Vegan Millionaires Shortbread

You might have noticed in a few blog posts recently that I have’t been able to give my posts my full creative time and attention. This probably is quite a good thing as there has been a lot less butchering of different recipes, but I also have to admit that, unfortunately, this week is no different. I say unfortunately with a very sorry, not sorry attitude, and that’s because they are really delicious even though they are vegan!

Bucks Fizz Bass Clef Birthday Cake

As an overly alliterative partner to the Kir Royale treble clef birthday cake I made a few weeks back, this cake was asked for for another member of the same family, and I’m slightly relieved to say it also didn’t disappoint.

Nutella Slice

From Jaffa Cakes to Nutella, it’s safe to say I am piling the sugar in for these blog posts and, even though my jeans might disagree, not a single part of my is even slightly sorry. While this recipe in particular is definitely geared towards those with a sweet tooth and could fall into the borderline health risk category, it is absolutely delicious and I would modestly recommend it.

Jaffa Cheesecake

After taking a week off I have to admit that my lack of posting is very much met with a ‘sorry, not sorry’ attitude. I can, in some ways, try and redeem myself in the sense that I was at least baking myself in the Spanish sun (but my attempts to tan merely resulted in some fairy questionable burn lines), but I cannot make any claim of doing anything more than being thoroughly lazy. While I could go on to make many more smug comments about going to Fib Festival, I will move on before it turns into a 1000 word long ramble and turn to what we’re all here for, Jaffa Cheesecake.

Bucks Fizz Cupcakes

For the first time in a while I can proudly admit that a decision to do a post isn’t entirely random and last minute. Not only had I been a questionable friend in forgetting to make cake for not one, but two of my best friends’ birthdays, one of the girls I was closest to at work finally managed to escape and find a new job so I felt there was cause for celebration all around! So after joking about bringing a bottle of bucks fizz to work I landed on these cupcakes as, I will admit, a somewhat reluctant alternative. But hopefully they were worth it!

Sun dried Tomato, Feta and Herb Bread

Unfortunately since I am, yet again, in a bit of a rush this week, I can’t say that this post demonstrates some of my finest efforts. But, at the end of the day, can you really complain to a sun dried tomato, feta and herb loaf? (My answer is certainly not!).

Treble Clef Birthday Cake

While I was really excited when one of my friends from work asked me to make her daughter’s birthday cake, it’s safe to say I was also slightly apprehensive since I haven’t really made anything that requires any major decorative finesse in a while. And since it was also for her 18th birthday, I felt I really did need to pull out the stops.
