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.

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.

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.
