Hello!

My daughter is turning two and we are having a party next weekend. I decided it would be nice to make her cake myself as well as some other cupcakes and tarts for family and friends coming to her party. I also will be making some mini cupcakes to share with her friends at playgroup. I’ve just realised that I’ll be making nearly 150 cupcakes in five different flavours and one gluten free. I need to think through my next bright idea a little more. Bake off starts on Monday with a crazy finale in Saturday!

  • Hope your bake off went good!! Ahh the joys of baking… I use to bake for my partner when he would leave for work DIDO. I would get up around 6am and start baking with everything ready by 11am. Sometimes I would bake a few things the night before. But he usually took 2 date loaves, 2 lots of muffins (so 24), brownies, chocolate cake and a double/triple batch of biscuits. Mind you he was gone for about 2 weeks at a time. But I love baking and spending time in the kitchen, so was quite easy for me =)

  • Just a tip – make the gluten free batch last and if possible, on the day they are going to be eaten. Gluten free baked stuff tends to go real dense and hard if left overnight.


    • thanks for the tip, baking the gluten free ones this morning to take this afternoon :) I’ve never baked gluten free before so appreciate the advice.
