Introducing The Norfolk Cake House

AD | Brand ambassador Out of all of the people I know I think I would really struggle to find someone who doesn’t like cake. I am not the best baker and in fact, I’m really not very good at it but I love a delicious treat! Today I am so excited to introduce you to The Norfolk Cake House, a local company to me in North Norfolk, run by the very talented Laura Payne.

Cakes For All Occasions From Sponge

AD | Gifted When it comes to birthdays or any other special occasion I just do not attempt to make a cake myself. I have never been good at baking so I would always rather buy a delicious cake instead of asking people to even try one of my creations. I was recently introduced to a local company based in Holt, Norfolk called Sponge who are an online cake company. They kindly offered to send me a cake of my choice to try out! Sponge offer a really good selection of both cake flavours and sizes. You could go for

Mary Berry’s Austrian Chocolate Cake

My sister Natalie has spent the last few years living in London in pretty much one room and sharing a kitchen. Since she moved there she hasn’t really been able to bake too much and it’s something she really likes to do… and I like to reap the rewards from. So, when she came to stay at the beginning of December she broke out the cake tins and decided to bake! As Natalie will be living with us for a little while soon she already has a lot of her things here and that includes cook books and baking equipment…

5 Delicious Ways To Use A Bread Maker

I love kitchen gadgets and John will probably tell you we have too many. We have a tiny kitchen and only really have room for things we use a lot so multi functional appliances are a must have for us.

I never would have thought of some of the things you can make so here are 5

Buy A Gift: Sparkling Afternoon Tea For 2 Experience

A couple of weeks ago I spoke about Buy A Gift in the gift guide for travel lovers.

Afternoon Tea At Patisserie Valerie

Although I have had cakes from Patisserie Valerie before, it’s not somewhere I ever thought to go for Afternoon Tea. I’m not sure why! My sister came for a visit last week though and had purchased a Groupon voucher for Afternoon Tea at Patisserie Valerie in Norwich! Normally, this would have cost £25 but the voucher was £19, making a saving of £6. It’s not loads but at least it works out at less than £10 each. When we arrived we didn’t have to wait to be seated and instead just sorted ourselves out a table and high chair and waited for

Celebrating Christmas With Bakerdays & Giveaway

As someone who doesn’t like traditional Christmas cake, I find it hard over the festive season to find a cake for me. When bakerdays for in touch to let me know about their range of Christmas products I was super happy! There are so many options available for alternative Christmas themed cakes and I had such a hard time deciding which one I wanted to try. In the end, as John is a massive Star Wars fan, I decided to go with the Yoda letterbox cake. Although other sizes are available, the letterbox cakes cost £14.99 and are delivered via
