We are Sorry!

Oh dear. We have been terrible bloggers. We have been super busy working. Plus all this sunshine does not a hermit blogger make. However, we shall attempt to get back on track in the next few days and hit you up big time with some posts.

Bare with us! (Did you know if you work for a call centre you’re not allowed to use that phrase! This is incase the person on the other end of the phone (is an idiot) and thinks you want to mate with them. I can’t remember who told me this but it was definately someone who had been for call centre training. How silly.)

(Ps. We don’t want to mate with you, even though we’re sure you’re lovely. Just wanted to clear that up, just incase.)

Cake of the Week #42- Picnic Cakes!

Cake of the week #41 – Engerlaaaand

We’re not English, but you know – good luck and such x

What Pops?!

Summer – the season of (hopefully no) mists and (much) fruitfulness…and lollipops. Yum.

Lollipops are summer on a stick so if you’re planning a garden party in the sunshine why don’t you take some inspiration from the fruity stick of refreshing-ness (new word ahoy!) and serve all your food on sticks!

 

There are many a plus point to food stuffs on sticks but i shall mention only one:

1. It looks awesome

and yes, that is a Daniel Craig ice lolly. Sexy, isn’t it. —>

Cake of the Week #40 – Casanova Memorial Cakes!

Yes, we are quite far from Valentines day love ins, but we’re also on the cusp of wedding season. As sickly sweet as it is, we’ve decided to embrace love cakes this week, in honor of Giacomo Casanova, the legendary Italian stallion who died on this day in 1798.

It’s also a great excuse to put a picture of David Tennant on the blog (Tennant played Casanova in a BBC drama three parter recently) and Kate is always looking for an excuse to put a picture of David Tennant on the Blog. Sigh.

But now to tastier things – cakes! Awesome cupcake with a modern spin – everyone loves cupcakes.

If you like your cakes masculine and subtle, this one is not for you…

 Bet it’s still yum though. Ahhhhhhhhh, and lastly, heart shaped fruit!

Not too many pics this week, because only so much sickening affection can be tolerated in conjunction with sickening amounts of fondant. We shall be back to our usual quirkiness next week, with a healthy dose of scepticism to even this out.
