Get involved on Facebook!

A quick apology for the lack of posts recently; I've been very busy moving house & as such baking has been somewhat abandoned.
However, I now have a different oven to test-drive, and a rather... interesting new recipe to try out, so rest assured there will be cake in the very near future!

In the meantime, why not pop on over to Facebook and join our group, Ultimate Cake Forum? Just search for it and you'll find us easy enough. You should recognise the Dragon Cake photo ;)
There are a number of members' cake photos to peruse, and a monthly baking event to join in with! This month's theme is pumpkin, so if you have, or are going to bake any pumpkin-related treats before the 15th of November, do stop by and share recipes and photos!

See you soon!

Faerie Cakes

Bolstered by the success of the Dragon Cakes (see previous post) my little mind began wandering around ideas for my next creation.
Quite taken with wings and glitter, and having successfully experimented with colouring the white chocolate cake covering a lovely dusky pink, I naturally made the leap from dragons to fairies (who wouldn't?). FYI food colouring gels work really well for colouring the chocolate without changing the consistency, texture, or taste. Just don't expect strong colours, you won't get them.
Once again I happened to have the perfect excuse to trial these - another birthday, this time of someone who liked pink. So the challenge was set...
