TWD Blueberry Crumb Cake The Sequel

There's not much to say about these really - They dont look pretty, They taste quite nice and I've eaten 2 pieces. I can't say they blew me away - I put too much lemon zest in so this might be why but again they were ok!

We even tried them for breakfast and it was exactly like I expected..I felt like I was eating cake for breakfast - sadly, this isnt the first time I've done this!

Next week will be Coconut Butter Thins chosen by The Barefoot Kitchen Witch.

TWD - Blueberry Crumb Cake

After a break of about 6 months from the baking group, Tuesdays with Dorie, I am back with spatula in hand and kitchen aid at the ready. This group bake every week from the book Baking From My Home To Yours by Dorie Greenspan. If you haven't come across this book yet, rush out and buy it - its fantastic. The aim of this group is to get us baking something that we might not normally try and most of the recipes I have done so far have been a great success (We don't really mention the homemade marshmallows very often in our house!) This weeks recipe was chosen by Sihan from Befuddlement The recipe can be found on Sihan's site (or in the book obviously!)I don't think I am officially due to start back yet but decided to go with the recipe anyway!

The good news is that the recipe was easy to follow and smells delicious - The bad news is that it is still in the oven - Not sure how you would be able to get this recipe done, cooked and eaten for breakfast but so far I'd say it would be worth it - I can't wait for it to come out!

In the meantime, I will leave you with a picture of a recent wedding cake which consisted of a 7" fruit tier with 50 cupcakes all with sparkly hearts.

A new one for me! I know nothing about Star Wars but will give anything a go! This is supposed to be R2D2 (?) with Star Wars type writing. For a little boy who is gorgeous and sooo chirpy!
