After making Maple syrup Cupcakes this morning, I tried to capture the sticky shine on the tops of the cakes. Today I added a couple of drops of maple extract from the USA to accentuate the flavour even more, although with 1 cup of maple syrup per 12 cupcakes, there’s plenty of flavour going on there!
I set off for a slippery walk around Hilton to try to snap some photos before the snow and ice disappears, although according to the forecasters, I needn’t hurry…
This was the one sign of life I saw and this tree seemed to be thriving in the weather conditions – it was dripping with berries.
This is the compacted snow and ice on the side roads in Hilton – not pleasant to drive on. When I did the school run this morning, the road conditions were very poor, as none of the roads had been gritted. You just hope you don’t meet some nutter coming the other way!
