It was my first time trying this popular form of cupcake decoration... not perfect, but certainly not bad.

I'll have to try it again sometime, but aim to improve of course! 😊

Lemon cupcakes filled with homemade custard and lemon curd with an Italian lemon meringue buttercream πŸ‹πŸ’›

Cheeky Choccy Muffins!

I just want to say, I'm super proud of this photo. I actually put effort into the photography and I think it paid off??

Also. These were freakin' delish!

Hope everyone is keeping warm and dry in this downpour β˜”β€

My buttercream may have started to separate a little (AND I HAVE NO CLUE WHY?!) but I still think this little guy was a cutie! And it tasted delish ❀

Just a wee 6" cake for the flatmate and her brother on his birthday. What better movie snack than a whole cake right? πŸ˜‰

What. How. Why.

Why had no one ever preached unto me the gospel that is lemon bars!

I had never had a lemon bar. I had certainly never made lemon bars. But yesterday I saw the sweet citrus light and can say with joy that I have been convered.

A layer of shortbread with a creamy and oh so tangy eggy lemon goodness on top. 

This is absoloutly going to be made time and time again in my kitchen and I cannot wait to knosh on a slice again! πŸ‹πŸ’›

I keep forgetting to post updates... call it a flaw, or a feature, but I'm still baking away!!

Finally tried making Cinnamon scroll knots. I think these are so simple but just look INCREDIBLE. I love the way a quick chop and braid can bring out such a pretty design!

Also, because I didn't want to mess up the way these presented, I actually injected them with the gooey cream cheese frosting, and that was just 🀀. Surprise cream cheese? Yes please!

Gave myself a little challenge for DnD. The night before our session I messaged each of the players telling them they got to choose what I was baking for the day. 

I've gotten a lot better at time management clearly! Because I managed to crank out... lolly cake, peppermint slice, tan slice, raspberry/white choc/cream cheese muffins and a layered berry and cream jelly (not pictured) AND get to bed at a reasonable hour! 😲

Love baking for friends. Nice to return a little joy to those who make my days brighter ❀🎲

Just a very quick frosting job for the flatmate. She had a cake.... I had frosting.... it would have been rude not to put the two together! (I think this was taken along to a shared lunch at church? All I know is it was thoroughly enjoyed! β›ͺβ€πŸŽ‚)
