As someone who is half British (and from Australia!) a lot of what I have eaten and loved growing up has English roots. I particularly love British desserts… treacle, scones, golden syrup dumplings… and parkin! It truly is one of those cakes that makes you feel warm and happy inside. I know it was hard finding treacle and golden syrup in America but I know you can get it online - try Amazon!

Cake Pops | Bakerella
So… I bought a cake pop machine. Yikes. It was one of those moments where my impulse buying over-rode my sensibilities. Anyway, I now have a cake pop machine so I’m going to embrace it! Bakerella has always been my go to for cake ideas and I’m not positive about this but her’s was the first place I ever saw cake pops. She makes truly amazing versions like the bluebird ones above. I think I’m still at the beginner phase because mine seem to drop off of the stick! Oh well, practice makes delicious cake pops! Does anyone else have a machine or has made pops? What are your tips and tricks?
How To Decorate A Dotty Cake | Manhattan Craft Room by Brett Bara
My niece’s birthday is a fortnight away, and even though she’s having a party on Sunday, her birthday is on Saturday so I really want to make her a special cake for her. I love traditions, and I think making this fr her birthday each year would be lovely - I could even make the dots in different colours! But I quite like the pastel colours in this one. I will have to practice doing dots before attempting a whole cake - unfortunately I’ll have to make quite a few cupcakes to be able to do that!

How cool are these?! You bake the cake in the lemon. You cut out the filling of the lemon, fill it with batter, tie together with twine and bake! These would be fun for a dinner party - not only delicious but a real conversation starter.

Pineapple upside down cake is so old fashioned, but it’s still so delicious. There’s a reason why classics are classics! If you haven’t ever tried it before, do it, because it’s like eating a warm hug. Um, that sounds weird. But you know what I mean! It’s comfort food, especially with lots of cream.
