cake.


Its always nice to indulge occasionally, mum had been at home all day and decided to make us all a little treat for when we got in from work. The cake is a simple sponge and a lemon icing which was just divine. The cookies were made by my mum and my brother, they tasted a little like ben's cookie when they were freshly baked don't you just love being a little over-indulgent and naughty occasionally.

  20. This is making me oh so hungry, I love cake, who doesn't? Although I tried to make fairy cakes the other day using a cake mix someone bought me ages ago (and was out of date) and they went horribly wrong, even the butter icing I tried to use to rectify the situation tasted horrible! (: xx
