2nd order after success of New York Cheesecake

Sorry for the spelling mistakes in my previous post - blogging doesn't work so well from the iphone!

I am most definitely caked out this week! From Saturday - Friday i have made a giant cupcake, 24 normal choc mud cupcakes, a Cherry Ripe mudcake, and a New York cheesecake.

Poor Dave set the rule when we moved in together that he would do all washing up as i'm terrible at it and he has suffered badly this week. Is a great ploy fellow cake bakers - if you have a partner who is a little bit of a neat freak and likes things perfect - pretend to be terrible at washing up and sooner or later they'll ban you from it! It'll save you so much time in the kitchen and you can get on with more baking!:-)

I think it is time we got a dishwasher though...

Anyhow.... this Cherry Ripe mudcake is amazing and would go excellent with Bounty bars too! Takes a while to cook and cool but ultimately is fairly simple and is so moist and has hidden Cherry Ripe pieces in the sponge. I made this for a friend at work whose favourite chocolate is a Cherry Ripe - great success in the office!

But i didn't stop there and made my first New York cheesecake for our 1st BBQ at our new house as it is one of the guest's favourite. Another success - absolutely thrilled! Bomb site in the kitchen though but not my problem!

And from that i have my second order - 24 pink cupcakes for the guest’s daughters first birthday! Can't wait to get baking again!

Now what shall i make this week...?

First order for Cavey Cakes!

I made a giant cupcake last weekend for a friends birthday- I will attach a pic soon!

Today I had a request from a woman at work daughters 18th birthday party! My first ever order how exciting!

Only problem is I'm not sure how to transport the giant cupcake into work for her to then carry back home...

For las weekend I used my cupcake courier with the inserts removed (amazing cupcake carrier everyone should have one!!) but as I'm not attending this girls party I don't feel comfortable parting with it- I should have to if I do this regulary!!

So I'm on the search for a cardboard cake box that will fit this large giant cupcake!

I'll let you know how I go!!

Introducing Cavey Cakes!

Coming soon....
