We’ve had a little break from the kitchen recently with lots of work being done on our Citroen H Van, so when we did get the ovens fired up, it seemed like a good idea to experiment with some new flavours…
PB&J - Vanilla Sponge filled with Raspberry Jam, topped with Peanut Butter Frosting Carrot - Carrot Cake (with oodles of raisins and walnuts), topped with an orange cream cheese frosting and a pecan Lemon - deliciously moist lemon sponge, with lemon drizzle and a lemon icing top. So much lemon, not enough time.
From left to right; PB&J, Carrot and Lemon…
The reports back from the lucky guys and gals that got to try these were positive, we too can vouch for their deliciousness. The Carrot was deliciously dense and moist, the Lemon was zingy and sweet and the PB&J was everything you need in a cupcake and more.
We also had a very special birthday. The actual Martha of Martha’s Tea Party turned a grand old age of 3.
Now any of you who either have children or have spent time with a nearly 3 year old will understand their requirement to get involved. So this bake is not representative of the standard of our usual cakes as we had two small hands assisting us and consuming bits as they went. But the end result was a delicious chocolate cake (made to our Chocolate Nostalgia Cake recipe), covered in sprinkles and Smarties, and one very happy 3 year old who got to eat some for breakfast (…and lunch and dinner).
We figured that a member of the wider team turning 3 was a good enough excuse to expand our Mosser Glass cake stand collection. So with a little girl who’s in love with pink, it seemed only right that we went with the 6″ in Tuscan Pink from The Hambledon, our local stockist (how lucky are we!). This is now available with 4″ cakes or to hire alone.
Lots of Love
Martha’s Tea Party x
