img_4934aI’ve had a short break from making cakes since Christmas – partly because I haven’t had any to make (not that that usually stops me!) and partly because I’ve been busy at work so haven’t had much time. Luckily though, to end the cake drought, I got a message from Una asking if I could make her Harry Potter themed cake. Tap here and say “I solemnly swear I am up to no good”…

Over the last few months, lots of my friends have had babies. Having just had a baby myself 4 months ago, I know how crazy the first few days and weeks can be.

Click here to see how these cakes are made.

Every year for Tom’s birthday I make him a cake. This year it’s a bit late since we were on holiday but I promised I’d make him something to take to work when we got back. It took a while to come up with an idea but I went through a list of things Tom likes and cakes I’ve made, and realised I’ve never made him a cheese-related cake. More cheese please!

 When I was little, every night before bed I would ask to be read the same book: The Very Hungry Caterpillar. For some reason it was my favourite book – maybe because it was all about food! What did the Very Hungry Caterpillar eat today?

IMG_3011Last weekend it definitely felt like spring had arrived. We’d also had some lovely sunny days at the start of the week so I couldn’t resist making some spring cupcakes but after I made these on Wednesday evening the weather suddenly changed – I woke up on Thursday morning to see it was snowing! However, these little birdies definitely helped to brighten the day. “Chirp chirp, tweet tweet, chirp…” I mean click here to keep reading.
