If The Shoe Fits… Eat It!

Jimmy Choo must be breaking out into a cold sweat right now… The stunning shoe pictured is tasty competition 😉 Yup, it’s a cupcake. Lovingly crafted by my own hands, with a lot of artistic direction from The Hampstead Cake Company, the scrumptious little creation features chocolate sponge, icing, sugar pearls and a Cadbury’s chocolate finger. Stilletos don’t come any sweeter than this.

Chocolate Cake With Orange Curd

I recently tried a birthday cake from the in-store counter at Waitrose. The supermarket brand makes cakes to order, including for weddings, but never did I expect to find a lusciously moist chocolate and orange invention ready to buy from their bakery section.

Priced at £21, this sinfully delicious sponge and buttercream layer cake includes lashings of orange curd and rich chocolate buttercream under a heavenly marzipan and chocolate icing.

My birthday guests asked for seconds, so they were clearly as enamoured as I was!
