Monday Morning







Today has already been such a busy day! I'm off home this week, so I've had some orders off my daddy to bake him lots of cakes! My kitchen looked more like a bakery this morning! Flour, sugar, icing......all over the place!
After dropping my boyfriend off at uni, I decided to pop into town quickly and was soooo glad I found the black leather jacket at Primark for only £20 as I've been looking for one like this for what seems like years! Then I decided to pop into a local charity shop and found those lovely teacups....they are so gorgeous! I think it was definitely meant to be since I've also been looking for ones like these for a while, and they're small and super sweet!
After lunch, I decided to bake more cakes....the ones pictured are chocolate tray bake cakes with chocolate ganache icing (they're not finished in the pic, this is just a quick pic I took after covering them with the ganache - I then added some orange flavoured icing lines) This recipe will be up soon, it's one of my Halloween treat ideas....Death by chocolate?
I'm also about to bake some BARA BRITH...this is a Welsh fruit cake/ loaf. I will post the recipe up soon and hopefully someone else will be tempted to bake this and show me their results!

Hope you're all having a lovely day
