sister and Dad, almost as tall as her father!

Do you remember the famous picture of President Obama, his wife and two little daughters in their family photo portrait?

 The famous family portrait of the Obamas

Well they are not so "little" anymore! Malia Obama, 13, is almost as tall as her parents!  At the moment, she is 5'9, her mother Michelle, 5'11 and her father the president 6'1.

The president even joke about his daughter's height during a speech last July saying, "Even though she's five-nine, she's still my baby."

 Loving the blouse and those biker boots Malia!

I love these photos I found of Malia, her outfits are really cute, she is obviously well aware of the fashion trends (polka dots, biker boots, pussybow blouses) but still dressing appropriately for her age. Go Malia!

The polka dot peter pan blouse is my favourite outfit!
