AnOther cake party at Selfridges

So Arthur and I went to a brilliant party during LFW, AnOther magazine's
10th Anniversary bash
at Selfridges.

There was an exhibiton of designer cakes upstairs in the Concept Store, but
we really loved the cakepops downstairs at the Wonder Room party.

As well as awesome face cakepops, there was candyfloss, popcorn,
exploding candy and weird butter caramel shots and fizzing margheritas.

And a someone jumped out of a cake.

By the end we felt thoroughly sick, but in the best possible way...

Happy Valentine's Day

Sadly I was too slow to get one, but there was a huge box of these
super-cute mini cupcakes in the office today.

Thanks Rach, Nige and Leona for letting me photograph yours.

I'll just go hungry, it's fine.

Vanilla choc chip cookies

Very simple, but very tasty, here are some vanilla choc chip cookies...

I roughly chopped a bar of dark chocolate rather than using choc chips,
as then you get nice big chunks of gooey chocolate.

I also added some chopped brazil nuts, almonds and hazelnuts
for added crunch and flavour.

Double choc cookies for Catrin

Here are some double chocolate cookies I made for
Atb creative director Catrin's birthday...

The recipe is from the Hummingbird Bakery cookbook and
contains a mere 450g of dark chocolate for 12 cookies.

Yep, they're pretty hardcore... the perfect accompaniment
to a poster advocating excessive alcohol consumption.

Ever happy to pose for a photo, here's Cookieface.

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.
