Bears birthday.

Friday my boy was 6… 6! And I know everyone says the same, where has the time gone, it feels like only yesterday he was born etc… and I am no exception. It really does feel like yesterday he was born, wrapped up and rushed out the door before I had even set eyes on…

My 3rd and favourite Wedding Cake.

 Hi all, this post has taken me a while to write, summer holidays coming to an end so I’m hoping to be a little better with my blogging activities! Some lovely friends of ours got married on Saturday 26th August, it was an amazing day.  They had asked me to make their wedding cake when…

Naked wedding cake!

Oreo bear cake balls.

What better post to write on a Saturday morning than one about cake balls. Better still ‘No bake!’ I made these for my sisters birthday, they are so easy and so so yummy! I could have eaten all of them but alas, they weren’t for me so I had 2! I didn’t bother following a…

Beatrix Potter Cake

Bunnies, ducks and hedgehogs… Just some of the wonderful animals featured in the Beatirx Potter books. I adore Beatrix Potter books, when I was younger I had a huge book full of all the stories, I still have that book now. With my little scribble on the first page. A Beatrix Potter cake I had…

Speedy Summer Dessert

    Summer time looks like it’s finally on the way!   And in this heat the last think you want to be doing is slaving away in the kitchen when you can be outside enjoying this weather! No summertime is complete without a BBQ, every Saturday, every day who cares 😉 and this dessert is…

LBBs 1st Birthday!
