{Delicious} Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too?

Soooo, this probably, maybe, definitely isn’t likely to be the best help for any health new years resolutions you have made in the last few days but this was just too pretty/delicious/cute not to share.

33 cakes

Buzzfeed has compiled 33 of the best cakes you are likely to see in a while. You can find the link here -> Buzzfeed – Cutest Cakes of 2013

There is everything from cheesecakes to ombre to gummy bears.

As they say, “If you ever doubt that the world is a beautiful place, just remember: We’ll always have sugar, butter and flour”.

Happy sugar loading Nesters!

Cake Star!

You know how some people are great bakers who can make their children’s birthday cakes without really trying and they look like they came from a Donna Hay magazine? Well, then there is other people (read: me).

I love trying and my last effort was a Woman’s Weekly carousel cake for my toddler-bird’s 2nd birthday. To make a short story even shorter, the story goes a little like this. Mumma-bird finds wonderful carousel cake. Mumma-bird completely massacres structure. Mumma-bird learns that structure is important. Mumma-bear then yells profanities at her little sister (who by this time clearly regrets offering to help) and demands papa-bear come home with his angle grinder and sanding disk to resurrect mumma-bear’s disaster. Mumma-bear then finally finishes ‘cake’ amongst swear words and metal shards. Thinking back, probably not what Mrs Woman’s Weekly envisaged when sharing beautiful carousel cake recipe.

So when I find someone who is talented and clever at making cakes, I rejoice. Cakes by Katrina Tobin is somewhat of a saviour for mums like me whose greatest achievement today was making my toddler-bird a gourmet sandwich (okay, it was a vegemite sandwich, BUT it was on grain).

Katrina Tobin is a star. She makes cakes for all types of occasions and is contactable on 0438 442 028 (note to self: put on speed dial).
