I love pavlova so I was looking forward to making this recipe. Apart from the fact it’s vegan it looked like a normal pavlova! I have to admit to this one not being entirely vegan – I used normal white chocolate and a normal yoghurt (I figured they weren’t the “technical” part of the challenge, wouldn’t alter the overall taste/appearance and I didn’t have them!).

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.

We’ve had a really busy couple of months with various wedding cakes and visiting friends and family, so I made the most of a quiet 20 mins earlier while Emily was watching Stickman to write about the cupcakes I made for everyone when we visited friends this weekend. The wedding cake I made a couple of weeks ago had 2 tiers of coffee cake in and I tried a Hummingbird recipe that sounded like it would give an amazing coffee hit. The cake was so good that I decided to make some coffee cupcakes for this weekend too. Click here to take a look at the Hummingbird Bakery’s espresso cupcake recipe.

Hopefully this will be the first of many Christmas baking blogs this year and as usual there are so many scrummy looking recipes to try out it’s going to be hard to narrow it down. As it’s the last Met League before Christmas I couldn’t resist making some red and gold Christmas cupcakes for the Serpie runners. We haven’t been to any xc races yet this season as we now live quite far away and Rich injured his knee recently which has meant he can’t run at the moment. But after 4 years of not being able to run because of a back injury, I am now able to run 6km so I am very excited to be able to take part! Click  here to try out our first Christmas recipe.

P9023101.JPGWe are both very excited that the Great British Bake Off has started again! And despite the move to Channel 4 we were pleased to see that the format is exactly the same and although we miss Mary Berry, Mel and Sue, the new presenters did a great job. So it’s now time to start trying all the technical bakes again! It has got off to a good start, chocolate mini rolls looked like a great challenge and something I haven’t made before. Click  here to see how I got on.

Last weekend I got to make a christening cake for my niece, Emily. Becky sent me a photo of a cake she’d seen on Pinterest and asked if I could make something similar. Click here to keep reading.

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.
