IMG_3564I made an Easter cake again this year for a charity raffle at work. Unfortunately I was ill the week before so didn’t have as much time as last year and had to choose a simpler design. Sometimes simple is best but I think I still prefer the cake I made last year. The cake this year was being raffled on Wednesday so I made a Simnel cake from the BBC website that would last until the Easter weekend.

Sheep Cupcakes

IMG_3590A few weeks ago I made some cupcakes to take to the Leeds office when I went down for the day. I was planning on making them again to take to work but I was too busy/tired and then got ill. I didn’t get any good photos of them so I realised that if I wanted to put them on the blog I’d have to make them again… what a shame! Click here to make these sheep… Baaaaa!

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.

main cakeA few weeks ago I said that I would make an Easter cake for the office to raffle off for charity. I hadn’t decided what cake I would make so I used my usual source of inspiration – Pinterest. However, none of the Easter ideas I’d pinned last year jumped out at me so I decided to have another search. I was looking for ideas rather than something to copy completely but after I saw this cake I decided that there wasn’t much about it that I wanted to change. Is it Easter yet?!

Last year for Easter Emma and I were back at our parents for a few days, so we thought it was about time we made a mess of Mum’s kitchen and did some baking! We wanted to do a slightly different take on a traditional Simnel cake, and came across this yummy chocolate orange Simnel cake recipe. The decoration was another idea taken from Pinterest. So if you haven’t made a cake yet, this one is lovely and the decoration is fairly simple too. Click here to keep reading…

 Word of warning – if you make these cupcakes you might end up with a speckled kitchen too! Still want to have a go at making them?
