Christmas Cookies


So I’m not the greatest cookie decorator in the world but because Christmas only comes once a year, I wasn’t going to let my lack of skills stop me. Baking at Christmas time to Fairytale of New York playing in the background, is pretty much a tradition at this stage. And Christmas cookies are just one of the many cakes…

Wonderland Cake


My apologies for my awful photo editing skills but I wanted to make a picture that had the bizarreness and dreaminess of Wonderland. Alice in Wonderland is one of my favourite stories ever. As a child I had this big book with thick boards as pages and jigsaws on every second page. It was my favourite. I also had a…

Raspberry and White Chocolate Cupcakes


Good Morning Sunshine! The Earth says Hello! And what a beautiful day it is to bake cakes. Usually I would consider myself an ambitious, experimental baker. I like to have a long planning process thinking of all the wonderful flavours, colours and detail. This sort of baking takes a long time and doesn’t always turn out as planned. However there…

Oreo Stuffed Cookies


This recipe was one of the first I ever posted on my old blog. It is one of my favourite things to bake. Oreo + Cookie = Perfection. It’s like there’s a surprise waiting for you inside. The original creator is from Picky Palate. You can find the recipe HERE.  I find it a little confusing because it uses the american…

The Original Cup-Cake


I saw this idea on pinterest yonks ago  and thought it was so cool. As a big fan of puns I couldn’t miss the chance to make a literal cupcake as oppose to the actual cupcake. I made the cake from a Rachel Allen recipe for “divine chocolate cake” and then moulded some ready-made icing around it, not forgetting the…

Cherquerboard Cookies


Here in Ireland there is a TV show called The Great Irish Bake Off. From what I’ve seen on twitter apparently there is also one in Brittan.  This is possibly one of my favourite-favourite programmes (apart from Grey’s Anatomy). It’s just so darn lovable and edible. I love watching the uber cool cake designs they come up with and then…
