Cycling in the Cotswolds and Carrot Cupcakes

Today we went cycling around Cotswolds Water Park in the lovely October sunshine:

We parked in South Cerney to save paying and queuing for the official car park and took this route from the AA, which was great- really flat, easy and scenic cycling. I have that lovely feeling that comes from doing something free and good for you!
On a less ‘good for you’ note, I’ve also been busy in the kitchen, making these carrot and raisin cupcakes with cream cheese icing from the Primrose Bakery cookbook:

These are quite thrifty as they use oil, rather than butter, which I find tends to be cheaper and they were really quick to make. I froze the leftover icing for next time as the quantities were very generous. We are taking them round to meet the folk who live in the residential home (we live in the grounds of the house) now, let’s hope they enjoy them!
