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. I am a peanut butter addict, so when I saw this recipe in Olive magazine, I had to make it! Click here for the scrummy recipe.

Owl Woodland Cake

Last year was a busy year and I didn’t get round to uploading photos of most of the cakes I baked. October and November were especially busy – with Emily’s 1st Birthday too. We had a small family party on the weekend of her Birthday and I made a baby friendly cake to eat – chocolate and beetroot. I wanted to do something woodland or owl themed and something where all the decorations could be made in advance, so this design was perfect. I had seen an idea on Pinterest and added some extras and changed a few things to make it fit the theme of the party. Click here to see more details of this cake and the yummy recipe.

It’s always fun to try new recipes of traditional things that people have reinvented. So when I was looking through my Christmas Olive magazine and came across a gluten free baking section I was very excited to see a recipe for Stollen bars. My husband’s family love Stollen – they spent several years living in Germany where Stollen originated. This recipe is amazing and well worth baking this Christmas. Click  here to try this recipe.

I’ve been making the same mince pies for years so decided to try something different this year. I had a look through my recipe books and found Nigella’s frangipane mince pies which sounded really good. I also made my own mincemeat too and used a different recipe which wasn’t as good as Delia’s so I’ll be going back to her recipe next year! Click  here to try these mince pies.
