Princess Cakies

Baking for little girls is such fun! This was a birthday cake for my beautiful niece Ellie who turned 3 not too long ago. I'd been dying to try out the ruffle buttercream effect and figured that this was as good a time as any :).

The birthday girl
The cake was made using the Amy Atlas vanilla cake recipe as it's currently my favourite. I've been searching the net to find the recipe online but without success so far, and I'm not sure if it would be wrong for me to put it up myself. So for now you will need to get her book, Sweet Designs for the details (it's definitely worth it!)

My son & Ellie

Happy Birthday to yooooooou!

Watching the children around me grow up makes me realise just how much time is flying. I still can't get my head around the fact that I have two of my own! Just the other day I was a little girl running around eating cake and now I'm a mum with responsibilities! I reckon that your brain stops maturing at around 20 and then you spend the rest of your life watching events unfolding, wondering 'How did that happen?!' 

My niece and nephew
I am making it my goal to savour every day and to embrace this thing called 'getting old'. I love it in fact. As I get older, I get wiser and more in control. I also get to relive my childhood and make beautiful Princess cakies :)

Peace & Love

London 2012!!!

You'd have to be living under a cloud to not know that the greatest show on earth is going down right here in London! I have always loved the Olympic games and was ecstatic when I learned it was coming to our city. Since then we've had terrorist attacks, riots, cynics and skeptics but despite it all, we have produced something amazing.

Going to the boxing!

Sport is one of the great unifiers; something that brings people together and lifts our spirits in a way that defies words and logic. You can't help but wish that the good vibes stay, and that the legacy of the games will be the community spirit and not the economy or new buildings.

I've been lucky enough to go to see two events & the atmosphere at both was electric. Even if you haven't managed to get tickets though there is so much going on in the capital, it's borderline overwhelming! I would encourage everyone and anyone to get down to London & get in the Olympic spirit :)

One last thing, if you weren't able to get tickets then I would recommend getting some for the Paralympics I've got mine and I can't wait!

Peace & Love
