Froggy Bloggy

The Food Group I belong to has a theme of Cupcakes this week so I've done some preparation and a bit of a practise
I began by making a basic sponge mix
The cakes went in the oven.  I made a cuppa while they baked!
Rising nicely
Ready for the freezer!
Now to practise the design.  I iced the cakes with some blue runny icing
Coloured some fondant icing and cut shapes
Coloured some more fondant icing and moulded it into frogs

My work is done
They look good enough to eat!

Christmas Cake 2011

This is the Christmas cake I made at the end of last year.  It looks a very sorry sight now - just a couple of slices left and a scattering of crumbs on the cake board.

Welcome To My Blog

Welcome to my blog.  I shall post my thoughts, ramblings, photo's and anything else I can think of on here randomly.  Who knows what will appear?!!!


I made these cupcakes at Stanley's Store, Bovingdon on Sunday afternoon.  What a little treasure trove this shop is!

Is This The Way To Amaryllis?

The spectacular Amaryllis I was given.  So far it has 3 flowers out and another 4 buds still to bloom.
