#tbt to when I made @jowheatleybakes strawberry coconut cake. Moist deep moist vanilla sponge studded with strawberries and topped with jam and coconut. A slab served with a cuppa on a weekend is my idea of bliss.

What a crazy few days! I’ve decided I want to move house! Goodness knows where or how I’m thinking I’m going to afford it but ....... I don’t care! I want to move!! Just been flicking through Instagram and saw this gorgeous pic from @itslittlelauren and i am in love!!! Check out her page, it’s beautiful! .
This beaut of a photo is from my brandshoot @blovedhive with the very fabulous @helenwarnerphotography.
I love how clean it is, letting the pretty do all the talking!
I’ll be making 82 of these yummy doughnuts for S&M’s lovely barn wedding on Saturday.
On Thursdays I Bake | Isn’t it amazing how easily we can talk ourselves out of, or into, something? I have been thinking over the course of this last week that my Thursday baking is a silly idea. I’ve got so much else I should be doing and the time that I am taking to imagine and then create something each week could be spent doing so much else. We’ve also had a pretty rough week in our house and I am starting to wonder if the cycle of unwellness that goes between Henry and I will ever end. I’ve also wondered so often as to why I find being a Mum so complex….. other Mum’s have way more kids, work in full time jobs and seem to have a much better handle on everything than I do. And I am so frequently reminded that I used to have so much more courage and determination… to just get things done. I chatted a little bit about this, this morning with my gorgeous friend @letssitlooselywiththat and she asked me if I loved doing the Thursday baking and of course I answered yes. Because I do. She let me know that she looks forward to it and it has got her back into the kitchen. She said, because of you, so did I. And then she said to me, don’t you dare stop. So with grit and grace and a little ignoring of our washing mountain I settled on making @notquitenigella Strawberry Tarte Tatin. And here she is xo.
Awee all the feels for @eatdrinkloveleeds
for thier awesome review of our afternoon tea! Thank you ladies and so glad you had a wonderful afternoon ♥️ #Repost from @eatdrinkloveleeds with @regram.app ... SUNSHINE BAKERY
What are you going to do now that World Cup is over?... Go for lots afternoon tea obvs!! And @sunshinebakeryca in Chapel allerton is THE cutest, quintessentially English place to do it. Packed with cake and character.
It’s is super dinky tiny, so defo best to book a table. Don’t let the size deceive though it’s like Mary Poppins handbag, packs a lot into a tiny space. It’s quite a lot for the eye to take in at first, the walls are splattered with paintings, signs and all odds and sods. The antique tables and chairs complete the look. It has also has a small outdoor seating in the fairy tail style garden round the back 🌸 🌺 which is just as pretty, quirky and colourful as the inside!
We were seated outside, told what the afternoon tea included and to make our orders inside. I expected the sandwiches and cakes to be in dainty small potions... nope! Which was a pleasant surprise, as you can see from my massive scones 😆. TIP: LEAVE ROOM FOR THE CAKE!! Don’t worry tho if you can’t manage it all they can also bag it up what you don’t eat. Food and drink were beautifully presented in/on miss match glass and floral bone china. Everything tasted just as good as it looked but my fave was the Oreo brownie 👌🏽. Service wise we had couple of order reminders (probably due to busyness) but on the whole very friendly attentive. They even let me test out a new Frappuccino!
Definitely recommend this independent little cafe, even if it’s just for a cuppa and a cake. Afternoon tea is perfect for a girls catch up, maybe not one for a first date - could be a bit too kitsch for some lads.
