Halloween and Bonfire night are over – I hope everyone had fun trick or treating and watching firework displays. There were some fab spooky cakes submitted to last month’s Celebration Cakes and Bakes as well as some other special birthday cakes. As always thanks to everyone who joined in – I hope you have some special bakes to add again this month.
The first entry last month was a fabulous Rocky Horror cake that I came across on twitter one night – the lettering is perfect and the theme instantly recognizable to anyone who’s seen the film or show. The cake was made by Michelle from the Purple Pumpkin Blog for an 18th birthday party.
Next came my own Room on the Broom Autumn cake – I have to say I was very proud of this cake – it used lots of different techniques from tempered chocolate to cinder toffee and has won me not one but two prizes! The first was a bottle of wine from the school fete and the second was some Viners bakeware thanks to the great blogger’s bake off final run by Jenny from Mummy Mishaps.
The third entry was from Carole at Carole finds her wings and was an inventive Chocolate and blackberry cheesecake swirl. I love the mould she used (I acutally have the same one myself) and always like seeing how bundt cakes turn out.
Jenny from Mummy Mishaps linked up two lovely cakes this month, first a spooky Pumpkin Pinata Cake filled with Halloween candy. Everything a little ghost or ghoul could desire!
Jenny’s second cake was an unusual take on the many Frozen themed cakes we’ve seen this year – a simple blue coloured snowball cake decorated with sugar pearls and mini snowflakes. I love that it’s such a simple idea but still instantly recognisable as a Frozen themed cake.
Jen at Bakearama linked up the brightly coloured Sprinkles and Checkerboard Cake that she made to celebrate the 3rd birthday of Derby’s Clandestine Cake Club – I love the idea of these clubs but sadly my local one always seems to meet on Thursdays which is the night I go to dance class. This cake sounds so refreshing with the citrus and raspberry flavours.
Finally we have a Honey and Date roll with a lime filling from Winnie at Winnie’s Blog. As always this looks stunning and is a very inventive flavour combination.
November’s Celebration Cakes and Bakes linky is now open – I’d love to see any Halloween of early Christmas bakes that you’ve made – or any birthday / celebration cakes!
If you have a cake or bake to link up please join in the linky below. The rules are simple:
You must have made the bake yourself – no buying from the local cake shop.
It must be a post about making the bake – it doesn’t have to be a full on recipe but it does need to be in the spirit of the thing.
It doesn’t need to be a new post it could be one from last year, but if it’s a seasonal celebration bake it should be appropriate – so no Easter cakes at Christmas, save them for springtime.
Posts must include the Celebration Cakes & Bakes badge (grab the code below)
Please comment on a few of the other entries – remember linkys only work if you spread the linky love!
That’s it everything else is optional.
If you follow me on twitter @jaisee_mummy and tweet me with the hashtag #CelebrationCakesAndBakes I will retweet any entries that I see.
