Victoria Sponge Cupcakes

Last weekend I was lucky enough to get to bake for my friend’s Baby Shower! I was feeling a little nervous, especially as I was trying something new and something I had invented in my head a little. Despite this the cakes were a success and I was really happy with how they turned out! I was trying to recreate a Victoria Sponge in a cupcake- a springy vanilla sponge with a raspberry jam centre, topped with a vanilla buttercream. Perfect accompanied with a cup of tea!

Oreo Cupcakes

Another year has flown past and it’s my Birthday which means a Birthday bake was in order! Since I’ve been on a health kick since the start of the year, I am grabbing any opportunity to bake with both hands. Especially when it isn’t related to wedding cake prep I am trying my best to bake something I’ve never made before. It’s been months since I’ve made cupcakes so wanted to try a new cupcake creation.

Hot Cross Buns

As Easter is fast approaching one of my favourite baked goods is back on the shelves- Hot Cross Buns. Hot Cross Buns mix some of my favourite flavours together into one delicious bun. I have always bought them thinking I need to try to make them myself one day. Year after year I get put off by the thought of having to make a bread dough. It isn’t something I’m very confident with. However, this recipe proved that sometimes just putting your mind and trying something different can lead to surprising results!

With a few finishing touches and decorations this cake turns from something which looks super simple, to something which looks gorgeous!

Chocolate Mousse Pots

Finally, January is over! Like most people, I jumped on the health bandwagon after eating my bodyweight over Christmas. Unfortunately, that did mean putting a pause on my hobby and blog for a while whilst I threw myself into healthy eating. But, you’ve got to treat yourself sometimes! What better way to kick start the year than with chocolate! In keeping with the wellbeing theme too, these Chocolate Mousse pots are still reasonable in terms of calories and sugar- it’s a win, win! Perfect for a weekend treat or Valentines!

Festive Stollen Muffins

It’s Christmas time! My favourite time of the year. The tree is up, the house is decorating, I’m now just waiting to finish work and enjoy the relaxation! One of the best things about Christmas is not just the excuse to drink an extra gin but also to eat yummy food which only comes around this time of year! I wanted to get baking some festive foods and try something different from what I’ve done before. Stollen Muffins sounded like a delicious, easy, weekend bake to get into the Christmas mood!
