Amaretti cookies, lovely and chewy in the middle, are so absolutely delicious!! I love almond and can’t resist eating the (whole) batch when they’re still warm 🙊 This was my first attempt and I must make more (for sharing this time) when I’m back in my kitchen! . . . . . . #serendipitybakes #hocsupperclub #hautecuisines #foodblogfeed #vscofoodie #still_life_gallery #food52grams #eeeeeats #vzcomade #thehub_food #thebakefeed #tv_stilllife #f52grams #momentsofmine #epicurious #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #gloobyfood #beautifulcuisines #huffposttaste #buzzfeedfood #thekitchn #buzzfeast #scrumptiouskitchen #vscostyle #tk_captures #lifeandthyme #loveliest4 #myseasonalstory #lovely_squares_1 #serendipitystyling
It’s #worldemojiday today and this is a throwback to one of my favourite captures from my little boy’s birthday last year when I made emoji cupcakes for his party (swipe right to see the all the emoji designs😋😅😬😤😜🤕😊😍😝🙄). They were so much fun and I loved making them - and the one he commissioned for himself always makes me laugh!!!!!! 😆💩 Which one best sums up you?! . . . . . . #serendipitybakes #midweekcakelove #f52grams #thatsdarling #undiscoveredbaker #vzcomade #thebakefeed #bakeandshare #beautifulcuisines #bakeandshare #thebakefeed #foodphotography #huffpostfood #foodblogfeed #eeeeeats #eattheworld #hautecuisines #epicurious #vscocook #huffposttaste #tastespotting #vscofood #foodvsco #f52grams #forkfeed #thekitchn #gloobyfood #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #scrumptiouskitchen
This is one of my favourite shots from my workshop with @bealubas - it makes me want to be back in my kitchen baking a bundt cake!! For the moment, we are in the midst of the French mountains, surrounded by cows and goats, each one with a bell around their necks - we’re getting used to waking up to the sound of the river flowing and tinkly bells all around us :) Happy Tuesday, everyone - hope you’re all having a lovely week 💗 . . . . . . #serendipitybakes #midweekcakelove #hocsupperclub #hautecuisines #foodblogfeed #vscofoodie #still_life_gallery #food52grams #eeeeeats #vzcomade #thehub_food #thebakefeed #tv_stilllife #f52grams #momentsofmine #epicurious #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #gloobyfood #beautifulcuisines #huffposttaste #buzzfeedfood #thekitchn #buzzfeast #scrumptiouskitchen #vscostyle #tk_captures #lifeandthyme #loveliest4 #myseasonalstory #bakeandshare
So we’re off on our holidays and I won’t be baking in my kitchen for the next week or so. But I’m hoping to explore the French countryside and markets and find treasures both to keep and eat! We are staying overnight in the loveliest gîte where the owner and his family have thoroughly spoiled us with the most beautiful home cooked meal of soufflé, tagine and chocolate mousse. We literally cannot move now and are not looking forward to the next 5.5 hrs in the car today! ———————————————————————This is a throwback to the little star anise and blackberry friands that I made for the @rainydaybites @ottolenghi challenge some weeks ago. They were thoroughly delicious and I’ve made a mental note to revisit them as soon as I back to reality and a working kitchen 😊 . . . . . . #serendipitybakes #hocsupperclub #hautecuisines #foodblogfeed #vscofoodie #still_life_gallery #food52grams #eeeeeats #vzcomade #thehub_food #thebakefeed #tv_stilllife #f52grams #epicurious #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #gloobyfood #beautifulcuisines #huffposttaste #buzzfeedfood #vscostyle #cupcakeproject #vscofood #foodvsco #gatherandstyle #serendipitystyling #mycommontable #thetastiest #scrumptiouskitchen #seekinspirecreate
Beautiful summer light cascading through the windows at @theforgebristol last weekend. It was the most gorgeous place to capture wonderful scenes and it lived up to all my expectations having wanted to visit for the longest time. This stunning bundt cake was by the super talented @bealubas and is modelled so beautifully by the lovely @irina.r.georgescu who I finally got to meet having followed her amazing Insta feed for so long 💗 . . . . . . #serendipitybakes #midweekcakelove #hocsupperclub #hautecuisines #foodblogfeed #vscofoodie #still_life_gallery #food52grams #eeeeeats #vzcomade #thehub_food #thebakefeed #tv_stilllife #f52grams #momentsofmine #epicurious #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #gloobyfood #beautifulcuisines #huffposttaste #buzzfeedfood #thekitchn #buzzfeast #scrumptiouskitchen #vscostyle #tk_captures #lifeandthyme #loveliest4 #myseasonalstory #bakeandshare
I had a wonderful hump day break yesterday catching up with the lovely @emilyquinton and fellow @makelight friends at her home. Nothing beats lemonade, cake and conversation in the sunshine as I prepare myself for the midday school finish today where school is out for 8 weeks!!! This was definitely the calm before the storm 😆 . . . . . . #serendipitybakes #momentsofmine #inspiredbypetals #loveliest4 #inspiredbynature_ #onepurlrowglow #still_life_gallery #myseasonalstory #signsofspring #botanicaldaydreams #mybeautifulsimplicity #lovely_squares_1 #flowersandotherstories #savourtheseason #mycolsiemoment #persuepretty #ofsimplethings #tv_stilllife #click_dynamic #seekthesimplicity #petalsandprops #seeingthepretty #mymomentwithflowers #sgiew
Hi everyone! Sorry it’s been a while :) So if you missed my Stories at the weekend and I showed you this photo, could you guess whose workshop I went to?! That’s right, the fabulous @bealubas at the @theforgebristol 💗 Not only is she an awesome photographer but she’s actually a brilliant baker too and after we got to photograph lots of her delicious bakes, we then got to eat them too!! Such a fun day with so much to learn :) . . . . . . #serendipitybakes #midweekcakelove #hocsupperclub #hautecuisines #foodblogfeed #vscofoodie #still_life_gallery #food52grams #eeeeeats #vzcomade #thehub_food #thebakefeed #tv_stilllife #f52grams #momentsofmine #epicurious #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #gloobyfood #beautifulcuisines #huffposttaste #buzzfeedfood #thekitchn #buzzfeast #scrumptiouskitchen #vscostyle #tk_captures #lifeandthyme #loveliest4 #myseasonalstory #bakeandshare
