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!

Last time I got back from holiday, I bought some Toblerone at the airport, I decided to copy Emma’s idea and use it to make some treats for the office. I chose a summery design, perfect for the warm weather we’ve been having recently. Click here to find out more about these pretty cupcakes.

When I went to the supermarket earlier I spotted that they had British strawberries. I refuse to buy strawberries unless they’re British since the flavour of non-British ones just isn’t as good, so when I saw these I picked up a couple of punnets. I carried on doing the weekly shop and when I got to the cream section I saw that there was one pot of clotted cream left. So I decided I was going to make some scones for afternoon tea – it was meant to be! Would you like some afternoon tea?

cake cornerThis wedding cake was a last minute favour for somebody at work. Luckily though, I didn’t have to make the cake, just ice and decorate an 11″ square fruit. It was a single tier cake and I loved the simplicity of the design they chose – a white cake with purple and lilac flowers around the base.

P1170242AIf you follow us on Facebook and/or Twitter you’ll probably have seen some baking over the last 12 months that hasn’t made it onto the blog.

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.

W0125_433Just over seven weeks ago I made this wedding cake for one of best and oldest friends, Nic. It was very different to anything I’d made before – no fondant icing or fancy decorations, just cake and buttercream. Nic and Alex wanted the cake to be the dessert so they chose red velvet (which is also Alex’s favourite cake flavour!). Had I known that the wedding was going to be in a marquee on the hottest day of the year, I probably would have tried to suggest a different cake! Click here to keep reading.
