|All packaged up ready to go! The labels from Paperchase are fab and I love these little fabric patchwork strawberries!|
|This is such an easy recipe and the banana teamed with the chocolate is just yummy!|
Here is the recipe straight from my mini baking bible!

|Rachel's Chocolate cake decorated with yummy Pocky's which I bought whilst travelling in Hong Kong... Love the different types of Pocky's which can be found there!|
|Edible glitter adorned!|
|And... we got stuck right in! Chocolate heaven!|
I love this recipe and always start with this for a lovely dense chocolate cake with a great balance of flavour. I think the coffee really helps to enhance the chocolate taste!

|The mini cupcakes were baked in teeny silicone molds and then just a simple buttercream icing on top!|

|Happy Diwali to all those celebrating!|
I adore party rings and had this on my list of things to do in a while..... then I suddenly thought... why not add a bit of colour as it just approaching Diwali anyway. A splash of colour and here goes.....my little Bollywood Diva cookies were created! I just used a simple recipe for the biscuits and i'm sure you will have a tried and tesed recipe that works for you... If not, why not check this one out.... I have used this recipe many times in the past and I find the flavour of the mixed spice and cinnamon also gives them a little edge! :-)
|Beautiful fuschia and electric blue to get you in the mood for the party! :-)|
Happy Diwali and a very prosperous new year!
|Happy Diwali to my little adorable girl Maya. |
Lots of love Mummy and Daddy xx

|I just adore how these little sprinkles can add so much colour and fun! This was a cake for a baby shower. I just used a basic sponge and this recipe for the buttercream icing!|
|I am still in love with Belle and Boo and had a special request for these little beauties to be added... I then made some miniature bunting and hey presto! I was really pleased it went down so well! :-)|

|Just for fun... pretty cherry blossom cupcakes with glitter butterflies.|
These were too pretty to eat, but were great fun to make!
The little vanilla sponge cupcakes are topped off with a layer of coloured sugarpaste and decorated with little blossom and butterflies. :-)
| Sweet but delicious as a 'coffee' or espresso cake!|
Moist Vanilla sponge made with a handful of almonds and yogurt layered with a yummy caramel filling..... scrumptious!
|Yummy caramel topping finished with a sprinkling (generous of course!) of chopped nuts..|
150g caramel (can be bought canned)
50g chopped nuts or anything else that takes your fancy!

|Happy Birthday Mum :-)|
My first attempt at covering a cake in sugarpaste - ok, it's not perfect but I had a go!!
This was for Mum's 60th - a yummy almond sponge hidden beneath the little adornments.
|Sugarpaste roses and butterflies with a little sprinkling of edible glitter|

|Whilst travelling in Hong Kong for the past few days, I was slightly overwhelmed with the oh...so ...dinky sweets and yummy scrummy packaging which was on offer in the local 7 11 (YES!?) and City Super stores. My daughter has obviously loved playing with the boxes.. I daren't tell her about the world of goodies inside... surely, she'll work that out soon!|
|Gorgeous little lollipops! :-)|
|Moomin and Minnie metal tins with boiled sweeties... I just want to keep the tins out on display|
|These have got to be my favourite.... Minnie and Mickey chocolate lollipops!|
|...Then I found the cutest stationery! I just wanted to buy everything! :-) Thankfully, it's all so tiny, that you just manage to squeeze in a few more things into the already exploding luggage! :-)|
|Tiny sandwich bags...for super tiny sandwiches! :-) Cute!|
|I love these stickers... and the tic&tac 2 coloured pen!|
|Teeny weeny bows :-)|
