Rosette Cake

Rosette Cake

  I made this cake for my eldest daughter’s birthday party. As she turned 8, she wanted something a little bit more “grown up” than the usual fondant cakes. The theme of the party was “high tea”, so I though that a Rosette Cake would do the trick. This was my first Rosette cake and…

Kitty Cat Doughnuts

Kitty Cat Doughnuts

I saw these on the internet while searching for ideas for my 5 year old’s kitten themed birthday party.  Apparently these Kitty Cat Doughnuts are quite popular in Japan.  So I set on a mission to replicate them at home.  I have a little confession to make.  I don’t like doughnuts.  Or so I thought. …

Cheese Mouse on a Cracker

Today’s post is not really a recipe, but I thought this Cheese Mouse on a Cracker looked too cute not to have a post of its own!  All you need to make these “mice” are cheese spread triangles, black sesame seeds, salami and… crackers off course!  I made these for Georgia’s 5th birthday party.  The theme…

As you may know, my eldest daughter loves everything coconut at the moment, and she has a very sweet tooth (she took after her daddy in this).  So she always wants something sweet in her school lunch box and I try to make something from scratch for her, so at least I know what she…