Revision + mammoth baking session + food shopping + two little munchkins to look after + one zillion chores to get through today. Chilling in bed right now contemplating it all and wishing I had some of these mini almond croissants I made for breakfast a few weeks back. I think they may need to feature again for breakfast this week as a reward to get us through!! Time to kickstart the day 😆 . . . . . . #serendipitybakes #hocsupperclub #hautecuisines #foodblogfeed #vscofoodie #still_life_gallery #food52grams #eeeeeats #vzcomade #thehub_food #thebakefeed #tv_stilllife #f52grams #epicurious #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #gloobyfood #beautifulcuisines #huffposttaste #buzzfeedfood #vscostyle #cupcakeproject #vscofood #foodvsco #gatherandstyle #serendipitystyling #mycommontable #thetastiest #scrumptiouskitchen #seekinspirecreate
I’m so glad that peony season has arrived but have developed a crush on ranunculus over the last few months. It won’t knock peonies off their top spot but I do love this lovely pink prettiness coupled with gypsy’s breath 💗 A calming start for revision week in our house!! . . . . . . #serendipitybakes #momentsofmine #inspiredbypetals #loveliest4 #inspiredbynature_ #onepurlrowglow #still_life_gallery #myseasonalstory #signsofspring #botanicaldaydreams #mybeautifulsimplicity #lovely_squares_1 #flowersandotherstories #savourtheseason #mycolsiemoment #persuepretty #ofsimplethings #tv_stilllife #click_dynamic #seekthesimplicity #petalsandprops #seeingthepretty #mymomentwithflowers #sgiew
This weekend has surprised us with its glorious weather after a very gloomy forecast and we’re enjoying being out of London in the countryside with family and friends - we’re even off for a picnic today if the rain holds off!! We’re also celebrating the long weekend with a few home bakes including the Take-Home Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Ganache from Sweet by @ottolenghi and @helen_goh_bakes which is the latest #rainydaybitescookbookclub recipe challenge from @rainydaybites 💗 A delicious fudgy chocolate cake crowned with a beautiful dark chocolate ganache. When Sweet was chosen for this month’s recipe challenges I did think the the recipes would be complicated with a long list of ingredients, but in fact it has been quite the opposite and they have been a joy to make. If you’d like to see how the rest of the club have created their own delicious chocolate cakes, I’ve shared them below - it’s always fun to see different people’s interpretation of the same recipe!! ————————————————— @baileybakesalot @krisglomb @serendipitybakes @feedingmy3sons @naomiscookbookchallenge @onelifetobake @huongstar @rainydaybites @lesliejarrett @horneandoalgo @ccculinista @lialemonandvanilla @ktdcarla @dublingirl57 @somethingsweetsomethingsavoury @dailywaffle @oompahgrl @greedyinmontreal @theoliveandmango @thecookbooknerd @bakedinchicago @thelemonapron @eglese . . . . . . #serendipitybakes #hocsupperclub #hautecuisines #foodblogfeed #vscofoodie #still_life_gallery #food52grams #eeeeeats #vzcomade #thehub_food #thebakefeed #tv_stilllife #f52grams #momentsofmine #epicurious #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #gloobyfood #beautifulcuisines #huffposttaste #buzzfeedfood #thekitchn #buzzfeast #scrumptiouskitchen #vscostyle #tk_captures #lifeandthyme #loveliest4 #myseasonalstory #bakeandshare
I’ve never been so happy to see a bank holiday weekend arrive!! Our weekends are crammed with clubs and activities for the boys and then when the holidays come, it’s time to escape from London and enjoy family time with no alarm clocks or schedules. I wish I’d appreciated this more when the boys were little!!!! Here’s another capture of the most delicious blackberry and star anise friands I made for the @rainydaybites #rainydaybitescookbookclub challenge a couple of weeks ago. They were so delicious and that pink glaze was heavenly 💕 There’s another challenge coming tomorrow and I can’t wait to share my latest bake from Sweet by @ottolenghi and @helen_goh_bakes xo *Spoiler Alert* it’s another keeper! 😍 . . . . . . #serendipitybakes #hocsupperclub #hautecuisines #foodblogfeed #vscofoodie #still_life_gallery #food52grams #eeeeeats #vzcomade #thehub_food #thebakefeed #tv_stilllife #f52grams #epicurious #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #gloobyfood #beautifulcuisines #huffposttaste #buzzfeedfood #vscostyle #cupcakeproject #vscofood #foodvsco #gatherandstyle #serendipitystyling #mycommontable #thetastiest #scrumptiouskitchen #seekinspirecreate
Is it the weekend yet?! Roll on half term (even though it does mean a week of revision 😬) I had off cuts from a chocolate truffle cake that I made so decided to turn them into delicious chocolate cake truffles encased in dark chocolate. Totally rich and decadent! They made the perfect sweet treat to take to a recent dinner party 💕 . . . . . . #serendipitybakes #hocsupperclub #hautecuisines #foodblogfeed #vscofoodie #still_life_gallery #food52grams #eeeeeats #vzcomade #thehub_food #thebakefeed #tv_stilllife #f52grams #epicurious #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #gloobyfood #beautifulcuisines #huffposttaste #buzzfeedfood #vscostyle #cakestagram #vscofood #foodvsco #forkfeed #gatherandstyle #serendipitystyling #mycommontable #thetastiest #scrumptiouskitchen #seekinspirecreate
I made this cake for my friend’s lovely mum who celebrated her birthday with them a few days ago. One of my favourite flavour combinations, this is a lemon cake soaked with fresh lemon sugar syrup and layered with raspberry Swiss meringue buttercream and fresh raspberries. I love the pink shades! And I couldn’t resist some homemade raspberry macarons, meringue kisses and beautiful roses 💗 . . . . . . #serendipitybakes #hocsupperclub #hautecuisines #foodblogfeed #vscofoodie #still_life_gallery #food52grams #eeeeeats #vzcomade #thehub_food #thebakefeed #tv_stilllife #f52grams #epicurious #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #gloobyfood #beautifulcuisines #huffposttaste #buzzfeedfood #vscostyle #midweekcakelove #vscofood #foodvsco #forkfeed #gatherandstyle #serendipitystyling #mycommontable #thetastiest #scrumptiouskitchen #seekinspirecreate
Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend 💗 Starting my week with these little pistachio & lime cakes topped with coconut yoghurt and roasted rosewater strawberries. Gluten free and very delicious!!

