IMG_5134A couple of weeks ago it was my niece Alice’s Christening and I was very excited to be making the cake for her. I’m not managing to fit much baking or cake decorating in at the moment so it was really nice to have a small cake project to work on! Tams asked for something with butterflies, so we looked at loads of designs and decided on the additions of some painted grass and flowers in pinks and purples and a small grey bunny too.

Over Easter weekend it was our Grandma’s 90th Birthday and to celebrate we had a wonderful family weekend together. It all started with a surprise Birthday lunch for Grandma followed by tea and cake of course! Making cakes for the family is always special, particularly this time as Emma and I were always fascinated by the sugar flowers that Grandma used to make, so it was really lovely to be able to make some for her.

P4064141.JPGWe are away for Easter this year as it’s our Grandma’s 90th Birthday, so I thought I’d make an Easter cake a couple of weeks early for a weekend treat when we had friends staying. I loved the sound of this spiced marmalade bundt cake from the Waitrose newspaper a while ago, so thought I would give it a go. I had planned to make an Easter cake last year, but unfortunately ended up spending Easter in hospital with pneumonia, so this year I really wanted to make something special.

I always seem to get asked on my Birthday “Are you baking your own cake?” and the answer is always “YES!” I love baking and it’s the one cake a year where I get to do exactly what I want! So this year I made the banoffee cake which was in March’s Olive magazine and chose a design that was simple but elegant. Click here for the scrummy recipe.

The year following the arrival of Emily was a busy year of cake baking for me (although I was too busy to blog and upload any photos, so I’m playing catch up now!), having made lots of new local Mummy friends, I suddenly found myself being asked to make 1st Birthday cakes and Christening cakes! Kids Birthday cakes are always fun to make, full of bright colours and interesting characters and this one was no exception. Click here to see all the details of this 1st Birthday cake.

Emma’s favourite book when we were little was the Hungry Caterpillar and it’s also one of Emily’s favourites too, she knows almost all the words! A couple of years ago I was asked to make a cake for Rich’s Godson Freddie and was very excited about the theme. Click here to see some more pics of this cake and matching cupcakes.

A couple of years ago now my friend Sarah became a consultant, so to celebrate, her hubby arranged a party and I couldn’t resist making a cake for the occasion. I did some research and found a cake I liked on Pinterest. I based my design on this, the original can be found here. Click here to find out more.
