May in Cake...

Huge apologies for the lateness of this post! Sometimes life just gets in the way a bit too much! But as an apology I shall follow this post up with an exclusive recipe blog post! So keep your eyes out for that in, hopefully, the near future! So, onto May...

Step into Spring...

I love the colours of this cake. The perfect Spring time cake to reflect the sunshine we've finally had this month! This cake was a gluten free sponge cake with classic jam filling and vanilla frosting. 

I love this style of buttercream piping, adding the layers and details to create an intricate beautiful design. Check out some of my other similar styled cakes here!

Meringue magic...

Light lemon sponges, filled with zesty lemon curd and topped with a snowy mountain of meringue. Need I say anymore?!

I also had some fun playing around with these meringue kisses. Not sure why I had never made them before, but beginners luck gave me a perfect bake to create a crisp shell with a delightful chewy meringue centre.

Happy Birthday...

The colours, the flavours, the doughnuts. This was a very fun cake to make! The sponge was pistachio and white chocolate with fresh raspberries baked through and layered with raspberry jam! The doughnuts were peanut butter flavoured and layered up on top with plenty more with chocolate, of course!