It’s been a quiet week with my littlest off on his very first residential camp with school (7 years old!!!) and although I’ve missed him a lot, the house has been very peaceful and calm without my boys fighting!! But he’s back now and I’m looking forward to a lovely weekend with family and friends. I know I’m slightly addicted to friands but I couldn’t miss out on joining the #rainydaybitescookbookclub recipe challenge from @rainydaybites and making the delicious Blackberry & Star Anise Friands from Sweet by @ottolenghi and @helen_goh_bakes I’ve never been a fan of star anise even thought I think it looks so beautiful but I actually loved the flavour with the blackberries in these little cakes. I’m not sure I’m a convert to the liquorice taste but I would definitely make these again with star anise. And have you seen the beautiful colour of the sticky icing? I love how fruit juice can create the most beautiful natural palette. You can leave off the sweet icing but I really wouldn’t recommend it as they transform the friands into something very special! 💗 To see more of the accounts joining in with the friand love, click on my photo above 😋 #serendipitybakes #hocsupperclub #hautecuisines #foodblogfeed #vscofoodie #still_life_gallery #food52grams #eeeeeats #vzcomade #thehub_food #thebakefeed #tv_stilllife #f52grams #momentsofmine #epicurious #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #gloobyfood #beautifulcuisines #huffposttaste #buzzfeedfood #thekitchn #buzzfeast #scrumptiouskitchen #vscostyle #tk_captures #lifeandthyme #loveliest4 #myseasonalstory #bakeandshare
After a totally wonderful supper club with @wearecookandbaker a couple of weeks ago, we were treated to goody bags with delicious *amstaretti* cookies from @_elise_henry_ 😍 They were seriously good and well worth checking out - crispy on the outside and lovely and chewy in the middle, they were the perfect amaretti cookies :) I decided to make some of my own, but the only problem when you make a batch of them is they are too delicious that you want to eat them ALL!! And I did 🙊 . . . . . . #serendipitybakes #hocsupperclub #hautecuisines #foodblogfeed #vscofoodie #still_life_gallery #food52grams #eeeeeats #vzcomade #thehub_food #thebakefeed #tv_stilllife #f52grams #momentsofmine #epicurious #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #gloobyfood #beautifulcuisines #huffposttaste #buzzfeedfood #thekitchn #buzzfeast #scrumptiouskitchen #vscostyle #tk_captures #lifeandthyme #loveliest4 #myseasonalstory #lovely_squares_1 #serendipitystyling
Last week I went to the @anthropologie book launch for @skyemcalpine and her beautiful new book #atableinvenice which was a really lovely event. She talked about her life growing up in Venice and the importance of opening up her home and welcoming friends and family to sit around her dinner table and spend time making memories over good food and drink. I asked her which recipes we should make first from her book and these little almond croissants were in her Top 3. They’re very easy to make and I just love the beautiful almond paste in the middle - they make the perfect breakfast and they seem to be a hit with the boys too! What a lovely midweek treat 💗 . . . . . . #serendipitybakes #hocsupperclub #morningslikethese #gatheringslikethese #thehappynow #verilymoment #lifeandthyme #pursuepretty #darlingmovement #feelfreefeed #still_life_gallery #abmlifeissweet #thetastiest #hautecuisines #foodblogfeed #food52grams #vzcomade #thehub_food #thebakefeed #f52grams #epicurious #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #gloobyfood #beautifulcuisines #huffposttaste #buzzfeedfood #mycommontable #scrumptiouskitchen #seekinspirecreate
One of the treats I bake most of all has to be friands. Not only are they incredibly easy to make, but they taste absolutely delicious and the whole family adores them. I found some blueberry powder at Borough Market a couple of weeks ago and had high hopes that by adding this to my friands they’d be a beautiful blue-purple colour. Sadly not. But they’ve created a sort of moody dark look inside which I LOVE against the bright red raspberries and that little hint of blueberries is so delicious. The perfect treat for when you’ve come back in from a very wet and rainy walk with the pupster 🐶 . . . . . . #serendipitybakes #hocsupperclub #hautecuisines #foodblogfeed #vscofoodie #still_life_gallery #food52grams #eeeeeats #vzcomade #thehub_food #thebakefeed #tv_stilllife #f52grams #epicurious #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #gloobyfood #beautifulcuisines #huffposttaste #buzzfeedfood #vscostyle #cupcakeproject #vscofood #foodvsco #forkfeed #gatherandstyle #serendipitystyling #mycommontable #thetastiest #scrumptiouskitchen #seekinspirecreate
Happy to have the family back together again this weekend and we celebrated with this mini chocolate truffle cake filled and covered with deliciously light mascarpone frosting. I love miniature cakes and they are best kind of portion control in a sweet loving household!!

I am such a magpie for cookery books and quite a few have fluttered through my letterbox in the last few weeks! I was drawn to one that I saw in a gift shop locally some weeks ago and I am feeling so inspired by all the amazing, healthy recipes within. @thebeautychef has created a magical book and I have a number of her recipes on the go, but this is the first one I wanted to share. Little pistachio & lime cakes topped with coconut yoghurt and roasted rosewater strawberries. Think friands but with added pistachios as well as ground almonds. I love the zinginess of the lime in them and they are melt in mouth soft and delicious. Rosewater is not one of my favourite flavours but it just seems to pair magically with the strawberries roasted in honey and lime juice. And how pretty they look too!! . . . . . . #serendipitybakes #midweekcakelove #myseasonalflatlay #huffpostaste #homebaker #sweetcuisines #firstweeat #foodfluffer #foodstyling #foodphotoinsta #foodphotography #onmytable #gatheredstyle #petalsandprops #thebakefeed #scrumptiouskitchen #tastingtable #mycommontable #eatprettythings #abmfoodie #makeitdelicious #hautecuisines #frommykitchen #heresmyfood #food52 #foodandflowers #heitermoments #thebeautychef #sweetcuisines #simpleandsweet
