Hello everyone and Happy Easter! I hope everyone is enjoying this extra long weekend with good company.
Many firsts happened with the making of this tart! It was the first time I have used key limes to making anything, and it was also the first time I used the grill setting on my oven! I can tell you I dithered a substantial amount over the idea before I plucked up enough nerve to slide my 99% done tart under it to brown the meringue but I think it came out splendid! 🙂 Continue reading
As 2017 draws to a close, I hope everyone had a wonderful time celebrating Christmas or just spending time with family and friends over the festive season. I spent the days following up to Christmas making ‘stained glass’ cookies (pictures down below!), pumpkin soup and a bûche de noël (yule log) to share for when family came over for a Christmas dinner. It was quite a bit of work on my behalf, but I do enjoy being busy and making something to be proud of! 🙂
This cake was one of the first cakes I made when I started baking, and remains one of my family’s favourites. As this cake is not too heavy or sweet, it really is a good tea time…or any time cake!
This post is about a month late, but better late than never right?
Another cake that was put together in about 15 minutes after coming home from work- all the sponge layers and cream had been prepared, but I wanted to keep everything as fresh as possible, and that included not assembling the cake overnight.
I made this for my sister’s birthday in December last year, cardboard ‘V’ and all made by yours truly! 🙂
