Ginger Cake with Lemon Icing

Please excuse me I appear to have eaten this week's Surprise Cake! Well, can you blame me? It's a gorgeous moist cake with pieces of preserved ginger inside, then topped with lemon icing, yum! OK, OK I'll get back in the kitchen and bake you another batch. Click "surprise me" on any of our slices and we'll get a slice sent out to you.

Easy Peasy Banana Ice-Creamy

I know that today is freezing and we are still very much in winter. However, we decided that we didn't want to be any more and thought you might like our recipe for Easy Peasy Banana Ice-Cream. Surely we are all allowed a taste of summer and it gives you something to do with brown bananas!


1/2 Pint of Milk
4 frozen Peeled Bananas
1tsp Honey

Blitz in the bananas a food processor straight from freezer with the milk and honey.

Easy Peasy, a quick pudding anytime of the year!

Raspberry Blondies

Oh yes, I know that we have had these as our special before and it is precisely for this reason that they are this week's "Surprise Me" slice. Back by popular demand! Apparently the gorgeous caramel taste with the sharp burst of raspberry is enough for you to ask for more. So we thought we had better give in. Let's face it, there is no point arguing with you our discerning customer.

Cartoons and Cake!

What? I know, trust me this has a lot to do with cake. You will have seen the lovely juggling cartoon lady on our site. She is the creation of Colin Shelbourn, an amazing cartoonist and a good friend of ours. Recently, he has inspired me to try drawing myself... Ok so I'm not quite up to his standard yet but I'm working on it ;)

I bought his book - Drawing Cartoons - and had a go. Let me know what you think. If you fancy joining in, he has been setting homework on Twitter each day. 

Oh and I did say this was about cake didn't I! Colin did this when he saw our "Say it with Cake"
because sometimes words aren't enough.

Red Velvet

We've been thinking, and, what with Valentine's Day coming up, we thought we should bring a special out this week with this is mind. So we bring you the Red Velvet Cake. A sumptuous moist cake, covered in chocolate and hand made with love. What more could you ask for on the most romantic day of the year (apart from diamonds!)? What's more for a limited time only you will find it as an option for our cake cards