Yay, it’s Friday which means my little boy is back from his school camp today!! Our house has been a very peaceful place (no sibling rivalry for 4 days!) but we’ve missed him lots. I’ve so much to do today but can’t resist starting the day calmly with a cup of tea and a honey madeleine 💕 . . . . . . #serendipitybakes #hocsupperclub #hautecuisines #foodblogfeed #vscofoodie #still_life_gallery #food52grams #eeeeeats #vzcomade #thehub_food #thebakefeed #tv_stilllife #f52grams #epicurious #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #gloobyfood #beautifulcuisines #huffposttaste #buzzfeedfood #buzzfeast #vscostyle #cupcakeproject #vscofood #foodvsco #forkfeed #makedeliciouslight #midweekcakelove #gatherandstyle #foodandfaffing #mycommontable
My eldest is away at PGL this week and last night my littlest and I found ourselves having dinner alone together which is a rare occurrence. He’d asked for chicken kiev as a treat and I’d also seen some delicious strawberries when I was grocery shopping so we made this strawberry tarte tartin in my mini skillet which was just perfect for two. Topped with coconut yoghurt and some toasted pistachios it was delicious. Honestly, I don’t need any excuses to whip out the mini skillet as I think it makes everything super cute!! . . . . . . #serendipitybakes #hocsupperclub #hautecuisines #foodblogfeed #vscofoodie #still_life_gallery #food52grams #eeeeeats #vzcomade #thehub_food #thebakefeed #tv_stilllife #f52grams #epicurious #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #gloobyfood #beautifulcuisines #huffposttaste #buzzfeedfood #buzzfeast #vscostyle #StrawberriesAreTheJam #vscofood #foodvsco #forkfeed #undiscovered_bakers #bakeandshare #gatherandstyle #buzzfeed #mycommontable
I was so delighted to find blood oranges in our local supermarket that I bought two bags. They’re absolutely delicious and this was the first thing I made with them. I decided to be kind and not add vodka so I can share it with my boys ☺️ Wishing the sunshine hadn’t done a vanishing act this week though as it would be perfect for a hot day! . . . . . . . #serendipitybakes #onmytable #hocsupperclub #hautecuisines #foodblogfeed #vscofoodie #still_life_gallery #food52grams #eeeeeats #vzcomade #thehub_food #thebakefeed #tv_stilllife #f52grams #epicurious #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #gloobyfood #beautifulcuisines #huffposttaste #buzzfeedfood #vscostyle #vscofood #foodvsco #forkfeed #inspiredbynature_ #gatherandstyle #serendipitystyling #mycommontable
Yay, it’s Friday, the sun is shining and I’m excited to be heading off to Windsor today to meet lots of lovely @makelight friends 💗 There will be lots of walking and hopefully lots of cake!

Oh springtime, where are you? More rainy days, drizzle and grey skies here in London. Despite the weather, we’re having so much fun with sports camps and house guests and are off into London for a wonderful birthday dinner for my sister-in-law tonight. It’s not leaving much time for baking but we’re enjoying spending lots of time with friends and family 💗 Here’s another shot of the lemon and poppyseed cake I made with the acai drizzle - wishing there was a slice for me right now! . . . . . . #serendipitybakes #midweekcakelove #hocsupperclub #hautecuisines #foodblogfeed #vscofoodie #still_life_gallery #food52grams #eeeeeats #vzcomade #thehub_food #thebakefeed #tv_stilllife #f52grams #epicurious #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #gloobyfood #beautifulcuisines #huffposttaste #buzzfeedfood #vscostyle #cupcakeproject #vscofood #foodvsco #forkfeed #lovely_squares_1 #inspiredbynature_ #gatherandstyle #serendipitystyling #mycommontable
We had one of those days when we woke up and cake was the first thing on our minds. My little boy said, “Can we make a lemon drizzle cake today?” This is the one flavour that’s an all time favourite in our house and a rarity where we all love the same thing. This lemon cake has the softest and lightest sponge and was heavenly warm from the oven with the crunchy lemon icing. It had barely been out of the oven five minutes before there was a intent huddle around it and demands to dish it out immediately. Totally delicious and the perfect remedy for a rainy day! . . . . . . . #serendipitybakes #hocsupperclub #hautecuisines #foodblogfeed #vscofoodie #still_life_gallery #food52grams #eeeeeats #vzcomade #thehub_food #thebakefeed #tv_stilllife #f52grams #epicurious #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #gloobyfood #beautifulcuisines #huffposttaste #buzzfeedfood #buzzfeast #scrumptiouskitchen #vscostyle #tk_captures #lifeandthyme #loveliest4 #myseasonalstory #lovely_squares_1 #gatheringandstyling #inspiredbynature_ #serendipitystyling
I’m so delighted to have a day with no rain or heavy snow and there’s even a little sunshine peeping through the clouds! Back in London and still trying to dry out my Mac - my camera will need some serious repairs ☹️ But the sun is shining and we’re glad to be home! Here are some little hand painted bunny cookies to celebrate the fact the springtime seems to be finally making an appearance 🌸🌸🌸 . . . . . . #serendipitybakes #hocsupperclub #hautecuisines #foodblogfeed #vscofoodie #still_life_gallery #food52grams #eeeeeats #vzcomade #thehub_food #thebakefeed #tv_stilllife #f52grams #momentsofmine #epicurious #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #gloobyfood #beautifulcuisines #huffposttaste #buzzfeedfood #thekitchn #buzzfeast #scrumptiouskitchen #vscostyle #tk_captures #lifeandthyme #myseasonalstory #serendipitystyling #gatheringandstyling
When I was little there were traditional things that I’d bake and make with my mum. We would often make chocolate holly leaves to go on chocolate mousse whenever they had dinner parties (well, it was the 80’s!!!!) and many of them made their way into my mouth rather than onto the mousse! When I made this chocolate cheesecake, I couldn’t resist chocolate leaves on top so used Japanese acacia leaves from our neighbour’s tree overhanging into our little garden. They were a bit tricky to release but I love the shape of their leaves and must admit that they do make me feel quite nostalgic! ✨✨ . . . . . . #serendipitybakes #hocsupperclub #hautecuisines #foodblogfeed #vscofoodie #still_life_gallery #food52grams #eeeeeats #vzcomade #thehub_food #thebakefeed #tv_stilllife #f52grams #epicurious #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #gloobyfood #beautifulcuisines #huffposttaste #buzzfeedfood #buzzfeast #vscostyle #cupcakeproject #vscofood #foodvsco #forkfeed #makedeliciouslight #midweekcakelove #gatherandstyle #foodandfaffing #mycommontable
