Hello there lovelies ... its been a few years ... literally ... but its time to bring the blog back... look out.
Its exactly 10yrs ago right now when I was in the US in Chicago for the Wilton Cake course which I had aways wanted to do. That's where I started my first blog on the 2 x week adventure with all the Wiltonites from around the globe.... Quite funny reading back on the days and looking at the pics and have all the cake styles have changed.
Anyway as this little old blog has hit 14,397 views, I thought it might be a good idea to bring it back and see what mischief I can get up to with it.
So lets start off with Captain Obvious ....we all know that 2020 can just sod off, however I will begin with a positive and that's with the birth of baby Beth Einstein to Elea and Kevin in July. This little ray of sunshine has literally bought us all so much love and I adore her. Totally smitten each time I get to give her a cuddle.
None of 2020 has been easy though. There are still way to many of my colleagues out of work, and we lost a beautiful soul who was very close to many of us, to suicide.
Am still trying to grieve and deal with losing our Ed but am just not there yet. This blog is for you Edwina who was always so positive and encouraging with my cakes and generally all aspects of life. None of us truly realised how you were feeling and the pain and for that I will always be very sorry.
You've all seen my giant donut cakes that I have developed... this is just a new take on them... the old school Lamington version... and it was super yummy if I can say so myself. Not quite up to the standard of entering it in the Royal Easer Show up against all the CWA lot but maybe soon ... Enjoy the pics and until next time (which I promise will be not another few years away).
Big Love Fiona x
ps: Be kind to all. We really don't know what crap people have going on behind the scenes in their lives. Life is not all about the instagram pics and facebook posts.
Lovelies - meet Ken Wood who has changed my life. My Scottish David has bought me some incredible cooking gifts over the years but Ken Wood would hands down be the best. Ken Wood and I have been through a couple of tragedies but many many triumphs together. I was hoping he would be pink as I love the colour pink. He's obviously yellow. After our first cake together though, I got over it.
