DIY Wedding Cake: Pink Ombre Lemon Madeira with Lemon Curd and Lemon Buttercream

DIY Wedding Cake: Part 2 The Party

You might have already read my blog post about making a wedding ceremony cake for my mum and her partner’s wedding. If not, go and read it now! Not only did I make a cake for the ceremony, I also made cakes for the party. Three two-tiered cakes to be exact. I wanted to share how it all went, and hopefully show that homemade wedding cakes are definitely possible.

Floral Carrot Cake with Orange Buttercream

Floral Carrot Cake with Orange Buttercream

Sometimes baking can really lift your mood in ways you don’t expect. I made this Floral Carrot Cake with Orange Buttercream on a very rainy day. With lots of baking on the day’s list, and still wearing my PJs, I was in a massive grump. One of those grumbly for no reason moods. And I couldn’t work out how to shake it. My favourite Easter biscuits were delicious but seemed unphotographable. I missed a chilling step in a batch of Lemon bars and they ended up unpleasing greasy. The kitchen was a mess and I felt lazy and useless.Floral Carrot Cake with Orange Buttercream

Valentine’s Day Lavender Shortbread Hearts

I have to admit that for me, Valentine’s Day is not a big deal. Neither me or the boyf are particularly fussed about it, and with his birthday a few days before I’m always out of present ideas. Although we don’t celebrate the day itself, baking is the way I show love to him all throughout the year (even if that love is sometimes just a big heap of leftover scraps, or a photo!). I though it would be great to share a recipe you can make for everyone you love, romantically or otherwise.

Nut-free Lebkuchen

Nut-free Lebkuchen

Chritsmas traditions can make all the difference when it comes to feeling festive. As I already mentioned in my Pepparkakor post, eating the right food at Christmas is really important to my family, as I’m sure it is to yours. The turkey is less important than the roast parsnips (particularly now I’m vegetarian!) and it’s important to have a Pringles sandwich on cheap white bread on Boxing Day.

Salted Cardamon Rye Shortbread

Fancy layer cakes and lemon cheesecake stuffed with cream are the absolute best, but sometimes I want to bake something quick and substantial with a good savoury edge.  2016-06-03 12.57.34-2
