Tea for Two


So what does a girl do when one of her fav friends comes for tea?

Lays a pretty tray with thin lipped mugs (we like lots of tea), sparkly sugar and a teapot

And then quickly whips up a yummy cake

We had a wonderful afternoon catching up, and let me tell you – the cake was delish too. So simple – basically a vanilla sponge with turkish delight sweets folded into it and then iced with a glace icing and topped with more sweeties. Really moist, full of flavour, not too sweet and such a pretty colour too! If you would like the recipe, please leave a comment and i’ll mail you.

First Birthday Cake


I thought that this would be the perfect topic for my 1st official Yummy Mummy Blog post!


I hope that you will return often to enjoy the feast of delightful cakes, cupcakes and other moreish goodies that will be shared with you on this blog.

All the cakes and eats that I produce, are done so using only quality and fresh ingredients.  Home made butter, free-range eggs, hand-milked (is that a word) milk to mention a but a few.

The cake below is one I recently made for a little boy’s first birthday.  The ‘design brief’ was simple – the mom had sent out invites with stars on them, and as her little boy was ‘her star’ she wanted to use stars somehow.

This is what I came up with.  A No 1 cake, decorated with Vanilla Buttercream Frosting and Sugarpaste Stars.  Simple – but how gorgeous?

And Star Cupcakes to match – vanilla with Green, Blue & Yellow Vanilla Buttercream Frosting & sprinkled with little Sugar Paste Stars.

And just for fun – Star Shaped Sugar Cookies.  Frosted with Royal Icing and then simply sprinkled with Sugar Paste Stars again.

Aren’t they fun?  This ‘theme’ could so easy be substituted by flowers, butterflies, frogs, dinosours,cars – whatever!

Have cutter, make shapes!
