I stayed up until a ridiculous hour of the night trying to come up with a variety of cakes with a Spring vibe. Today, I present to you the 'Goodbye Winter, Hello Sunshine!' collection.
Strawberries on the base, then the sponge, followed by a delicious Mascarpone Cream icing (did I say that's my favourite?), topped off with some tasty red berries...
The Strawberry still isn't fully in season yet so it's not as bashy (tasty) as it could be but it was really delicious and moist.
I was on a berry vibe so I thought I would give the humble Raspberry an opportunity to shine.
The Easter Mini Egg basket is your basic vanilla cake and buttercream mix with a swirl topping. A simple but good value for calories cake with all the added chocolate. You can make it last for a while by saving the eggs and eating them later, a gift that just keeps on giving #justsaying.
My mum who is very creative, helped me out with the styling on this photo... I think you'll agree that she is clearly a professional.
So the other two are Lemon Flower aka Lemon flavour with a flower on top and Vanilla Candy. I topped some of the vanilla cakes with the Necco Candy Wafers. I like the wafers, maybe because they're American, come in cool pastel colours and are really hard to get hold of - exclusive designer candy and ting.
