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 […]

Vampire Spider Cupcakes

Earlier today I stumbled across a photo I did for a kids’ workshop last half term and decided I had to share. Looking back at all my other Halloween bakes over the years there seems to be a prevalence of creepy crawlies, I have an affinity to them and arachnids are far nicer than severed […]

Jubilee Cakes

I know that this probably won’t be the first blog you see featuring Jubilee cakes and it certainly won’t be the last. I think last year’s Royal Wedding and street parties has got people in the ceremonial baking mood. After Mr Whippy Cakes I wanted to have another go at patriotic stripy buttercream and have […]

Reuby, Reuby, Reuby, Reuben

Reuben is a gorgeous little chap who was born back in November. As tradition states I give new mums cakes. Both Maggie’s & Rose’s mums got bite-sized cakes so it was only fair I did the same for Reuben’s mum. While Reuben was gurgling away on the sofa we were reminiscing our care free student days.Gone are the days […]
