Every year I always like to make my work colleagues a special cake or cupcakes for their birthday (or when I fancy baking)! It is normally travel themed due to the area I work in.
This year was no different and I made a super funky coloured birthday cake that had a range of colours inside – blue, pink and cream colour. I then covered the it in the best butter icing I think I’ve ever made with my lovely kitchenaid.
For some reason, I’ve been in a baking mood lately – this has ranged from cupcakes to bread. I think it must be the fact it’s starting to get a bit chilly over here makes you want to eat lots of nice warm things and baking reminds me of home!
Below are some pictures of the things I’ve been baking… I have shared most of what I have been baking with work, although the bagels were too good to share!
All I can say is that my flat has been smelling amazing these last few weeks – the time and effort is totally worth it!
My friend from work was very spoilt for his birthday last month – he got two types of cake!
Click through some of the cakes I’ve made made in the past – these have been for birthdays, work functions and just because! I have been on a few decorating course over the last couple of years and hope to put these skills to good use! I hope my cake making and decorating skills improve over time.
I like to go on courses to learn different skills like buttercream piping and working with fondant, which can be found in my blog.
