Cake, cake and more cake!

Here is yesterday's carrot cake that I promised to share with you. Unfortunately you can't have any because I took it to work. More than half had gone by the end of playtime and the rest disappeared very quickly at lunchtime! Someone suggested I ought to try the recipe again to see if I could do any better... and they would gladly sample it for me!
While I was doing a cakey post I thought I would share a picture of Meg's Birthday cake. She asked for a Victoria sponge with apple and buttercream filling. I wasn't sure it would work, but it was fine. If I did it again I would add a bit of cinnamon to the buttercream, I think.
Finally here is a slice of coffee and walnut cake. Not everyone's favourite, but I fancied something different. Shall I put the kettle on? Thanks for looking!

  11. Oh my, Oh my, Oh my Sally - COFFEE AND WALNUT CAKE IS MY ABSOLUTE FAVOURITE CAKE! I used to make it regularly years ago but because I couldn't be happy with just one or two pieces I stopped making it. I just can't leave it alone if I have some in the cake tin.

    Your other cakes look delicious too but this one, Ummmmmmmmm!
