Blueberry-Crostata-738

It feels like I haven’t baked for ages! To be honest, I think it’s because my mind has been elsewhere…we decided to get a beautiful kitten and she is such a wonderful time waster! So all my time has been taken up getting to know her rather than in the kitchen. And after the epic […]

I’m so excited by this Millenium Falcon Cake….and I’m not really into Star Wars! (and my husband enjoyed getting geeky and putting the star backgrounds in to the photos). A good friend and colleague is moving on to a new job this week so I was asked to make him a Goodbye cake, and the […]

After a week of pain (in more ways than one!)  it was a welcome distraction when I was asked to make a birthday cake for a friend of a friend. Vintage Shabby Chic was the brief…so I set to the trusty internet to find some inspiration. I couldn’t find anything that I liked the look […]

It’s been a pretty tough few weeks so last weekend I decided to make a simple cake to use up some leftover apples and take my mind off things. I love apple cake and this one from Buttercream Blondie sounded amazing with all the spices added. And really easy too – it took me no […]

This is the third cupcake batch that I made last weekend. Vegan cupcakes were requested so I went to the trusty vegan cupcakes recipe book and chose the cookies and cream version of the chocolate cupcake.
