Here’s a quick look back to June with this fusion wedding for 
Bridey & Adhavan.

I love that they embraced an elegant English wedding in the day, followed by a burst of rich colours in the evening for their Sri Lankan celebrations.

Here’s how I got on with the Mincemeat recipe from my Nans cookbook, originally her Mums recipe!

So I’ve actually never made my own mincemeat before and I don’t know why not, it’s so easy! 

With apples from our own trees in the garden, Brandy soaked fruits, warming spices and vegetable suit, I think this will make some delicious vegetarian Mince Pies when the time comes.

With my own tweak to the recipe, I did add some fresh orange zest and juice along with a large glug of Cherry Brandy. 

What do you fancy making this Christmas, that you haven’t made before? 

I’d love to know below x

with each other, your loved ones and cake! 


Family Recipes

It’s that time of the year when I start thinking about the big ‘C’ word, only from a baking perspective of course, it’s far too early to think about anything else right? 

My children think otherwise 🤦🏻‍♀️

So for the past few years I haven’t had the time to prepare ahead but this year I am organised and ready to go! 

I was thinking… my late Mum always made her ‘C’ pudding in the October half term as she worked in a primary school and used the break to bake. So I must make mine now.

Time to flick through my most treasured recipe books, handed down from the dearly missed matriarchs in my life, my Mum, my mother-in-law and my Nan.

Here in my Nan’s well used recipe book, I found this mincemeat  recipe that was her Mum’s recipe… so I’m going to give it a go, alongside making ‘C’ puddings. 

I’ll let you know how I get on making Great Grandmas Mincemeat for the first time, ready for the mince pies…… 

…I’m not sure I’ll make the Mince meat flan!!! 🤣

Scroll all the way back to the start of your camera roll, what do you find? 

You’ll never guess what I find… cake! 
This one’s from 2015!

Half Term shenanigans

So it’s break time here at my baking HQ 
and two of my three are having their break from school and college but they don’t get a break from me🤣


I know that I am very lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the UK, Devon, a place called home and I never take it for granted. 

During the summer season of weddings, I often look out of my window, whilst the ovens are busy cooking and I slowly bake 🤣🥵, I wish that I could be out walking in the sunshine. 

So, when my work load is calmer and the sun is still shining, I love nothing more than to get those walking feet moving.
