This is a two tier princess cake for Nick, a 24 year old -needless to say he didn't choose it himself!-.

Happy 60th Birthday Grandma Ricketts!
This was a small 5" 4 layered sponge cake decorated similar to a previous cake but in a green colour scheme as that is the colour of the Grandma's birth stone.
Serves 10 for £20

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.