Helllooo! Hope you’ve all had an amazing Easter and are loving it finally being springtime (if only the pesky British weather would play along now!) We‘ve arrived back from snowy Avoriaz where we had a wonderful time skiing and snowboarding (it was my boys’ first time and they did brilliantly ⛷) On the way back I managed to upend a bottle of water all over my Mac, phone and camera and none of them are working properly now, so taking food photos might be a bit trickier for a little while! But I wanted to share this little frangipane tart I made with a pâte sablée base, filled with frangipane and topped with poached rhubarb. It was a little fiddly to make but tastes divine and is well worth the extra effort!! Looking forward to catching up with you all now I’m back 💕 . . . . . . #serendipitybakes #hocsupperclub #hautecuisines #foodblogfeed #vscofoodie #still_life_gallery #food52grams #eeeeeats #vzcomade #thehub_food #thebakefeed #tv_stilllife #f52grams #epicurious #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #gloobyfood #beautifulcuisines #huffposttaste #buzzfeedfood #buzzfeast #vscostyle #rhubarb #vscofood #foodvsco #forkfeed #undiscovered_bakers #bakeandshare #gatherandstyle #buzzfeed #mycommontable
An impromptu playdate called for me scouring my cupboards looking for ingredients for a sweet treat to take with us. A carton of egg whites in the fridge and some blood oranges in the fruit bowl inspired me to make some blood orange friands. I do love these little almonds cakes and they were delicious drizzled with sweet, sticky blood orange icing and a grating of zest over the top 😍 . . . . . . #serendipitybakes #hocsupperclub #hautecuisines #foodblogfeed #vscofoodie #still_life_gallery #food52grams #eeeeeats #vzcomade #thehub_food #thebakefeed #tv_stilllife #f52grams #epicurious #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #gloobyfood #beautifulcuisines #huffposttaste #buzzfeedfood #buzzfeast #vscostyle #cupcakeproject #vscofood #foodvsco #forkfeed #undiscovered_bakers #bakeandshare #gatherandstyle #buzzfeed #mycommontable
So this is how the lemon and poppyseed cake in my new vintage tin turned out. It was absolutely delicious! My youngest begged me not to put poppy seeds in (he has an aversion to herbs and seeds!) but then scoffed the lot and they do add a really lovely crunchy texture to a lemon cake. I couldn’t find blueberry powder anywhere for the icing so used açai instead and I think the purple hue is so pretty and has a delicious sweetness. Happy Monday, everyone! Hope you have a fun week ahead 😍 ———————————— Recipe by @linda_lomelino . . . . . . #serendipitybakes #hocsupperclub #hautecuisines #foodblogfeed #vscofoodie #still_life_gallery #food52grams #eeeeeats #vzcomade #thehub_food #thebakefeed #tv_stilllife #f52grams #epicurious #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #gloobyfood #beautifulcuisines #huffposttaste #buzzfeedfood #buzzfeast #vscostyle #cupcakeproject #vscofood #foodvsco #forkfeed #undiscovered_bakers #bakeandshare #gatherandstyle #buzzfeed #mycommontable
It’s so cold outside. There’s not too much snow but there’s a biting wind. I’m hoping our flowers in the garden, just starting to bloom, will survive. All our sports fixtures have been cancelled for the day so we have one birthday party and a free day. The snow is definitely good for some things!! ❄️ . . . . . . . #serendipitybakes #momentsofmine #inspiredbypetals #loveliest4 #inspiredbynature_ #onepurlrowglow #still_life_gallery #myseasonalstory #signsofspring #botanicaldaydreams #mybeautifulsimplicity #lovely_squares_1 #flowersandotherstories #savourtheseason #mycolsiemoment #persuepretty #ofsimplethings #tv_stilllife #click_dynamic #seekthesimplicity #petalsandprops #seeingthepretty #mymomentwithflowers #sgiew
I made a batch of these chocolate brownies a few days ago for a workshop I was going to and it reminded me how much I love eating them! They have a truffle-like texture in the middle and I like to eat them straight from the fridge. They’re very rich so I always cut them into small squares and they make the perfect bite-size pud - and you can always help yourself to another one!! 😍 ———————————— If you’d like the recipe, search for *Ultimate Chocolate Brownies* under the Recipe tab on my website (link in my profile) . . . . . . #serendipitybakes #chocolateloversclub #chocolaholic #hocsupperclub #hautecuisines #foodblogfeed #vscofoodie #still_life_gallery #food52grams #eeeeeats #vzcomade #thehub_food #thebakefeed #tv_stilllife #f52grams #epicurious #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #gloobyfood #beautifulcuisines #huffposttaste #buzzfeedfood #buzzfeast #vscostyle #cupcakeproject #vscofood #foodvsco #forkfeed #undiscovered_bakers #bakeandshare #buzzfeed
I went to @sunburyantiques market a couple of weeks ago and found a vintage French brioche tin. It really has such a pretty shape so I decided to bake a lemon and poppy seed cake from @linda_lomelino 💛 It’s been soaked with fresh lemon syrup and is waiting for its icing and the smell throughout my kitchen was so incredible I could have eaten it all then and there!! It’s perfect as a midweek treat when you’re on the cusp of the weekend 🍋 . . . . . . #serendipitybakes #midweekcakelove #hocsupperclub #hautecuisines #foodblogfeed #vscofoodie #still_life_gallery #food52grams #eeeeeats #vzcomade #thehub_food #thebakefeed #tv_stilllife #f52grams #epicurious #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #gloobyfood #beautifulcuisines #huffposttaste #buzzfeedfood #buzzfeast #scrumptiouskitchen #vscostyle #tk_captures #lifeandthyme #cupcakeproject #myseasonalstory #theartofplating #gatheringandstyling #inspiredbynature_
