Rio Brazil 2016 Olympic Cupcakes

It doesn’t seem like 4 years ago that we were gearing up to London 2012; now it’s Rio’s turn to host the Olympic Games. Back in 2012 a local school asked me to run an Olympic themed cupcake workshop for their summer holiday club. This week I was back to repeat the workshop with a […]

cherry and coconut hot cross buns

Cherry and Coconut Hot Cross Buns

While tradition states Hot Cross Buns should be eaten on Good Friday, many shops now sell these fruit studded buns all year round.

Christmas Pudding Krispie Cakes

This Christmas is going to be very different for us. Last year was spent it telling our families of the impending arrival of Little Baker (LB) by giving the future grandparents this book and counting the seconds before the penny dropped and tear/squeals started. This year 5-month-old LB will be joining us at the dinner […]
