Writer's block

I realise that I haven't been updating this blog as much as I should. Don't worry, I haven't had a baker's block! I've just had so much stuff on for the past two months with GCSEs, family stuff and general charging around England, that I've been crashing whenever I get a moment Anyway, I'll do an update of what you've missed!

I made my first ever gingerbread house! It wasn't perfect but I was pretty proud of my first attempt! Unfortunately it's still sitting on my sideboard untouched as I made it for Christmas and took it to my dad's house but no one wanted to break it. I melted down some clear mints and made cool windows! I used melted white chocolate for a covering of the roof as I ran out of eggs for my royal icing. The royal icing for the gingerbread was quite easy to make but it took a while to set so I had this sort of scaffolding propping up every piece of gingerbread and taking over half my kitchen in the process!

 There's my cat, Casper just chilling in the background....

P.S. Do you like my new blog background? I got bored with the old one...


  1. *cough* my cake *cough* ;D xxx

  2. Your cakes really are fabulouse. Where do you find the time to make them? They look incedable and very time consuming.

  3. Thank you! :) I only make about one a month and usually at the weekend or during holidays.
