I’ve been meaning to have a go at making a ‘popcorn’ topping. This is a sponge cake topped with mini marshmallows that have been made to look like popcorn. This looks good on a cupcake too using stripy cases, but I just love these little buckets and I have a baking mould that is exactly the same size, so I can transfer the cake into these. I actually ordered these little buckets by mistake, they are only 5 cm high (I wanted larger ones), but now I’m glad, as I think they are really cute and give you the same amount of cake as a cupcake would.
This week I’m working on a number of Mothers Day cakes for an event that I’m doing soon. This is a ruffle cake topped with a dusky pink rose. It’s the first ruffle cake I’ve made, but I love the romantic look. It’s a rich chocolate sponge with light vanilla buttercream ruffles and smells lovely too.
This is our very cute, but naughty chihuahua, Percy. I followed him around with my camera, at first he was suspicious, but he soon carried on creating chaos as normal. Here he is by the bin (he still can’t reach it despite balancing perfectly on two legs, which he can do for ages),
he loves to steal and hide washing too! and at last a little lie down in a pair of boots.
