I'm a BAD Blogger!!!

Hi All :)

I just wanted to let you all know that I'm still here! I haven't done any blogging for a little while - although I'm trying to visit my blogging buddies as often as I can!

I was planning on doing a big 'crafty catch-up' over the weekend - I've not done a challenge card for over a week - but it didn't work, I made a start on my 'Christmas' baking instead!
"What" I hear you exclaim...........

I love to bake cakes and over the past few years have accumulated quite a few people who place orders with me - so Saturday and Sunday I made 14 Carrot Cakes, 10 'Exotic' Boil & Bake Cakes (exotic cos they have papaya, mango, pineapple etc in them!), 12 of my very special and very secret recipe Chocolate Cakes - and those are to go with the Cherry & Coconut and Lemon Drizzle ones that I did the weekend before! Next weekend it's the Orange & Cranberry, Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chip and Coffee & Walnut! My freezer looks like Mr Kipling's!

I've been trying to think of some more flavours to play with, so maybe you could help me! Tell you what, if I go with your suggestion I may even send you one! Don't worry about the recipe - just tell me what flavours you think might be good for Christmas!


  1. Wow Carol, gorgeous cakes as well as gorgeous cards, I can't think of another flavour I'm far too busy drooling over the thought of a coffee and walnut cake
