I love how a simple little thing made with love, like a cookie still warm from the oven, can cheer you up instantly. It's one of the reasons I love to… Continue reading Home made Oreo Cookies
Wow, I've not been here for a while. I'm so sorry but I had such a hectic Summer I didn't have any time to bake. (Shock. Horror!) But in the couple of weeks I've been back at university, I've already baked two chocolate cakes, a banoffee pie and some banana bread. Impressive seeing as I'm… Continue reading Hello again!

It has been bugging me for quite a while how dull my photographs look once I had uploaded them to this blog. I spend hours and hours on Photoshop making each and every shot mouth-watering good. Yet once I view it online, the photos look drained and dull. I mean, I'm not expert photographer but… Continue reading Brightening photos? How Dull
Just a quick post to day I hope everyone had an eggs-ellent day. Mine was cracking! (I don't have any more egg related puns, don't worry.) I have been far too busy with my family to bake- even too busy for the classic bird nest/ cornflake cakes. I do have a banoffee pie lined up so… Continue reading Hope you had a Egg-ellent Day

I literally spent 4 hours in the kitchen only armed with some heart cookie cutters and a piping bag. It was the best of fun though it was exhausting work. And it's all Martha Stewart's… Continue reading Brownie Hearts (Plus Brownie Truffles!)
A few weeks ago, my boyfriend came back from the shops holding two beaten up bananas and asked me to 'Do something with these.' Here's how the conservation went: Him: "Do something with these." Me: "Did you buy them like this?" Him: "No they got broken." Me: "How?" Him: "They were in the shopping bag… Continue reading Banoffee Blondies

If the answer is no, I don't blame you seeing as I'm just setting up an account now. When I ask again in a month's time I'm expecting everyone with an account to say yes!
Sorry I haven't posted lately but I have a good excuse. I've been very poorly with a viral infection (in other words, I got the sniffles). Despite it being March, there has still been snow (good old Blighty), so I've been very under the weather. First I was too weak to stand and bake, and… Continue reading Poorly Me Means No Cakes For You
