The Great Catch Up Post ...

So what have I been up to for the past few months, not blogging that's what! I've got all these lovely ideas that I wanted to put up, so I might just do it in one big post... like a catch up post.

Key Lime Pie:

This was easier than I thought to make, but I think I used the wrong sized tin for it, but it still came out ok, just a little flat and spread out... One to definitely make again!

Speaking of Masterchef...

Here is a link to one of my favourite pages at the moment, the lovely Michel Roux Jnr facial expressions. If you've been watching the programme, you will understand what I mean. I wish someone could make a gif for me, I'd sit and watch all day.... he's just got one of those faces!


Its been a while....

Gosh, where has the time gone, before you know it, you take a bit of time off and its nearly Christmas! I've still been baking mind, just not really blogging about it. Things like The Great British Bakeoff and Masterchef are still my favourites. I'm on Instagram (Angelbar1) so you can follow me there for some delights of what I have been up to...

In the meanwhile, I shall endeavour to return to blogging soon with some updated posts!

Funfetti Pastel Swirl Cake

So I first saw the idea of a swirl cake here and also a funfetti cake here on Sweetapolita's blog. I have to admit, she really makes baking look so easy and I'm fangirling a little..

I really wanted to try something a little different than the usual cupcakes I make. 

This has to be one of my favourite recipes for the cake, I use it all the time for cupcakes, its so simple and easy and quick! Iused the lovely pastel colours of purple, pink and blue... It looks a little like a sunrise. I do like these colours, but next time I might try orange and yellows and do a sunset type look.

Or what colours would you choose for a swirl cake? Let me know.

Pomegranate Cream Macarons

So a while ago, I discovered something amazing called LorAnn oils, flavouring essences. These little beauties open up the possibility for so many things. By mistake I got sent the pomegranate one, but I'm starting to believe it was meant to be. My immediate thought was pomegranate macarons; and this is how these darling macarons came about.
