Cakes and birthdays

I fell off the blogging wagon about ten weeks ago and realise it is a bit like falling off a gym or diet regime. So without further ado these are a few of the cakes I have made in that time.

The Vegas theme was requested for a 30 year old's birthday. It really was great fun to do and with so many moulds around it was easy to get a good look.

The music themed cake was created at such short notice I am amazed it turned out so well. Fondant covered kit-kats for the piano keys and a spaghetti maker to roll the black fondant evenly and voilà. I normally use fondant instead of Swiss buttercream for top layer but was happy with the finished effect given it was my first time.

Final one for this blog- THE best chocolate cake EVER- according to my expert tasters, my daughters. The double chocolate cake recipe is from Miette, named after the San Francisco bakery,

Any questions on any of the above I'd be happy to answer.

Welcome to my blog! After a L O N G break from blogging during which Instagram (vannilla)took over my life, I am returning in a more varied format. Yes, I will bake and have been a Thermomix users from the days before it was cult-like. I'll share the best but I will also include that other hobby in my life, photography from my small island and beyond. If you like what you see, I'd love to hear from you! Anne

i'd love to hear from you...
