From Russia with Love

Now I know I have been described as 'excitable' by a close friend of mine, but this post has got to be my most exciting yet... Check out these Russian Doll Cakes!!! If this doesn't put a smile on your face, you have a heart of stone!

Among the millions of things that I love like chocolate, music, France, mascarpone cream, baking, art and photography etc etc are books. I am a bookworm. I don't do ebooks, I must have paper and prefer hardback copies whenever possible. I cannot have enough books, let alone too many; in fact when I grow up I want to have a library in my house with books going all around the room & up to the ceiling with a sliding ladder so I can hug them all and maybe have a dedicated librarian to help me look after them... 

Anyways, I often trawl Amazon to see what's out there & on one such occasion, was recommended 'The Birthday Cake Book' by Fiona Cairns, maker of the royal wedding cake. The book has amazing cake ideas & when I saw the Russian dolls I pretty much burst with excitement! 

Now it would be criminal of me not to do a 'how to' post and that will be coming soon. I'm not sure what it looks like from the pictures, but these cakes are pretty fiddly so I need a full post for that one. For now, please enjoy the cuteness and get excited :)

Peace & Love


Update: Here is the link for the 'How To' post :)

  1. Too cute! I hear you on the books. I have the same fetish for books and CDS!!! One day that library will be yours :).


  2. I love them! So know I'm over here if you want a taster. I can swap you for my librarian skills and dewey decimal system! X
