Everything in moderation… Except cake!! 🙂
I’m quite a keen amateur baking, but who isn’t since the popularity of the great British bake off?! I am no where near their level of skill! I cannot do pretty decoration, I can stick a load of kit kats round a cake and call that decoration but I’ve never tried the whole pretty fondant icing cakes. I’m not going to be negative and say I can’t do them because I have never tried. I’m sure if I did try I would be absolutely awesome at it!! Lol
Anyhoo, I was browsing through pictures on my phone and realised I have lots of pictures of my baking so I thought I’d share and make you all hungry!!
The most amazing chocolate cookies ever, they are a Mary Berry recipe using condensed milk! The cookies are chewy and the white chocolate button on top kinda caramelises and goes yummy!
Cinnamon swirl loaf, a great British bake off recipe. This makes the most amazing toast and eggy bread in the word.
Coffee and walnut cake, I made this for Mother’s Day for my Mum and Grandma. It’s my mums favourite cake and she loved it. I think this was a BBC recipe.
Scones! Just look at the height of these beauties!!
Pear and walnut upside down cake. This was scummy with a drizzle of cream over it, it’s not the prettiest looking cake but it tasted fab. I needed a larger cake tin but I ended up with a smaller but deeper cake. I never have the right size cake tin for recipe.
This was a scrummy 30th birthday cake for a friend last year. I love the chessboard detail, it’s quite easy to do with a tiny bit of piping expertise and it looks impressive.
This is probably the cake my friends would ask me to make for any occasion, everyone seems to love it! It’s a chocolate brownie cheesecake an I’ve got to admit it is pretty tasty. It is a hummingbird baking recipe but they layer a raspberry cream on the top, I’ve never done this as I don’t feel it needs it.
Hot cross buns, nuff said.
Bagels are one of my favourite things to bake, there are a pretty basic bread recipe just with a little added boiling stage, and people are really impressed when you’ve made your own! Yippee!
Pigs in mud cake, I’ve talked about this before zzzzzz
Pigs in mud with M&Ms instead of pigs
Yet another pigs in mud cake!
Phew! Hope I haven’t bored you all too much but there’s just a few baking bits to inspire you to go and eat cake! Yes I’m showing too! Hehe
