Choo Choo Chai Cake

On Saturday I went to York Clandestine Cake Club‘s event which was to be held in the restaurant of the National Railway Museum in York.  I was really looking forward to going as Rachel, the organiser had chosen such a super venue and a brilliant theme to be incorporated into cake!  A huge thank you…

Apricot and White Chocolate Cookies

Last week I was feeling a little bit nostalgic for my children’s baby and toddler hood.

Happy Easter! 2 Weeks Later Than Everyone Else!
