We were very much looking forward to bread week! We eat a lot of bread in our house, I bake bread anywhere between 2-6 times a week. Up until a few years ago I rarely made bread as Rich didn’t really eat gluten so had had very little bread making experience. But now Rich is eating it again and I am totally addicted to bread making. I had Chloe as my little helper this week, click here to see how we got on.

This week was biscuit week on the GBBO and we really enjoyed the episode. I loved the idea of making a biscuit mask and might try it one day with the girls, I think they would really enjoy decorating their own masks. I have never made garibaldi biscuit so we were looking forward to trying them out. Click here to see how we got on.

Several months before Chloe’s 3rd Birthday she suddenly announced one morning that she wanted a panda Birthday cake. She’s always loved pandas, just like Emily and her favourite cuddly toy is a panda too. But we hadn’t really talked about Birthday cakes and I don’t think she knew that Emily had a panda cake for her 3rd Birthday too! She was also specific and wanted clouds and turquoise balloons on her cake. Click here to see what I made.

Over the summer we took the girls to see The Jungle Book at the open air theatre at Hever Castle, Emily absolutely loved it and decided she wanted a Jungle Book themed party for her 6th Birthday. So I set about designing a cake – she was quite specific about the things she wanted on the cake – a waterfall, a tree with the number 6 hanging off it, Mowgli, Baloo and the baby elephant. Click here to see what I created.

I volunteered to make some Christmas cupcakes for Emily’s Rainbow’s group for their final session of the year as they were having a Christmas party. Emily requested something with snowflakes, which is good as they were quick and easy to make. I also made the same for her teachers as Christmas presents too. Click here to find out more.
