Farmhouse Cake & Cherry Cake with @poptasticdave DSC06473

The l.h. cake was from Mary Berry age 40 Honey & Cherry cake made with half ground almonds & half pain flour to make it light.

Daves second cake was a Yorkshire TV 70’s farmhouse fruit cake, where ingredients are warmed in a pan first then combined. Massive quantities in the recipe hence he only brought half the cake !


Pigs in the Mud cake by Michelle.  Home made pink fondant piggies plus chocolate frosting and a choccy sponge cake . The fondant is a #GBBO special with marshmallows & icing sugar .DSC06474


Sugar free Carrot cake by Becky . Brilliant sugar free with spice, cream cheese & orange frosting, lots of grated carrot & almonds instead of sugar , plus lots of egg .. light as a feather .



Cow Pat cake   Chocolate sponge cake with ground almond & organic cocoa from Karen. Hot weather & ganache are tricky, so the topping had to be put back on the cake as it set & slid off !! DSC06476
