Banana bread is such a classic that baking it is almost a cult activity during quarantine. Its popularity is probably due to its versatility and ease of baking. I mean Banana bread is great for hosting afternoon tea, as a dessert to take to a bring-your-own-dish party or just to have at home when you fancy a snack. This gluten free loaf is simple but delicious, and ideal for using up bananas that are about to go off.
Before lockdown, my boyfriend and I bought our first house, eek. It took a while getting the place sorted but we were finally ready to have a housewarming, I took a long time writing this up so this was still before quarantine. Regardless, no housewarming is complete without cake! My first thought was these cakes need keys, and the inspiration that came to me was a Harry Potter style key, so these could also be made for a Harry Potter party or even a 20’s themed murder mystery.
Baby Yoda might just be one of the cutest things on the internet right now. Just like everyone who doesn’t live under a rock, I relate so hard to Baby Yoda. I needed to bring the cuteness home, so I tried to in the form of a giant cake pop Baby Yoda.
OK so they’re not actually pumpkin flavour! But these gluten free cake pops are shaped like adorable little pumpkins and taste like chocolate orange, so that’s even better right? As much as I love pumpkin flavour on a cold day, not everyone actually likes pumpkin, so chocolate orange is a safer bet.
It’s biscuit week in my house. This post is a little late for the Great British Bake Off biscuit week, but the recipe is guaranteed to be way easier. Hey, what can I say, a girl has things to do and no tent to bake in.
When you fancy a sweet treat, Dr Pepper ticks that box. Even better if it’s in cake form.
However if you don’t love Dr Pepper simply replace it with cola.
How else do you celebrate a baby shower than with baby decorations on baby size cakes?
When it comes to fairy cakes, I pick cactus themed.
Whilst more effort that a buttercream swirl, the cactus piping is still pretty easy to do and satisfying to watch.
I chose chocolate cake to represent soil, making them look like potted succulents.
What makes these cupcakes German you ask? The colours, that is all I have loosely tying them to my theme, but they are still delicious 🇩🇪
I kept these ones simple to focus on the colours. They’re a classic vanilla buttercream on chocolate muffin sized cupcakes.
Nothing says summer party like flamingo cupcakes. Bursting with fruity flavour and bold colour, these cupcakes are the life of the party.
You can opt to make them whatever flavour you want and use food colour in the buttercream, but I chose raspberry as it creates the colour as well as taste. Two birds one stone.
