Pete the Cat Cake

Pete the Cat Cake

Ok, so it seems like my posts are once a year right now. I guess I just haven’t been making anything particularly exciting these days, partially due to a lack of time, and part due to my ongoing wrist problems – Bah! Anyway, I thought I would share this wonderfully easy and tasty cake recipe, […]

Eric Carle, for those with limited artistic skill.

(I am just going to gloss over the long blogging absence, I have been making things, but they haven’t been exciting things and I had kind of lost my mojo) We all know I like to make things, but I don’t class myself as being particularly artistically skilled, and was way out of practice at […]

A quick post about Cake.

Just a little wee post today. I had a little get together for my birthday yesterday, made a couple of quiches, had the obligatory cheese and pineapple on sticks, all that jazz. Mr M fired up the BBQ, so he could stand around it with other men and cook meat. The sun shone, the blue […]

Cakes for girls: Thomas the Tank Engine?

It was my friend Jemma’s birthday yesterday. I sent a message to her boyfriend last week to ask him if he was planning on us making her a cake this year…. he responds… this week (cheers Neil) to say yeah, how about something Thomas related? She LOVES Thomas the Tank Engine… yeah… she’s 29. But […]

Mr M is a LEGO fan. In the May the 4th sale, he treated himself to an Ultimate Collectors Edition Imperial Super Star Destroyer…. Mr M and Brother M hard at work. So, to go with his iPad case, I figured I may as well continue on the theme. I took this piece off the […]

The CraftBaketacular: day 6 making the “In the Night Garden” cake.

Ok, it was time to put the plans into action. Time for putting together the cake! As mentioned in the Haahoo post… I can’t make figures. Thankfully I found these, just the right size for a cake, brightly coloured, and of course can be played with after the event too! The request was for a […]

Rainbow Cake

When it came to my birthday last year… I wanted the most colourful cake I could. I gathered my gel colours and set to work. For the mix, I used my standard mix, with 3 eggs for each two layers, dividing it into two bowls, and colouring them separately. I started with the bottom two, […]

#Echelon Birthday Cake.

My best friend Lizzie loves 30 Seconds to Mars. In quite a big way. So, of course the first thing that came to mind when trying to think of what to make her? A Triad. The idea for this cake took shape while I was on holiday, and when we got back I was to […]

An American Ski cake

It is strange to bake in someone else’s kitchen, even more so in a different country with different things. It is never quite as straightforward! —————————————— Your Basic Chocolate Cake Recipe Ingredients: Eggs Self raising flour (or plain flour with baking powder added – no SR in this American abode) Caster sugar Butter Vanilla extract […]
