I made 100 cupcakes and one huge giant cupcake for my sister in law's wedding last Friday. The edible glitter is fabulous. I recommend any baker to purchase some.

Butterfly cakes - an english classic!


Today I had a marathon baking session - after a request from my friend, Rachel - I made some butterfly cakes. Whilst I was in the `baking mood' I went onto made brownies and a plum and cinnamon crumble (plums from our tree in the garden). Not sure when and whether I can eat all of these goodies, so if u live nearby pop in for cake and tea!

40 days and 40 nights - well 39 actually

The cake queen is back. After a long 39 days of no cake or choclate in my life, I went for a cream tea on Easter Saturday. Why do this to myself? Not sure actually. Much will power was needed. It was hard and am glad cake and chocolate are back in my life!

A selection of chocolate scones, with chocolate sauce; divine smooth chocolate tarts; mini hot cross buns; brownie and chocolate bunnies. All washed down with a pot of English Breakfast tea! Heaven.
