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.

I can’t believe it’s nearly the end of this years bake off! One more technical challenge to go. I ended up buying the tin for this weeks challenge – you can never have too many cake tins and I am sure I will use it again as it’s a very pretty shape. It’s been a bit of a crazy week as it was Emily’s 1st Birthday last Thursdays, so I had a very important Birthday cake to make which took priority, so I am only getting round to doing this now.
