Carrot Cake

Of course I start the thing then realise I'm missing some ingredients. No sultanas so I substituted for half chopped nuts, half cinnamon cranberries. Had no ginger so added some nutmeg and mixed spice and a pinch of luck ;) Think this might be my favourite so far.

Boozy Christmas Cake

Made these a few weeks ago. Simple recipe, almost too simple. Hmmm might have to eat some just to check it's OK ;) Feeding them with alcohol every few weeks before they get iced.

Vegan Birthday Cake for My Mate Hazel

I used the Victoria Sponge recipe for my cake. First attempt at decorating, so happy enough. Covered cake in buttercream before covering with fondant (You can buy ready made or make your own). I used little icing pens I found in Poundland, anything for an easy life.
