Getting back on the foodie wagon Category: General

As is becoming habit, its been a long time since I last posted.  I have had my hands slightly full but after our annual holiday in the Highlands and baking for the Zoe’s Place Summer Fair I feel ready to start cooking properly again.  I am also starting to wean Elodie so I think its about time I start again.

I haven’t much foodieness to write about just now (except the discovery of smoked brie – oh my goodness it tasted soooooooo nice) – so I shall share a few recent pictures including Elodie helping herself to my doughballs in Pizza Express :)

Charity Cake Bake Category: General, Other Foodiness

Rolo Cupcakes

My mum kindly offered my services a few weeks back to bake some cakes for the cake stall at the Zoes Place Summer Fete.

It seemed like a great idea at the time, come Saturday evening post-baking it seemed altogether exhausting.  We arrived to set up our stall very last minute, but despite the rush, it was nothing less than a huge success.


Every year Zoe’s have a cake stall & the local Greggs bakers supply them with numerous freebies to sell so we had a front stall of homemade cakes and a side stall of Greggs baked goodies.  I am pleased to say that the homemade cakes sold out quickly & we were left with lots of Greggs muffins and cookies but by the end of the day everything had been eaten.

Between us, we made:

  • 3 sandwich cakes
  • tray of rocky road
  • tray of mars bar rice crispy bake
  • 24 sponge cakes with icing
  • 24 rolo cupcakes
  • chocolate muffins
  • blueberry muffins
  • chocolate cornflake cakes

Cake Stall

We’re not sure of the final figure but it looks like we made just over £200 which will be doubled by my mum’s work, so it was certainly worth an exhausting days baking.
