Weekend Baking!

11 July 2015

Hello!

One of my favourite things to do when I'm bored or just feeling a little out of sorts, is baking! I've mentioned this before in a previous "What I do when I'm bored" post and as this weekend was "one of those days", me and my mom had a little mother daughter bake off! 

Since we had quite a few ingredients to use up, we decided to make more than one cake and even some cupcakes for on the side. After 3 cook books and about an hour later, we decided on a plain Victoria Sponge cake with our own home grown strawberries (yes, we're that cool!) and then summer fruits cupcakes and plain chocolate cupcakes. Yummy, right?

Sorry I didn't take many photos of us making them but as you can see, they do look pretty gorgeous!
