Kylo Ren Cake

Sunshine and sunflowers

The most enjoyable part of my job has to be meeting with customers to design their wedding cake. Sometimes the Bride and Groom know exactly what they want down to the last detail but more often than not they’re happy to chat through ideas, look for inspiration,...

It’s a bank holiday Monday so therefore it’s raining (lots) here in Norfolk, so instead of our planned trip to the coast we’ve decided to stay in and bake some brownies! This is  a lovely quick recipe to make with the children (or on your own, still...
