Merry Christmas

Christmas pudding cupcakes..... sooooooooo yummy! 

White chocolate ganache 


Sweet cream


The sweet cream worked best. After all that rich Christmas food it was nice to have something light!!

The holly decoration was made using green and red sugar paste.

Fireman Sam cake 

I have to admit it was not best but it was still fun to make.




The lady who ordered it seemed very happy with it as did the little boy it was for.

New baby cupcakes

These were made for one very special family, plus an extra special cupcake for little Sam. 
Emily arrived only a few weeks ago, her Auntie Cara asked me to make cupcakes to celebrate her arrival into the world. 


Sam's special cupcake just for him...

This was another baby shower for two ladies, one expecting a boy and one a girl. 



I hope they enjoyed them xxx

Black Forest Gateau

This was my first ever attempt at a black forest gateau and to be honest it scared me a little, the recipe said caster sugar, eggs and cocoa powder. But what about the flour and margarine???? I was very confused!!

Anyway after mixing the egg yolks and sugar, I then folded in the cocoa powder. Then I whisked the egg whites and folded them in slowly too... then split the mixture into two separate tins and achieved this: 


After it had cooled I poured some of the juice from the morello cherries over the two layers then spread fresh cream over one layer then placed morello cherries all over the cream, I then covered the whole cake with the left over fresh cream and grated chocolate.


Possibly the lightest tastiest cake I've ever made!

Tia's birthday cupcakes

Giant cupcakes!

My boyfriends sister in law is very heavily pregnant, is there a better excuse to stuff yourself on your birthday? I think not! So for Tia's birthday this year I made her giant cupcakes, covered with butter icing, blush edible pearls and edible diamonds. 


She loved them. 
Giant cupcakes are such a fab idea especially if they are for the girls xxx

With the left over mixture I made a few different sizes to test out on the folk at work.


Again these went down well.
