OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This year I had a request from Emily for a reindeer Christmas cake. So I had a look on Pinterest for a few ideas and came across a cute cake that I thought looked great so I adapted it slightly. Click here to see this fun cake.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAJust over a month ago it was Emily’s 3rd Birthday. Being a typical 3 year old she was changing her mind every day about what kind of party and cake she wanted, slightly tricky when trying to plan things! Her favourite cuddly toy is her panda and so when I suggested that she had a panda themed party and cake, she seemed very excited and the idea stuck, phew! She takes after both her Aunties with her love of pandas. She asked for the cake to have a Mummy panda, a Daddy panda and and Emily panda on as well as some bamboo, so I did a bit of research and came up with a design.

As it’s Father’s Day today, I couldn’t resist baking a special cake for my Dad as a present. He loves pies, so I thought I would have a go at making a cake and turning it into a pie! I used Pinterest to look for a few ideas and found a great cake made by Clinton’s Cakes with chips, peas and a red and white chequed table cloth. I wanted to make a cake that would keep well for a week and also be one of my Dad’s and hubby’s favourite flavours, so I chose a sticky ginger cake recipe that I have made a couple of times before. Click  here to try a slice of the pie.

PC084580.JPGThis year I decided to try something very different for my Christmas cake, rather than doing something traditional I thought I would do something silly! I’d seen a photo of a turkey cake and thought I would try something similar. I also wanted to try a different flavoured Christmas cake but still wanted it to be a fruit cake so it would keep. Click  here to try out this yummy recipe.

It was Emily’s 2nd Birthday last Friday  and to celebrate we had a small family party at the weekend. She absolutely loves Old MacDonald at the moment and we seem to spend every car journey singing it, along with all sorts of animals as well as some vehicles (usually fire engines and boats) and other random things like peas and macaroni cheese! So I decided to do a farm themed party and an Old MacDonald cake. Click  here to visit Old MacDonalds Farm.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIt’s been a while since Em and added something new to our page, but we’ve still been busy doing plenty of baking! A couple of weeks ago my friends James and Amelia got married and I was thrilled to be asked to make their wedding cake for them. It’s great to be asked to make a cake that’s completely different from anything I’ve done before, so I was very excited when James and Amelia found a photo of a silhouette wedding cake that they really liked. Click here to see some more pictures of this cake.
