Last weekend Becky came up to stay for a long Christmassy/girly weekend! Of course, the weekend involved plenty of baking. I saw the recipe for this in delicious. magazine last year and really wanted to try it but never got round to it so when I saw it again this year I thought it would make a good pudding for Friday night as well as being suitable to have with tea/coffee.

I can’t believe it’s nearly the end of this years bake off! One more technical challenge to go. I ended up buying the tin for this weeks challenge – you can never have too many cake tins and I am sure I will use it again as it’s a very pretty shape. It’s been a bit of a crazy week as it was Emily’s 1st Birthday last Thursdays, so I had a very important Birthday cake to make which took priority, so I am only getting round to doing this now.

I’ve always wanted to have a go at making fondant fancies and a few weeks ago it was my friend Karen’s 30th Birthday and all the food for the party was kids party themed, so this was the perfect opportunity to give them a go. I definitely need a lot more practise as they aren’t the easiest thing to make, but I had a bit of fun trying them out. The party food was great –  I can’t remember the last time I had Skips or cheese and pineapple on sticks – amazing! Click here for the recipe.
