Fashion on Friday: Fierce Tartan

tartan3

It was love at first sight; the moment that I saw this dress, I knew that it would have to be mine! That deep green plaid/tartan, the wiggle, the faux fur trim. Could this dress be any more perfect? The Rachel dress is a collaboration between Voodoo Vixen and Chicago Chic Blog. Whilst I was under no illusions that the … Read More

Weekend Bakes: How’s the Healthy Eating Going?

Banana Frosting2

I have been trying soooooo hard to be good since Christmas. I’m not dieting per se, so much as just not eating as much as I would like to… as much as I did over the festive season; everything. I ate everything, constantly. So I’m restoring the equilibrium and not mainlining chocolate for breakfast at the moment. The problem is … Read More

Every once in a while, I get a really interesting cake commission. This was one of them! Anne got in touch to commission a cake for her Birthday party, themed around her favourite film, Moulin Rouge. I was asked to make a corset cake and I became anxious. What are you thinking of when I say ‘corset cake’? Are you thinking … Read More

la la 5

This post contains no spoilers… I’m not that kind of girl. It was a chilly Saturday afternoon in January with nothing better to do than go to the cinema. My idea of heaven! Seriously, I often miss my film student days with the nostalgic lament of a woman who spent hours upon hours, days upon days, with nothing more to do … Read More

Wedding Cake Wednesday: Relaxed Elegance

I maintain that this is the perfect theme for any Wedding in the first week of January. Annie and Frederick wanted their Wedding to feel relaxed but elegant. Their Wedding Cake was tiers of post-festive diet busting Chocolate Mud Cake, Victoria Sponge, and Passionfruit Drizzle. The choice of flavours was intended to reflect their heritage – Victoria Sponge being the … Read More

Remembering David Bowie 2017

One year ago today, we lost an icon. Enough has been said about this and you know how I feel so I thought I would mark today with a little something from Sunday 8th January. I spent the day, that would have been Bowie’s 70th birthday, with friends in the spirit of celebrating our hero. Suffering wildly from the evening before … Read More

I Would Love to Bake a Cake for… Martin Kemp

Happy Monday, you gorgeous lot! I started drafting this post to go up last Monday, as my first post of a new year… then I took a couple of unscheduled days off. Despite proudly asserting that I am never ill due to the adrenalin of self-employment and abject terror that comes with this, Chris got a cold and it kicked my … Read More
