A Bit of Baking

Hello! I hope you had a lovely weekend! We enjoyed ours - gardening, shopping, seeing family and friends - and a bit of baking which I am showing you today. Nothing fancy of course, I just make simple things...
Like these little cakes. I use Delia Smith's All in One Sponge recipe for my cakes, as I have for years, as she promised in her book that it will never go wrong and she was right!
Then there is the icing...we have a choice of pink or white with sprinkles. Now we have a little boy in the family I do try to have alternatives to pink....
The little cakes have all gone now, and it's fruit and vegetables all the way until next weekend! Apart from this little cake which is always around - a crochet cake which I bought on a shopping trip in the summer.
Hope you have a great week filled with sweet things. x

There's nothing like a little cupcake and a cup of tea!
The crochet cake is lovely too with the added advantage of zero calories!!!

Love the little crochet cake and as Vivienne says no calories either! Those little cakes too look delicious - I hardly ever do any such baking these days as I would eat it if I did!!

Hi Helen, Love your sweet treats. I am watching my 2 granddaughters for the week. Oh my! Love them to bits and piecets but it is sooo 24/7. I received your new book thru Amazon.com, it is Amazing. Have a wonderful week also. Robin❤ Probably not much knitting for me....that's OK

Hi Helen! This is my first visit to your lovely blog. Love your pretty crafts and baking. I think I am going to totally enjoy reading your archives. By the way, I am a grandmother also. I have three little grandgirlies!
