Celebration Cakes

I made a wonderful birthday cake for a dear friend, a grateful friend, a few days ago. I was all set to share the recipe and method with you today… And then technology let me down!

I blog from my mobile phone, not a laptop. I find that it’s a quick and easy way to fit blogging into my lifestyle. However all the photos I’ve taken over the last few days have been deleted from my SD card boo hoo…

This is the only photo I have of the chocolate sponge cake filled with fresh whipped cream and strawbwerries. It was delicious!


As i’ve just celebrated my first blog anniversary so I decided to bring all my favourite cakes to Angies for Fiesta Friday. It’s also #NationalChocolateWeek so all the recipes are chocolate cakes!

Chocolate and Cherry cake
This was a quick and simple pantry cake, with cherries from a jar!


Chocolate Berry Celebration cake
This gorgeous chocolate cake was smoothered in chocolate ganache before being topped with berries.


White Chocolate cake
This pretty white chocolate and orange cake was finished off with white chocolate cigarillos and fresh strawberries.


Happy Friday!
