Spectacular Cake

I’m really sorry I didn’t blog yesterday but I had lots of homework! Yuk…… Next week I’m going to our local Clandestine Cake Club meeting. It’s a great way to share your cakes and meet other people who like to bake, there is probably a club near you so do look at their website (www.clandestinecakeclub). The theme for our meeting is spectacular so my bake this week is a spectacular cake. Pop back on Tuesday to see what I end up baking. Well I’m back……….. It’s been a hard bake this week as I was trying to bake Mary & Paul’s chocolate creation show stopper for our Clandestine Cake Club meet up tonight. Mary & Paul’s cake is a three tiered caked but after three attempts (thats nine cakes) I had to give up. I think I tried something that was a bit toooo advanced for me. So I ended up making a creation of my own which was my victoria sponge covered in a lemon butter icing with a white chocolate collar and topped off with strawberries. I had a great time at the Clandestine Cake Club and perhaps ate toooo much! I’ll be back tomorrow with my bake for the week. See you tomorrow.IMG_9683

Bread

This week I received my lovely new Kenwood mixer that I won back in September when I entered the Clandestine Cake Club’s Cake competition at the Earls Court Road Cake & Bake show. It’s the best thing ever and I love it. As it has a dough hook I’ve decided to try out bread this week.

Dont forget you can bake with me and post your results on my blog. I’ll be back on Tuesday with my results.

Bye for now – Myfy

As you can see from the photograph, I did it……. I made my first loaf of bread which was yummmm and went really well with the corn chowder I made. I used Paul Hollywood’s easy white bread recipe and the best bit was watching the dough rise in the glass bowl with that lovely yeast smell.

Well I’ll be back tomorrow with next weeks challenge. Remember you can bake along with me and post your creations on my blog.

See you tomorrow
