Macmillan coffee morning

comments 2

Not long ago, my hairdresser did the Macmillan coffee morning, raising money for cancer patients. I think it’s a lovely gesture and a great way to raise money with friends and family. I couldn’t go to the actual coffee morning because I was at college but I did make cakes for them the night before!


These cupcakes/muffins had a more bread like texture in comparison to the usual but that’s because my weighing scale broke so I literally just guessed the measurements!

Funnily enough, I didn’t do my Spanish homework again, just like last year when I was baking cakes for a sale in school (shown in a previous post)
Time is so cyclical.

Stop hating. Start baking.

I baked before I went back to school as promised!



Now I don’t have a name for this dessert just yet but it’s basically a delight for anyone who loves chocolate.

At the bottom we have a layer of freshly baked brownies. Secondly, a layer of whipped cream and strawberries. The third layer is chocolate cake,
and the topping is chocolate mousse. Definitely one of my favourite desserts I’ve baked!

Well well well. Here we have my first attempt at a red velvet cake. Can I just say, it tasted awful! It all went wrong when I added the food colouring. Blegh. But I still had fun, and that’s what baking is all about OPAH

The great british bake off is back and I am feeling more motivated than ever. Despite my mum banning me from baking cakes in her kitchen, I promise to make a few more cakes before going back to school.

Without a doubt, cupcakes are my favourite. If one goes wrong, you can just eat it and no one will ever know it even existed. Meanwhile, a mistake on any other type of cake tends to be almost impossible to cover up, especially for us amateurs!

I baked these a while ago for a cake sale at school. My Spanish teacher was far from happy when she found out that the reason why I didn't do my homework was because I had been baking cakes all night! When it comes to baking, I have no limits. I go a bit reckless.

‘cake 1’ 2013

My first complex cake was a two tier birthday cake for my little sister – ‘cake 1’. My dad’s love for plain old cakes meant that I rarely got a chance to try out something new, although the inspiration kicked in after hours of watching CAKE BOSS. I no longer wanted to watch and from that moment onwards, I became a baker (before I was just a cake maker). It has been a year since I made ‘cake 1’ and there’s still plenty for me to master before I’m at the same level as BUDDY VALASTRO.
I hope that as this blog flows, my baking skills will improve so much so that my pictures only show my cakes getting better. Having said that, if I do have a baking disaster from this moment onwards, I will not exclude it from my blog. *touching wood that I don’t have a baking disaster from this moment onwards*

Decorating almost always turns into a pivotal situation with me, and you will notice this in my pictures. I just don’t know when to stop! But I’m working on that.
