Tia's chocolate 6th birthday cake

I made a classic chocolate cake covered with chocolate fudge icing for my niece, Tia. The centre of the cake was filled with lots of smarties, which appeared as the cake was sliced!

Pitta Bread

This is made second attempt at making pitta bread (first attempt failed!). I used Paul Hollywood's recipe and it worked very well and was very tasty. Takes a while to make but worth it. I left it to raise for 5 hours as opposed to Paul's suggested 1-3 hours. Our house isn't very warm so it takes longer!

Pretty in Pink Tea cupcakes

A lovely present from my mother in law, silicone teacups and matching saucers. I made vanilla sponge cupcakes and topped with strawberry frosting and white chocolate buttons (which are always good to nibble on whilst you are decorating the cakes!)
