Baking mad...

Just lately I've spent an awful lot of time in the kitchen.

I've made Regal carrot cake for the Jubilee celebrations,
Queen of Puddings using a National Trust recipe,
Chocolate cake for my Sister's 21st birthday,
Vanilla cookies for the Jubilee picnic
and I made attempted a Lego brick cake for my Brother's 26th birthday!

Phew ... 

.... all are long gone now!

I little reminder about the Jar of Love swap, there is still plenty of time to enter.
The more the merrier!

Have a lovely weekend,

Love Katie

  5. Hi Katie, lovely to meet you, and thank you for visiting my blog. Yours is so pretty! And your cakes look fab - but you are obviously from a talented family, I've been looking at your dad's wood-turning.

    I really enjoy linking up with other Norfolk bloggers. It would be great if, sometime in the future, we could have a little get-together at a cafe perhaps. I read about bloggers elsewhere doing this and they say it's great fun.

    Anyway, doing the following thingy now, catch up with you soon! Lx

  6. Hi Katie,
    You have been busy with all that baking, it all looks so delicious. Your sister must have loved that chocolate cake!
    Have a great weekend.

    I gather from your comment on Lynne's blog that you are in Norfolk as well? Snap! There seem to be a few of us, young and older.

  10. Such wonderful bakes! I think the jar of love swap is brilliant and such a fab idea, I remember those matchbox competitions, it certainly brought back a memory reading that! I am very tempted to take part, but I already have a few swaps on the go- leave it with me, I'm sure I might be ever so swayed xxx
