Baby Cakes...

Hello there. I have been very busy over the last few days. I have been in the kitchen baking and making away. The smell of cake has been storming its way through the house. There have been so many drooling mouths and growling bellies at the smells. MMMMMMM! It has to be one of the best smells in the world.
Those bellies and mouths remained empty though as the cakes rising steadily were not for us. A friend had asked me to supply some cakes for a baby shower.
How exciting! I don't do cakes very often as the strain causes a lot of back ache and stress on the old hips, but how can you say no to such an exciting occasion? At one point it looked like the little fella was putting a stop to the shower by coming early but thankfully he decided to let Mummy have some cake before his arrival...It is a boy btw hehe!

So without further delay here are the fruits of my labour...

This is the large cake(state the obvious Emma!)
I was really pleased with this and the cupcakes. It isn't very often that I am pleased with my efforts but I like all this lot :)

And of course you wanted to see every picture I took hehe!

All this cake has made me desperate to eat some but Alas! The diet says no! So I guess it is grapes for me.
I hope you are all having a great day.

Happy Friday x
