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.

P1230149For the last two weeks I’ve been lacking sleep. Partly because of the Olympics (why do most of the finals have to be in the middle of the night?!) and partly due to being at a hen do last weekend for one of my friends, Sian. These Olympic themed cupcakes were for Sian’s hen do. We had a mini Olympics during the day on Saturday so I decided that some themed cupcakes would help re-fuel the athletes!

I’d never made a 100th Birthday cake before, so I was thrilled to be given the opportunity to make one. It was for our close friend’s Granny, who is called Rose, so the request for pink roses on the cake was perfect. The cake was a light fruit cake, a delicious recipe from an old cook book that our Mum has, great for this time of year!  Click here for the recipe.

Just before Christmas I was very excited to be asked to be a God Mother and also excited about being asked to do the Christening cake. The top tier of Matt and Beckie’s wedding cake had been stored for a couple of years, so I spent a few weeks feeding it with brandy before decorating it. I love the grey and yellow elephant theme they chose and had been asked to do a similar themed baby shower cake for the week before, you can see the cake here. They also requested some matching cupcakes, read on to find out more about these cute elephant cakes.

Last weekend was my sister-in-laws wedding and I couldn’t have been more excited! When we arrived at my mother-in-laws on Wednesday evening, it felt just like Christmas, with all the excitement and anticipation of the big day. There’s something really special about a family wedding. I was over the moon to be asked to do the cake and when the design was chosen I was really pleased to discover that it was something different to anything I had attempted before.

P1170334A few weeks ago my close friends James and Jen had a beautiful baby girl. I was keen to make some cupcakes as a gift, but having made the baby face ones several times I was looking to try out something different. Click here to find out what I made…
