sweet things

DSCN1115

There has been a bit of a sweet theme going on with my bunny making this week.

This is Lolly, so called because her skirt is covered in all sorts of lollipops and sweeties and her cardigan in knitted in what I like to think of as, jelly bean green!

This little lady is Callie Cupcake! Cupcake because she is covered in them and the name Callie comes from Greek meaning ‘beautiful’. Who wouldn’t want a beautiful cupcake??

I have one more little girl to finish and then they will all be listed in my Etsy shop next week. The last February girl will have a sweetness about her too!

As we’re on a bit of a sugar rush today, I thought I’d share with you what’s in my cake tin this weekend ~ Toffee Yogurt Cake, you can find the recipe in this post.
Simple, quick and delicious!

Thanks for visiting this week and for all your lovely, much appreciated comments.

I definitely feel this week that spring is just a little bit closer!

Happy weekend! 🙂

I really love a plain cake with just icing and coconut on top, there is nothing quite like it with a mug of hot tea!!!

The recipe for my cake is from this little book, one of the best baking books I own. The date inside the book is 1981, so I have had it all my married life!

As you can see, it has been very well used, its just a very practical no nonsense baking book and let’s face it Mary is one of the best. The book is open at the recipe for the cake I baked, now I was a bit wary of doing this because of copyright but this book can still be bought here and if you click on the ‘Look Inside’ you can find this recipe so I’m not showing you anything you can’t already look up! I would recommend this book and its very good value for money.

I’ll leave you with number six of the Valentine girls….Miranda, which means ‘worthy of admiration’.

Thanks so much for dropping by.

Happy weekend, fingers crossed for some sunshine! 🙂

It’s my boys birthday tomorrow, sadly he won’t be home from Berlin to celebrate with us but hopefully he’ll be home next month and we’ll celebrate then!
Happy birthday son!!!

Happy weekend! 🙂
