Mint choc chip cupcakes

My first solo attempt at making cupcakes. I got inspiration after attending a cupcake course at 3D Cakes in Roseburn, Edinburgh.

I made these especially for my colleague Zak who is heading back to the states after a successful 6 month placement in my office – they are a good luck gesture towards his future endeavors (hence the four leaf clover theme).

Adding compiler arguments to mxmlc

The other day I was trying to determine how to add additional compiler arguments in an ANT build file when working with Flex’s mxmlc task. I was surprised to discover that Google was fruitless to my requirements. I therefore thought I needed to rectify this by writing a post!

So if you require to add additional compiler arguments through ANT then you need to use the includes tag as shown in the following snippet:


<target name="buildFlexProject"/>
 <echo message="build MyProj"/>
 <property location="${src.dir}/MyProj" name="MyProj.dir"/>
 <mkdir dir="${stage.air.dir}/MyProj"/>

 <mxmlc file="${MyProj.dir}/src/MyProj.mxml"
  output="${stage.air.dir}/MyProj.swf">

  <source-path path-element="${MyProj.dir}/src"/>

  <compiler.library-path append="true"
   dir="${stage.lib.dir}">
   <include name="*.swc"/>
  </compiler.library-path>

  <compiler.library-path append="true"
   dir="${MyProj.dir}/libs">
   <include name="*.swc"/>
  </compiler.library-path>

  <includes>mx.managers.systemClasses.MarshallingSupport</includes>

 </mxmlc>
</target>

Become God for a few minutes

A very funky time lapse – Become God for a few minutes

My dog opening a Christmas present

Not the greatest of recordings but I had to try and capture the moment somehow – unfortunately an HTC Desire was my only means. I am annually entertained by my Jack Russell when he opens his christmas presents; he delicately unwraps the present with his paws. I think it is so adorable.

Well done Jump Research

Last week I got the opportunity to develop the website for my future sister-in-law, Louise Fraser. She has just started her own market research company called Jump Research. Check out the site here.

It was great to be back in CSS and HTML – I had so much fun! I want to thank Ruth Cochrane for the amazing designs and ‘opinions’ (the little characters that appear throughout the site).

I now have the opportunity to extend the content to HTML5 and JQuery mobile but at the moment I just want to say – Good luck Louise!

I had the pleasure of attending a Paul Bradford cake decorating course today. What do you think of the result?
