Blondies for Rachel

It was Rachel's birthday, so I made her some blondies.

That's right, blondies.

They are brownies but with white chocolate.

For good measure, I also added chopped milk chocolate
and crushed Dime bars.

A winning combination, though I do say it myself.

Stem ginger cupcakes

I got the Cupcakes from the Primrose Bakery book for Christmas so
decided to make some ginger cupcakes.

They are super-treacley and tangy, much denser and
stronger in flavour than usual cupcakes, so great for Christmas time.

They feature black molasses, treacle and stem ginger pieces,
so are not for the faint-hearted.

To finish, slather in ginger fudge icing and
sprinkle with demerara sugar...

About Me

I'm a fashion writer/baking enthusiast based in North London.

I'm particularly keen on icing and decoration as I love painstakingly laborious tasks, but the cakes taste great too.

Should you wish to get in touch re a commission, please do!
