I love making cakes and these were the ones I made for the Golden Wedding party at the weekend. The were pretty good, even if I do say so myself.

PTA Cake Sale

Cakes for a school PTA sale. It’s a good way of using up all the toppings in the cupboard!

2016 Project366 (Day 345)

Dinosaur Lumpy Landscape Cake

We had The Little Mister’s birthday party today and his request was a dinosaur birthday cake.

This magnificent creation was pretty simple to make; a couple of slabs of chocolate cake, carved up and stuck together with chocolate buttercream icing, a few Crunchie rocks to add some texture, a bit of glittery lava and a few plastic dinosaurs.

He loved it and is tasted good.

Mummy Win!!!

Mini Christmas Cakes

I made some fab little Christmas cakes for the sale last week.

They looked really effective, tasted delicious and were great sellers!

Charity sale

My Auntie Jenny is a brilliant cook and she makes fantastic chutnies, jams and cakes. Today I went to give her a hand at a sale she was doing to raise funds for the Centre for Cancer Immunology in Southampton.

Her stall looked lovely and she had made a load of beautiful Christmas gift baskets which sold really well.

I have to admit that I love a bit of selling. I feel it triggers my inner Apprentice candidate!

2016 Project366 (Day 261)

Epic CakesThis evening I helped my sister out with organising a quiz for their charity This is Epic.

It was a fantastic evening and we raised lots of money and everyone had a good time.

Of course I was in charge of the cake table… always trust a Le Tissier to sort out the pudding table!

2016 Project366 (Day 237)

The winner

Well I was unceremoniously beaten by Auntie Jen, Auntie Cath and Auntie Josie in the buttermilk class. Auntie Jen won the chutney category and I only got a third for my sweet cake.

However, this delicious Coffee and Walnut cake won the class and beat my sister. Result!

Show baking

Guess what week it is by this photo?

North Show week of course and I have been busy baking!

The year I am entering a Buttermilk, Sweet Cake, Tea Loaf and a Hokey Pokey Coffee and Walnut Cake. I am also entering a Spicy Tomato Chutney and secretly hope to beat The Master chutney maker, my Auntie Jen. Very unlikely though!

As soon as I got home from work today I started baking because it is North Show week!

This year I have entered….

Guernsey Sweet Cake
Guernsey Buttermilk Cake (which has the wrong quantities of vinegar in it!)
Christmas Muffins
Apple and Sultana Muffins
Vanilla and Chocolate Chip Muffins

I have taken them to the tent for judging tomorrow. Only time will tell whether my efforts have been worth it!

Birthday cake

One of my jobs today was to make The Little Miss’ birthday cake. I was going to make a bog standard sponge but decided to ice it with some flowers.

I think it turned out OK although it isn’t very 1-year-old appropriate! I am sure there is plenty of time for cakes where I have to be more creative!
