minion cakeI’ve made 3 minion cakes now, and I’m aware my blog is starting to look a bit like it’s been taken over by minions, but it turns out that everyone loves a minion cake so I keep getting asked to make them!

hazelnut macarons I remember looking around my house before I bought it and thinking that the oven was probably rubbish – it looked as old as me. However, after four and half years of baking in it, I can honestly say I wouldn’t change it… even if somebody offered me a brand new top of the range oven.

20131210-074258.jpg One of the girls in the office, Simran, loves the Hummingbird Bakery and always goes when she’s in London. Her favourite flavour cupcake/the one she always has is this one: red velvet with a cream cheese frosting. So I promised that I would, at some point, make some red velvet cupcakes to bring into the office. I eventually got round to making them last summer. And it’s taken me just as long to get round to blogging about them. If you can’t wait any longer for a red velvet cupcake click here.

20140108-200258.jpg Last weekend I got to make another minion cake. I loved the first one I made for Tom’s birthday and really wanted to make another one, so I was pretty excited when he asked if I could make one for somebody he works with. Do you want to meet minion number 2?
