Adorable mini cupcakes, beetroot and chocolate cake with beetroot coloured icing and candied rose petals and rhubarb and ginger cake with yoghurt icing and crystallised ginger.


I’ve decided I don’t do nearly enough exercise, it’s a beautiful day and I somehow convinced a couple of equally silly people that skipping (jump rope) in the park is a good idea so that’s what I’m off to do now. I’m taking the camera! I wonder if I remember any of the rhymes?

Lightweight cowls

Lightweight cowls are the perfect alternative to a shawl or scarf when you want to be able to toss something on quickly and know it will stay in place. I’ve really enjoyed designing them over the last few years and now have a few options to fit different styles.
