So it was my birthday on the 1st of January and Bruce made me a very yummy chocolate cake he found in Donna Hay's chocolate book: filled with mascarpone coffee cream and covered in chocolate ganache, it's pure indulgence and the perfect birthday cake. So I remade the cake with a few minor changes for the blog as I thought it was too good not to share.
We had some gorgeous blue skies last week, so I grabbed my camera and together with Bruce, we went for a lovely walk around Marylebone - love that part of London. Here are a few shots from the walk:
I've also finally joined Pinterest properly. I mean, I joined sometime last year, but just didn't have the time to really get into it. And now that I've spent some time on there, I'm officially addicted! For all those on Pinterest, I'm sure you know what I'm talking about (or is it just me?). For those not on Pinterest yet, at the moment you can only get on there by invite only, so let me know if you'd like an invitation, I think I have a few left (I'll need your email address where I can send the invite to, you can either leave it in the comments below, or email me directly).
Let me know if you're on there - looking forward to seeing your boards!
Also, for all those that have been waiting for my Whoopie Pie book, I'm so happy to announce that it's finally back in stock again at amazon after being out of stock for so long! I'm loving all the photos, instagrams, tweets, etc. from all those of you that have started receiving the book - makes me so happy to see everyone baking from my book!! See some instagrams (& comments) here, and here and here and here and here.
To all those that have received the book, I'd really appreciate it if you could take the time to leave a review on amazon. THANK YOU SO MUCH! x
