FullSizeRender-2No words. Just Cake!

If you’re like me and quite indecisive (especially when it comes to cake), this is the perfect solution to all your sweet-tooth, cake loving, dessert obsessed problems! This is the definition of “Having your Cake AND Eating it too” I mean why choose one flavour, when you can have them all!

Having seen this on my favourite social platform (yes, Instagram) I had to screen shot it. I mean who wouldn’t want this saved on their phone and perhaps set as a screensaver?! Its like a dream come true; mouthwatering chocolate cake, drizzled with a rich chocolate sauce and it contains 5 of your 5 a day– amazing! Time to get sourcing ingredients and throwing the apron back on. #bake

Fancy some cheesecake? I did. For those with a sweet tooth or just a thing for desserts, you’ll understand what its like to have a craving, followed by the need to tend to it. Yes, mines was cheesecake and conveniently with the ingredients at hand; the Madagascan vanilla infused mascarpone and cream went down a treat, topped over a crushed digestive honey base. Yum.

With an addiction to cake, obsession with flavours and appetite to try new things, I baked my very first ginger cake. From a midday craving to an experimental loaf; I quickly found an intriguing recipe, took a trip to Tesco and gave it a go.

Compared to my regular home bakes; I’ve got to say; this one was an unusual one. With half the ingredients mixed in a saucepan then brought to a boil, egg-free and baked for an hour on a low heat, the sticky spiced ginger cake’s recipe seemed somewhat bazaar. Nevertheless, as new to me as the method was, the outcome was just as worthwhile. Yum yum yum!

A pause from the fashion trends, I decided to start a new trend. A sweet tooth, sugar rush, choco-holic kind of trend! After a year of feeling stressed, it was time to more than just “turn that frown upside down”, its time to start reading and spelling backwards. Did you know “desserts” is “stressed” spelt backwards. OOH YHH.

With this said, a few weeks ago I hosted my first dessert party. Full of cake, tarts, sugar topped ramekins and yep, more cake; it was a diabetic coma waiting to happen. As nice as all the desserts were, it was defiantly one of those days. A right -off (from diet) kinda day. Try fitting into a slim fit LBD, crop top or any summer-time-fine body cons now!

Breakfast at Tiffany's

Breakfast at Tiffany’s

A break in between my studies and a failed attempt to unfreeze my gym membership, I had a craving for oreo cake. mmm.

I’d never made it before but thought id give it a try. I’m glad I did, because I don’t mean to blow my own trumpet, but it was bludy amazing.

Pretty good for a first try and a made up recipe; if you ask me. I didn’t really know how to go about it, so as you do, I relied on trusty old Google. However, all i got was recipes that use ‘devils food cake’ mix, IN A BOX, (I mean what happened to eggs, flour, sugar and butter?) or I got regular cake recipes that just had a dollop of Oreo frosting on the top. I was not having that! So I just made a chocolate cake, added my crumbled oreos and melted chocolate and popped it in the oven. Admittedly  it came out looking like a massive cookie, but once I whipped together the best oreo frosting; from creme cheese, double cream, icing sugar, butter and of course Oreos, It was good to go! Well to be honest, only after I decorated it with yet again even more oreos (mini ones this time), then it was well and truly ready to GO! Cut me a slice (or two) and had it for breaky, whilst watching “Breakfast at Tiffany’s! #perfect
