Last time I got back from holiday, I bought some Toblerone at the airport, I decided to copy Emma’s idea and use it to make some treats for the office. I chose a summery design, perfect for the warm weather we’ve been having recently. Click here to find out more about these pretty cupcakes.


I’d never made a 100th Birthday cake before, so I was thrilled to be given the opportunity to make one. It was for our close friend’s Granny, who is called Rose, so the request for pink roses on the cake was perfect. The cake was a light fruit cake, a delicious recipe from an old cook book that our Mum has, great for this time of year!  Click here for the recipe.

IMG_3133I love being asked to make cakes that are a bit different and this one was definitely different! Trudy said she wanted a cake for her husband that incorporated his 2 loves – cows and football. With a cake like this, it’s not something that you can google to find a cake to copy and I had no idea what it was going to look like until I started making the cows. Click here to keep reading.

Last week Em and I went on our second 6 day Cake Decorating Course at Squires Kitchen International, this time it was an extended techniques course, building on what we had already learnt on the previous course. We had another amazing week doing what we both love. Click here to keep reading and see some of the beautiful things we created.

 When I was little, every night before bed I would ask to be read the same book: The Very Hungry Caterpillar. For some reason it was my favourite book – maybe because it was all about food! What did the Very Hungry Caterpillar eat today?

IMG_0925This week has been a busy cake week. I usually find that if somebody asks me to make a cake, it usually ends up being for a week when I’m already making one. This week I’ve made two very different cakes, but both had a football theme. The first one I made was this one – a Sunderland football shirt.

Caramel Cookies

IMG_3067The other week I realised it had been a while since I’d baked for the office so I decided I should bake something to take in. I wanted to make something quick and simple, which only needed store cupboard ingredients since I didn’t want to go out to the supermarket, so I decided to make some cookies. After a flick through some of my recipe books I came across these in the Hairy Bikers Big Book of Baking. Despite having to make the caramel to go in them, they’re straightforward (and quick) to make. Need a quick sugar fix?
