Birthday Cake for my Mum


For my mum's birthday this year I went for a vanilla sponge smothered with buttercream.  I'm a bit disappointed with the haphazard writing though, will have to keep practising.  Anyways my lovely mother liked it and it tasted a lot better than it looked.  Recipe was from Primrose Bakery.

Shortbread Mushrooms

Got this fantastic idea from Bake It Pretty.  As soon as I had the chance I had to make them. 
Basically you make a up simple shortbread/biscuit mix, I flavoured mine with coconut due to the fact I've had a bottle in my cupboard for ages, rolled into balls place on baking sheets then dip a beer bottle in water then cocoa and press into the balls then bake.  That's it!

World Cup / Birthday Cupcakes

Been a while since me last post, I was away sunning myself in the Caribbean.

As well as the World Cup starting on the 11 June it was also my father's birthday. 

So I celebrated by making World Cupcakes!  They're are 13 countries instead of 32, that would mean eating too many cakes especially after my holiday.  You'll notice I've included Scotland, my dad's birthday wish!

Devil's Food Cake sponge filled and topped with chocolate butter icing.