This is my perfect way to start a week - with delicious raspberry friands and a cup of hibiscus tea. We have only two weeks left of school before I have four weeks of holidays with my boys. I can’t wait to have this time with them but I also have fun plans for the next two weeks when I have a little more time on my hands! So this morning I’m taking a little time to make a list of everything I need to do (and I think I’m a fan of making lists mostly because I love ticking things off them!) So I’m wishing myself a productive morning and you all the happiest of Mondays 💗 . . . . . . #serendipitybakes #hocsupperclub #hautecuisines #foodblogfeed #vscofoodie #still_life_gallery #food52grams #eeeeeats #vzcomade #thehub_food #thebakefeed #tv_stilllife #f52grams #momentsofmine #epicurious #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #gloobyfood #beautifulcuisines #huffposttaste #buzzfeedfood #thekitchn #buzzfeast #scrumptiouskitchen #vscostyle #tk_captures #lifeandthyme #loveliest4 #myseasonalstory #lovely_squares_1
Happy Mother’s Day!! It’s a slightly dark and dismal day here but I’ve had balloons and cards and have been banished to bed whilst my boys set up a lovely surprise breakfast downstairs 💗 I finally made it to @petershamnurseries this week following a fun doggy playdate in Richmond Park and had a lovely lunch and catch-up with @sugarplumbakeskingston and @graceandflora 💕 It’s all so pretty there and I wanted to buy practically everything so have definite plans to go back. I‘ve put some more photos onto Stories today but this was one of my favourites right at the very entrance 💕 Wishing you all a wonderful Sunday and enjoy all your celebrations today xo . . . . . . #serendipitybakes #momentsofmine #inspiredbypetals #loveliest4 #inspiredbynature_ #onepurlrowglow #still_life_gallery #myseasonalstory #signsofspring #botanicaldaydreams #mybeautifulsimplicity #lovely_squares_1 #flowersandotherstories #savourtheseason #mycolsiemoment #persuepretty #ofsimplethings #tv_stilllife #click_dynamic #seekthesimplicity #petalsandprops #seeingthepretty #mymomentwithflowers #sgiew
Mmmm so happy I have more of this cookie dough in my fridge for the weekend and I love how popular it will make me with my boys! Salted Butter and Chocolate Chunk Shortbread cookies are the new craze and they are delicious 😍 Can you see the edges of the cookies glistening? That’s because they’re brushed with egg wash and rolled in Demerara sugar before baking giving a very yummy crunch to them. And they have a little sprinkling of sea salt on the surface which I always love with dark chocolate cookies. We have a weekend with friends and good food ahead of us which is always the best kind 💗 Have a good one too xo —————————————— Recipe by @alisoneroman . . . . . . #serendipitybakes #hocsupperclub #hautecuisines #foodblogfeed #vscofoodie #still_life_gallery #food52grams #eeeeeats #vzcomade #thehub_food #thebakefeed #tv_stilllife #f52grams #momentsofmine #epicurious #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #gloobyfood #beautifulcuisines #huffposttaste #buzzfeedfood #thekitchn #buzzfeast #scrumptiouskitchen #vscostyle #tk_captures #lifeandthyme #myseasonalstory #serendipitystyling #gatheringandstyling
I know I’m late in the game trying these delicious Salted Butter and Chocolate Chunk Shortbread cookies that have taken the Internet by storm. I’ve read lots of mixed reviews on them but they really are very tasty and not as difficult to make as some people would have you believe. I did a few things a little differently which maybe made it easier for me. I made the dough and left it in the fridge for a couple of days which meant my cookie log was easier to cut. They did crumble a little but I just pushed them back together. And I did refrigerate them in their rounds before putting the egg wash and Demerara sugar on the outside right before baking. I baked them for a little longer than the stated time but I always like to eyeball bakes to make sure they’re cooked as you never know what the other person’s oven is like. And you know what? They were perfect and very delicious 😍 I have more refrigerated rounds in the fridge ready to bake this weekend and my boys can’t wait!!

There are always certain birthday cakes that are the most popular and Bob The Minion is up there as one of the favourites!! I do love the bright colours and the movies are always such fun and I have to say that Bob is my favourite Minion too 💛 I think they’re such a wonderful centrepiece for a children’s party and it always surprises me how keen the kids are to eat him!!!! Although it is chocolate cake and chocolate ganache buttercream inside so maybe not so much of a surprise 😍 . . . . . . #serendipitybakes #cupcakeproject #vscofood #foodvsco #f52grams #lifeandthyme #bakeitforward #undiscovered_bakers #eeeeeats #thebakefeed #gloobyfood #vzcomade #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #bakingwithlove #scrumptiouskitchen #cakeinspiration #beautifulcuisines #cakeporm #huffposttaste #thebakefeed #bakeandshare #spoonfeed #buzzfeed #sugarart #cakesinstyle #prettycreativestyle #cakestagram #serendipitystyling #tk_captures
I saw this recipe at the weekend and couldn’t wait to make such a lovely loaf cake! You know when some recipes just grab you like that? I think it was the beautiful raspberries crushed into the sweet icing and that gorgeous colour on top. The cake is a raspberry yoghurt loaf flavoured with lemon and vanilla and two layers of raspberries embedded into the middle. The recipe says it’s best eaten the day it’s made because the raspberries in the icing will spoil - well there’s certainly no danger of leftovers in this house! Double thumbs up for this cake 😍 —————————————— Recipe: @dianahenryfood . . . . . . #serendipitybakes #hocsupperclub #hautecuisines #foodblogfeed #vscofoodie #still_life_gallery #food52grams #eeeeeats #vzcomade #thehub_food #thebakefeed #tv_stilllife #f52grams #momentsofmine #epicurious #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #gloobyfood #beautifulcuisines #huffposttaste #buzzfeedfood #thekitchn #buzzfeast #scrumptiouskitchen #vscostyle #tk_captures #lifeandthyme #loveliest4 #myseasonalstory #lovely_squares_1
Whilst the snow was falling outside last week, this little unicorn was keeping me busy indoors 💕 Vanilla cake, vanilla buttercream and strawberry jam nestled under a layer of fondant with handmade fondant flowers, pearls, @sweetapolita sprinkles and a shimmer of glitter dust ✨✨ Unicorns are such a popular theme and I love making them because they look so pretty.

The snow of the last week has melted away in London leaving the wintry weather all but a dream. It’s still cold but it seems incredible to believe we had such arctic weather just a few short days ago. The signs of the approaching spring are re-appearing over the horizon and warmer days are on their way.

