The Peppermint Pencil Turns One

Today is exactly a year since I first launched this little blog of mine and what an interesting year it has been.  

I created The Peppermint Pencil as a means to showcase all of the other things outside of illustration that I enjoy doing and to my surprise it has been such a brilliant learning aid.  I love the way that being able to look back on things I've made can push me to improve even further and not just in the process, but in documenting the final thing.  It was such a shock when I realised quite how much thought and effort went in to half decent food photography!

I covered some of my aims for this blog for the future in my Hello 2014 post, however there are some additional ideas that I have in the works, but will reveal those at a later date (oh how mysterious of me).  In the mean time I thought it would be fun for me to share my favourite posts from the past year.  

Here are my top 10 posts in no particular order:

Black Forest Cupcakes (Gluten-Free)

Hand Printed Napkins

Pear, Elderflower and Gin Cocktail

Gluten-Free and Vegan Pop-Tarts

Eton Mess Ice Cream

Pecan, Date, Honey and Raisin Flapjacks

Gluten-Free Goats' Cheese, Red Onion and Spring Greens Pizza

Bloody Eyeballs - Halloween Party Food

Gluten-Free Goats' Cheese Tarts with Balsamic Onions, Tomato and Basil

Chocolate and Berry Pudding Pops (Vegan)
