Orange and Sultana Fairy Cakes

My Dad has really caught onto my fondness for baking to the point where every time I visit home now, I take my baking equipment and (some) ingredients and bake something for him. Sometimes he’ll specifically request something, other times he will let me choose. This little recipe is something he asked for me to make so here it is.

I didn’t make this recipe from any book that I have, so I was a little bit nervous that they wouldn’t rise properly or taste amazing but I didn’t have any complaints from Dad!

Homemade Mincemeat

So Christmas is just around the corner as we all know (only 49 sleeps to go!) and I thought I’d make my own mincemeat to get into the festive spirit!

Carrot Cupcakes

This is a bake of mine that I did about 6 weeks ago now, for a friend of mine I play netball with. She needed some cupcakes to take to a work party and said she knew exactly who to turn to. How flattering!

I spotted these carrot decorations in Sainsbury’s a few months ago on offer for a £1 so I picked them up, knowing I’d definitely use them at some point and here the opportunity came!