Well it’s been a busy week! I’ve been up to Leeds and back for a fab sugar model course, braved my first antiques market at Kempton Racecourse as the weather turned cold, we’ve had snow, snow and yet more snow with the Beast from the East and I’ve made two celebration cakes. In the midst of all this my youngest has been off school poorly and we’ve had to cancel our long awaited trip to Edinburgh this weekend because of the weather. So I’m looking forward to a quiet weekend doing lots of overdue bits and pieces around the house and maybe whipping up a few bakes for the family, maybe some more of these gluten free raspberry scuffins 💕 Sometimes you just need these kinds of weekends, I think, to recharge the batteries! Hope you all have a lovely weekend planned and stay warm in these bitter weather ❄️ . . . . . . #serendipitybakes #hocsupperclub #hautecuisines #foodblogfeed #vscofoodie #still_life_gallery #food52grams #eeeeeats #vzcomade #thehub_food #thebakefeed #tv_stilllife #f52grams #momentsofmine #epicurious #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #gloobyfood #beautifulcuisines #huffposttaste #buzzfeedfood #thekitchn #buzzfeast #scrumptiouskitchen #vscostyle #tk_captures #lifeandthyme #loveliest4 #myseasonalstory #lovely_squares_1
I couldn’t let this crazy snow weather in London pass without sharing how delighted the whole family has been with it ❄️ Our little pup Bella is loving it so much!! She jumps and gambolls around the common on the way to school. She flicks snow into the air and catches it in her mouth. She steals the kids’ snowballs and runs around crazily with them chasing after her. She gleefully gives herself a snow beard. It is so much fun to watch her! But she always leaves me wishing I could bottle some of her energy for the mornings!! 🐾🐶 . . . . . . #serendipitybakes #inspiredbynature_ #onepurlrowglow #still_life_gallery #myseasonalstory #mybeautifulsimplicity #savourtheseason #mycolsiemoment #persuepretty #ofsimplethings #tv_stilllife #click_dynamic #seekthesimplicity #momentsofmine #tv_stilllife #prettycreativestyle #tv_living #littlestoriesofmylife #theartofslowliving #pursuepretty #itsthelittlethings #verilymoment #thatsdarling #bevisuallyinspired #simplepleasures #thatsdarling #wanderlust #savouringtheseason #everydaymagic #thehappynow
*new blog post* I have become sort of addicted to blood oranges this season so when the @hocsupperclub came up with a citrus challenge, I knew I just had to make these mini blood orange doughnuts with blood orange glaze! The doughnuts are flavoured with the the orange zest and then the beautiful natural sticky pink glaze is made with the juice. Isn’t the colour incredible? And they’re the perfect treat size, gluten free and baked in the oven - and can be whipped up with a few store pantry ingredients 🍊🧡 If you’d like to join the citrus challenge, remember to tag your creation with #hocsupperclub and #howicookedwithit 💕 Follow the link in my profile for the recipe xo . . . . . . . #serendipitybakes #midweekcakelove #hautecuisines #foodblogfeed #vscofoodie #still_life_gallery #food52grams #eeeeeats #vzcomade #thehub_food #thebakefeed #tv_stilllife #f52grams #epicurious #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #gloobyfood #beautifulcuisines #huffposttaste #buzzfeedfood #scrumptiouskitchen #vscostyle #tk_captures #lifeandthyme #loveliest4 #myseasonalstory #lovely_squares_1 #gatheringandstyling #inspiredbynature_
I had the most amazing day at a fabulous @silviamancini_cakeart workshop creating this gorgeous girl skipping! Silvia was such a wonderful teacher and showed us how to create incredible details and structure and I learned so much from her in just one day. My only regret is that I couldn't have stayed for the whole weekend and done her two other workshops! I named my little skipping girl *Lola* during our long and adventure-filled journey back to London 😆 A huge thank you too to Zoe @zoesfancycakes and Richard for the warm welcome into their studio up in Horsforth - loved meeting you both and it was great to finally see your new studio and shop!! I just wish I lived closer so I could come more often 💗 And finally, if you want to see some of Zoe's incredible models close up (many of them from her YouTube channel) I've put some of my favourites on Instagram Stories today xo #serendipitybakes . . . . . . #cupcakeproject #sweetmagazine #confettifork #vscofood #foodvsco #f52grams #forkfeed #lifeandthyme #bakeitforward #undiscovered_bakers #eeeeeats #thebakefeed #gloobyfood #vzcomade #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #bakingwithlove #scrumptiouskitchen #cakeinspiration #beautifulcuisines #cakeporm #huffposttaste #thebakefeed #bakeandshare #spoonfeed #buzzfeed #sugarart #cakesinstyle #prettycreativestyle #cakestagram
I am so excited and have already been up for an hour and a half and am on the train to Leeds for a workshop with @zoesfancycakes and @silviamancini_cakeart today! Last week was a busy cake week and I wanted to share this pretty girly cake. Those of you that know me well, know that with my two boys I don’t often get the chance to make pretty pink cakes so I was delighted when I was asked to make this fairy cake for a 5th birthday. I LOVED making the fairy and flowers and showering it with edible glitter ✨✨ Perfect for a fairy party 🧚🏻‍♀️ #serendipitybakes . . . . . . #cupcakeproject #sweetmagazine #confettifork #vscofood #foodvsco #f52grams #forkfeed #lifeandthyme #bakeitforward #undiscovered_bakers #eeeeeats #thebakefeed #gloobyfood #vzcomade #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #bakingwithlove #scrumptiouskitchen #cakeinspiration #beautifulcuisines #cakeporm #huffposttaste #thebakefeed #bakeandshare #spoonfeed #buzzfeed #sugarart #cakesinstyle #prettycreativestyle #cakestagram
Happy Sunday everyone!! I have been so busy caking it this weekend that my feet haven’t touched the ground. I had plans to bake which didn’t stretch further than the cakes themselves so today I’m looking forward to a relaxing day starting with 2 hours on a freezing cold rugby pitch watching my youngest play 😂 Wishing I had a batch of this shortbread with bee pollen to take with me but it will give me an incentive to bake when I’m back home!!

I’m extremely glad it’s Friday although I have a busy cake weekend coming up!! Two cakes to decorate and one to make before Sunday 😳 I made these little raspberry *scuffins*, a cool name for these hybrid scones and muffins, earlier in the week and they went down a treat. It felt better to use wholewheat flour and virtually no sugar (although the toppings may be our downfall, in my case being lashings of lemon curd 🍋) I will write this up and post it on the blog when I get a minute in between caking :) Hope you all have lovely plans for the weekend xo . . . . . . #serendipitybakes #hocsupperclub #midweekcakelove #hautecuisines #foodblogfeed #vscofoodie #still_life_gallery #food52grams #eeeeeats #vzcomade #thehub_food #thebakefeed #tv_stilllife #f52grams #momentsofmine #epicurious #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #gloobyfood #beautifulcuisines #huffposttaste #buzzfeedfood #thekitchn #buzzfeast #scrumptiouskitchen #vscostyle #tk_captures #lifeandthyme #myseasonalstory #serendipitystyling #gatheringandstyling
I really enjoyed making my last brioche loaf so have another one proving right now as a treat for the boys when they get home from school today. The chocolate and cinnamon swirls were heavenly but the boys have requested nutella in this latest one so we’ll try that and see how the taste test goes! I’ve been busy with all the little details for the cakes I’m delivering this weekend which is the fun part and today will be baking day in my kitchen. If you have any other bread recipes that you love that you think I should try next, I’d love to hear them 😊 . . . . . . #serendipitybakes #hocsupperclub #muchbreadertogether #hautecuisines #foodblogfeed #vscofoodie #still_life_gallery #food52grams #eeeeeats #vzcomade #thehub_food #thebakefeed #tv_stilllife #f52grams #momentsofmine #epicurious #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #gloobyfood #beautifulcuisines #huffposttaste #buzzfeedfood #thekitchn #buzzfeast #scrumptiouskitchen #vscostyle #tk_captures #lifeandthyme #myseasonalstory #serendipitystyling #gatheringandstyling
You know when you have one of those weeks that flies by?! That’s this week for me 🤪 My baking plans were slightly waylaid after an impromptu morning out at the vets for a poorly pup but fortunately I’m still on track although there’s sure to be late nights involved!! I thought these little scone muffins would be a welcome treat which I made with wholemeal flour and I squished in some frozen raspberries just before baking for extra tastiness. There’s virtually no sugar in them (1 tbsp across the 8 muffins) so we enjoy them smothered in lemon curd and suddenly they make a long day seem that little bit better! 🍋 #serendipitybakes . . . . . . #hocsupperclub #hautecuisines #foodblogfeed #vscofoodie #still_life_gallery #food52grams #eeeeeats #vzcomade #thehub_food #foodphotography #thebakefeed #tv_stilllife #f52grams #momentsofmine #epicurious #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #gloobyfood #beautifulcuisines #huffposttaste #buzzfeedfood #thekitchn #buzzfeast #scrumptiouskitchen #winterstories #vscostyle #tk_captures #lifeandthyme #bakeandshare #cupcakeproject
It’s been a lovely half term and I can’t believe how quickly school holidays fly by now.

