White Chocolate and Cranberry Tart

This year we were each in charge of a course for Christmas dinner so I did puddings and wanted something not too heavy. This is a White Chocolate Tart with festive cranberries sprinkled on top.
We also had Mincepies, Madeira cake and Christmas fruit cake...I don't think anyone went hungry!

There were two reasons I couldn't refuse doing this cake, firstly it was to be made for a lady very dear to my Auntie's heart and also, when am I ever going to get the chance to do a 100th birthday cake again?! 
It needed to be as soft as possible so we have eight very thin layers of chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream icing.
It is a 4" cake to serve 9 for £25.

Yoghurt, Lime and Pistachio Sponge

Since my highest demand is for sponge layer cakes I thought I would experiment on some new sponges! This one is a no-butter Yoghurt, Lime and Pistachio Sponge, it is so moist but keeps its shape well and would layer perfectly.

On the other hand just simple as in the photo this would be a lovely cake to bring to a dinner party, everyone loves a 'home-made cake' -it can be our secret!-

This would come to £15 for 8" sponge to feed 10 or it would be at an extra £3 on top of the original layer cake.

When In France...

...make a Tarte aux Fraises!

My need to bake followed me on holiday so I made a strawberry tart which goes down really well with the family.
A shortcrust pastry base filled with vanilla french custard and topped with fresh strawberries.
The extra shine comes from a thin coat of honey!

Depending on what fruit is in season this would cost £15 to feed 8.
