To celebrate the announcement of the Tea Party, we have found this WINNER of a cake, by the Kitchen of Carla & Elaine.
Don’t forget, we still need your comments on the Tea Party Post! Tell us what we need to have at the Tea Party!
We’re all about picnics, kids, and this week we’re planning on a feature on where you can go for the best ones (free, of course!) so we thought we’d get you all in the mood with some picnicy cakes! As always, clicky the picky for a link x

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.
Do you have Volcano insurance? Peter Griffin does.
This post is dedicated to everyone who’s stranded, in transit, missing a holiday or just plain covered in ash because Iceland screwed up again. Happy Friday, people! Let’s party like it’s AD 79 x

Here’s a story for you: My Mum always makes my birthday cakes. She makes the best cake. One year when I was young and ungrateful, she spent, literally, hours icing Disney’s Little Mermaid onto cake for my birthday party. When she showed it to me I said, “She looks ugly”. My poor Mum!!! It’s difficult to ice faces onto cakes well, but looking back on photos of my cake my Mum did genuinely do an EXCELLENT job – she wasn’t at all ugly. She was gorgeous infact. And lovingly piped. However, ungrateful infant me was a right biatch about it. I hate myself sometimes.
So, here are some of the internet’s celebrity face cakes. I love them because of the effort and the love (not necessarily what they look like. Some of these are actually ugly.)
Guess whose birthday it is this weekend?!

Did you know that there exist a mythical people among humans. They are paragons of self control, or oddities of peculiar taste. They do exist though, and Doctor Who can’t save the world from them. We have to learn to live with these people who (I can barely bring myself to say it…) Don’t. Eat. Chocolate.
- Good Gravy!
