Top 10 Creative and Unusual Cake Pops
Until recently I have been walking around with my eyes closed to the world. But the good news is now they are very widely open! But this isn’t a religious thing, it is a cake thing! You see I had never heard of a “cake pop” before, but the other day there was a promotion on a “Sweet Treats Cake Pop Maker” in our local supermarket. Well for just a few pounds it was worth a go! So to see what I can make with this little “cake ball” cooker I have decided to find out just what is…
Top 10 Best Cadbury Creme Eggs Cupcakes
“I am so sorry!” I had to say that before anyone kicks off about being on a diet or how their keyboards have broken because of drool between the keys. It is Easter time after all and while it may well be a religious celebration it is also about the day when the kids (and the kids inside us adults) get to eat our own body weight in chocolate. So it is time for those on a diet or owns a “non-drool proof” keyboard to stop reading this post and close the browser, but for the rest of us let the madness commence…
Top 10 Best Cake Roll Recipes
My memories of cooking in school are not good at all. I can clearly remember what I was asked to cook so recoil is not the issue here, the problem is that I am a rubbish, cook! I will never forget the day I was told to make a Swiss Roll. It was looking OK until the moment came to present it to the teacher and mine rolled out in front of him and ended up as straight as a piece of paper again with everyone around me laughing. So if I can’t make a good one myself maybe it is best that I just bring you images of how a “Cake Roll” should look like, and so without further ado I bring you…
Top 10 Best St Patrick’s Day Cupcakes
Today is St. Patrick’s Day and all across the world (But mostly Ireland) people will be celebrating by drinking Guinness and drinking the night away. But as well as all that going on there will be a lot of people who will be having St. Patrick’s day parties! So what better thing to have at a party than cupcakes…
Top 10 Best Icebox Cake Recipes
Don’t get confused here, because this isn’t a blog post about Zebra shaped cakes, it is a dessert cake that people just happen to call “Zebra cakes” (Or Icebox cakes if you are elsewhere in the world) apparently the first ever Zebra cakes where just a slight deviation from a trifle! But I only found out about these the other day when someone posted a picture of one they had made on their Pinterest wall, it looked so amazing it inspired me to do this post! So come with me and grab a dessert spoon because you are going to want to try some of these…
Top 10 Cakes Made With Flakes
Want to know a little bit about me? Well, my favourite colour is black, I am well over 6 ft tall and my favourite chocolate bar is a Cadbury Flake! Now some people might now have heard of it, but the adverts always went like ‘only the crumbliest, flakiest chocolate’ and I love it! But recently I posted an image of a hedgehog cake made entirely of them! So I had to wonder what sorts of cakes people could make with what is essentially the weakest chocolate bar you can buy! After all if you so much as drop one, despite the fact that you have had it in the fridge for a while it will crumble into millions of …
Top 10 Best Hedgehog Cakes
Growing up I always wanted to be a chef, but I had one small, tiny thing stopping me from realising my dream….Fact: I was and still am a rubbish cook! I will literally burn water I am that bad. But there was one thing I did make as a small child that was wonderful, beautiful and made me think I could be the “Le Cordon Bleu” chef I always wanted to be. If only it wasn’t the easiest cake anyone could ever make. It’s kids baking time as I bring you…
Top 10 Recipes and Designs of Kit Kat Cakes
Not so long ago, while at a party for my friend, his girlfriend had decided to make him a cake. Nothing unusual about that you say! We this is not meant to disrespect her in anyway but it was public knowledge that she was a terrible cook. It was always my friend that cooked all the meals and so for her to tell us she had “hand made the cake from scratch” We did not expect much. But what she had made that day was actually a commonly made cake with it’s images going viral whenever a new one was made! Enough of the talk, because it brings me the greatest pleasure to bring you…
