Bluebird Tea Co. Christmas Range

I absolutely love tea (as you may well already know) and was super excited when a parcel arrived from Bluebird Tea Co. They kindly sent me lot’s of loose tea’s ¬†from their Christmas range to try out and review. I have already tried one other tea from their Autumn range which you can read about […]

October Favourites

It’s been a while since I last wrote a monthly favourites post what with being extra busy creating lot’s of delights for my Great British Bake Off Bake Along series and preparing for our annual Halloween pumpkin party. Now that GBBO 2016 and Halloween is over (sad face) I can, however focus on upcoming cake […]

Venturing onto YouTube

Video tutorials are something I’ve wanted to venture into for some time now and I finally made the leap a couple of weeks back with my first ever easy bake recipe for rock cakes! Rock cakes bring back memories of my childhood in the kitchen as these are one of the first things I ever […]

Baking with BakeBox

I’ve recently noticed there are quite a few baking related subscription boxes popping up on my social media and was thrilled when BakeBox kindly sent me two of their bi-monthly subscription boxes recently to review. The boxes are beautifully packaged and the contents are wrapped in tissue paper. Each box has a theme and you […]

Cake Bag Review

So this month saw the launch of a new monthly subscription box – Cake Bag. I only found out about it through Twitter. There are so many different monthly subscription boxes that I’ve heard of through social media & friends that have signed up to them. This one really caught my attention though as it […]

Springtime Bakes

Springtime is here…supposedly. It seemed very much like it on Good Friday…but this Easter weekend, the weather seems to have taken a turn for the worse and all we’ve had is wind & rain!! When I can’t venture outside I love to stay in and do a spot of baking. So this week I’ve been […]

Farewell 2015

So as 2015 is starting to draw to a close, I felt like I should write one last post for the year and reflect back over what I’ve enjoyed most this past year and share some of my favourite cake creations. 2015 has certainly been a busy one! I enjoyed visiting many places this year […]

Smart Cookies – Nerdy Nummies

This week I’m busy baking a cake order, but in between the baking, I’ve had a bit of time to have a proper read of Rosanna Pansino’s first cookbook – Nerdy Nummies. I only recently discovered Ro’s work thanks to one of my good friends; Naomi, who said I should check out her YouTube channel. […]

Down the rabbit hole

It’s the 150th year of Lewis Carroll’s – Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland & there is plenty of events and items to mark the occasion including The Alice in Wonderland Exhibition at the British Library, which runs from the 20th November 2015 – 17th April 2016. I’m really looking forward to visiting the exhibition as Lewis […]

Busy Bee

I have certainly been a busy bee lately with all the baking I’ve been completing for cake orders and a friends Birthday. It’s actually quite nice that I have a week off from orders and work this week so it’s given me a chance to experiment in the kitchen! I seem to be obsessed with […]