So this was birthday cake No 4, a birthday surprise and definitely the last one for his celebrations this year!! It’s a super delicious sour cream chocolate cake with layers of raspberry coulis and raspberry Swiss meringue buttercream topped with chocolate ganache and chocolate shards with freeze dried strawberries ❤️ It was inspired by another @stylesweetca cake recipe but I played around with different recipes and flavours. I don’t usually slice my layers so thinly but I love the height of it made even taller by the chocolate shards! We even had leftovers to take to the grandparents which made it popular all round ❤️ #serendipitybakes . . . . . . #cupcakeproject #sweetmagazine #confettifork #vscofood #foodvsco #f52grams #forkfeed #lifeandthyme #bakeitforward #undiscovered_bakers #eeeeeats #thebakefeed #gloobyfood #vzcomade #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #bakingwithlove #scrumptiouskitchen #cakeinspiration #beautifulcuisines #cakeporm #huffposttaste #thebakefeed #bakeandshare #spoonfeed #buzzfeed #cakesinstyle #prettycreativestyle #gatheringandstyling
Babka or brioche? Whatever name you want to give this loaf, I find there’s nothing more satisfying than making my own bread (and it’s always very gratefully received in our house 😍) It’s something that doesn’t happen as much as it should given that it’s always a surefire winner especially swirled with this cinnamon chocolate and served warm from the oven drizzled with maple syrup! This is such a wonderful recipe from @deliciousmag and is ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Happy Friday, everyone 😊 . . . . . . #serendipitybakes #hocsupperclub #muchbreadertogether #hautecuisines #foodblogfeed #vscofoodie #still_life_gallery #food52grams #eeeeeats #vzcomade #thehub_food #thebakefeed #tv_stilllife #f52grams #momentsofmine #epicurious #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #gloobyfood #beautifulcuisines #huffposttaste #buzzfeedfood #thekitchn #buzzfeast #scrumptiouskitchen #vscostyle #tk_captures #lifeandthyme #myseasonalstory #serendipitystyling #gatheringandstyling
A fun little cake that I made for my eldest’s birthday party a few weeks back. This was actually No 1 in the birthday cake series (we’re up to No 4!!) We got a Nintendo Switch at Christmas so I’ve been reliving my childhood of Super Mario and we thought this would be a great theme for his party cake 🎂 I loved making all the characters under his critical watch!!! 💗 #serendipitybakes . . . . . . #cupcakeproject #sweetmagazine #confettifork #vscofood #foodvsco #f52grams #forkfeed #lifeandthyme #bakeitforward #undiscovered_bakers #eeeeeats #thebakefeed #gloobyfood #vzcomade #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #bakingwithlove #scrumptiouskitchen #cakeinspiration #beautifulcuisines #cakeporm #huffposttaste #thebakefeed #bakeandshare #spoonfeed #buzzfeed #sugarart #cakesinstyle #prettycreativestyle #cakestagram
Happy Valentine’s Day!! Here’s another glimpse of my little brown butter cake with layers of raspberry swiss meringue buttercream that I think is just perfect for this day of love, especially coupled with one of these gorgeous cookies from @sugarplumkingston. Today is my eldest’s 10th birthday (double digits 🙈) and later we’ll be eating chocolate birthday cake when I’ve finished making it!!

This is the most perfect cake for Valentine’s Day and it’s so delicious.

*new blog post* I have so been enjoying blood orange season but when I went into our local store to buy some for a cake, I couldn’t find any so decided to pair pink grapefruit and rosemary instead in this delicious bundt cake. The cake is baked with grapefruit pulp and rosemary, then soaked with a warm grapefruit sugar syrup and finally crowned with a sticky sweet grapefruit icing and sprigs of rosemary. The cake is a little sharp but that balances well with the sugary syrup and icing. I thought this would be a cake for the grown-ups to share but the kids devoured most of it and gave it a double thumbs up (that’s when I know I’m always onto a winner!) . . . . . . #serendipitybakes #hocsupperclub #hautecuisines #foodblogfeed #vscofoodie #still_life_gallery #food52grams #eeeeeats #vzcomade #thehub_food #thebakefeed #tv_stilllife #f52grams #momentsofmine #epicurious #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #gloobyfood #beautifulcuisines #huffposttaste #buzzfeedfood #thekitchn #buzzfeast #scrumptiouskitchen #vscostyle #tk_captures #lifeandthyme #loveliest4 #myseasonalstory #thecupcakeproject #serendipitystyling
We’re onto birthday cake(s) No 3 and still haven’t got to the actual birthday yet! I’m sure I never got this much cake when I was little!!!

Happy Friday, everyone! We’ve been enjoying the season of blood oranges and made these mini blood orange doughnuts with blood orange glaze - don’t you just adore the colour?!

I’m so excited to receive my copy of The Supper Club’s “Nourishing Dishes and Stories To Begin Again”. This issue features my Apple, Blackberry + Raspberry Pie With Coconut Pastry which is both gluten and dairy-free. At this time of year, there’s nothing more enjoyable than a home-baked pie and it’s my idea of comfort food.
