Italian Cream Cake

April 20, 2015

italian-cream-cake-1

The other day I tried my hand at an Italian Cream Cake. For those of you who have no idea what an Italian Cream Cake is, not to worry I’ll explain…it’s a white cake that originates from the South that is flavoured with coconut and pecan nuts and covered in cream cheese icing. I know what you’re going to say, where does the Italian and cream fit into it? Well the cream is in the batter and as for the Italian, I’m as confused as you are on that one…

Before I stumbled across this recipe, I had also never heard of or tasted an Italian Cream Cake, but now I’m so glad that I’m no longer a stranger to this fluffy coconut-ty cake of loveliness.

nina-jame-and-friends

Yesterday a bunch of our friends who hadn’t yet met Miss Nina James came to the house to see her. It was so nice hanging out with everyone and Nina even managed to stay awake for about 40% of the visit, she just sort of quietly stared at each person who held her, she was probably wondering how the hell so many giant faces could fit in one room at the same time.

Pistachio cream cake

Here are some of the flipping delicious looking things that I have pinned lately and drooled over. I’m so happy to have my sweet teeth back, whilst I was pregnant I craved salty things more that sweet, which is really not like me, but I’m happy to say that that has all changed. I could take any of these cakes out right now with my bare hands and face, no fork needed.

All the recipes are below each photo.

Easy chocolate cupcake recipe

July 17, 2014

chocolate cupcake

I’m always trying out new cupcakes recipes, for vanilla and chocolate cupcakes specifically – I have made some really nice ones in the past and some that are so so. Yesterday we had the Durrants over for lunch, so I thought it would be a good opportunity to try out the recipe below for chocolate cupcakes, plus I woke up in the morning feeling like cupcakes – Are you surprised? No, neither am I.

I also wanted to mention that I have added a new category to the left of my blog called My Recipes, which includes all the recipes I have tried out by myself that I have found online, in books and from friends.

Cinnamon and Sugar Mini Donuts

July 9, 2014

mini-donuts-16

The other day my very pregnant face and I really felt like cinnamon and sugar donuts, so I looked on my ‘baked goods’ board on Pinterest for an easy recipe that I remember glancing over a few weeks back, which I even bought a mini muffin tin for the last time I was at the shops. This recipe has very few ingredients and the end result is reached super quickly. I literally made these in a few minutes and then literally ate like 8 of them in a few seconds.

I actually feel like them again, now that I’m typing about them. Damn sweet teeth.
