I never got round to writing about my Christmas cake last year and as I tried a new recipe I thought it was worth adding to our Christmas blogs this year. The recipe was from the Sainsbury’s magazine and was a really lovely moist squishy Christmas cake. Click

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.

Last weeks challenge had to wait till we got back from Devon earlier this week, so I made this on Wednesday and assembled it on Thursday morning in a bit of a rush while trying to get Emily breakfast and get ready to go out. None of the individual parts were too complicated, but it was very time consuming to make! Click  here to see how I got on.

P1220325A.jpgIt must be time for some Easter baking! This year I haven’t had time to bake a big cake, so I decided to make a couple of batches of cupcakes –  some for our family trip this weekend and some for the local baby group I go to on a Thursday morning. I hadn’t managed to go shopping this week, so I had to pick a flavour that had only store cupboard ingredients in – I really struggled, but found that Earl Grey tea cupcakes were the same as the vanilla ones and the only extra ingredients were a few tea bags.

It was my Birthday last week, so it was time to bake myself a cake and try out some new recipes. I really don’t mind making my own Birthday cake and it gave me the opportunity to try something new. Click here to see which recipe I chose.

Making a gingerbread house has become an annual event with my friend Anne. Each year we seem to spend more time talking and drinking tea and less time making and decorating our gingerbread! It’s great fun and hopefully we’ll be doing it for many more years to come. This year I decided to make a bird box and keep the colours simple with just white Royal icing with a few red highlights.

P1200517I bake quite a lot of gluten-free cakes for my running club as there are several people that follow a gluten-free diet, so I was interested to see what this week challenge would be. When I saw that it was bread, all I could think about were the horrible gluten-free flat breads I had tried to make a few years ago, which were like cardboard! I didn’t think I would ever be making gluten-free bread again… Click here to see how I got on this time round.

FullSizeRenderAt the weekend I decided to give last weeks technical challenge a go. It looked impressive but I couldn’t help thinking that it looked like a pavlova, just constructed in a slightly different way. However, I put my doubts to one side and bought a ridiculous number of eggs so that I could spend an afternoon making a mess in the kitchen. Click here to keep reading.

This week is national cupcake week, possibly the best week of the year! I have been baking lots of cupcakes recently in particular for the hen parties I have been to this month. The 1st of 3 hen parties was for my lovely friend Anna who I met through our running club, she is getting married at the end of the month (look out for the blog about her wedding cake next month). I decided to do something different for her cupcakes rather than making the usual silly rude ones.
