Cakes 

 

When I started my 30 at 30 I wasn’t a baker, but I am now! My ‘bake a cake’ challenge has been surprisingly fun. With each cake that I have baked I have got a little more confident, and in only a couple of months I have gone from novice baker to now having a pinterest folder full of recipes, and baking cakes for friends. I plan on keeping this as a hobby and look forward to trying out more new recipes. For now, here are some of my cakes:

Cupcakes, sponge cake with strawberry cream icing and empire biscuits.

These were the empire biscuits I made when I used wine glasses as dough cutters
