It was my Birthday last week and I can’t think of a better way to spend the day than baking myself a cake! I don’t often get to bake exactly what I want, the cakes I usually do are for customers, so it’s really enjoyable to find a new recipe and experiment with some new designs.

IMG_2968In my office there is a cake trolley every Friday for charity – the charity changes each month. February’s cake trolleys were to raise money for Maggie’s Centre in Newcastle – Maggie’s offers free practical, emotional and social support to people with cancer and their families and friends. Until last week I’d been busy every Friday in February making cakes for other people. So last Friday was the first week I was able to bake something for the trolley and I wanted to make something slightly different so on Thursday night this little piggy stayed home and made these piggy-themed cupcakes!
