Swirled Sesame Tea Cake

Let’s be real, its tea weather. Even if you are a coffee person, are you telling me there isn’t a small teeny tiny part of you that actually wants tea? To go along with that wonderful cup of tea you plan to have, I would recommend this amazing tea cake. Its a version of a…

Santa’s Belt Cake

Now, this may look like any other cake. Plain simple red velvet cake. But just you wait. There’s a little surprise inside. Be warned, this cake is massive. MASSIVE! It’s not super easy to make, but it is easy enough. You will need three layers of my red velvet cake and one layer of my…

Googly Eye Mini Cake

So for my last Halloween post, I’ve made a super simple googly eye cake. When I say simple, I mean SIMPLE! This time I tinted the buttercream purple and layered the cake. I used some Halloween colored sprinkles in between each layer. Once you’ve layered the cakes, apply a crumb coat and leave it to…

Black Cat Mini Cake

So just like I did the mummy cake yesterday, I decided to a spooky black cat one. This cake is super simple, all you need is a bit of fondant for the cat. Otherwise its all buttercream. Everything in this cake is basically the same. I tinted the buttercream a bright orange and sprinkled some…

Mummy Mini Cake

In my first year of college, we celebrated Halloween. We all got super excited and planned proper costumes, scary or not. I dressed up as Super Mario, my friend as Rosie the Riveter. We had covered the campus in scary decorations and had planned super fun activities all day. In the evening was the costume…

Jack-O-Lantern Cake

Well, it’s the last day of Halloween, I hope everyone is doing something fun. If you haven’t made something cool for Halloween yet, here’s something you could try. A jack-o-lantern pinata cake.

Devil’s Food Cake

In honor of the birthday of one of my favorite people ever, I thought I would share a cake recipe. I’ve made plenty of devil’s food cakes before, the Betty Crocker one, and I can honestly say that this tastes exactly the same if not better. For the cake: 180g butter 290g sugar 3/4 cup…

Lemon Victoria Sponge

Just like the drizzle cake its something that is perfect for tea. I found the cake a little dense but the whipped cream and lemon curd in the center helps lighten it. For the sponge: 175g butter 175g sugar 175g self-raising flour 1tsp baking powder 1tsp vanilla extract 1 lemon zested (I forgot to show…

Lemon Drizzle Cake

This is a recipe I found in a good food magazine years ago. However I haven’t used that recipe here. I found in that one that some of the ingredients were not available to me. So instead I did a little hunting online and used Mary Berry’s recipe from her book. You may find a…
