I've been wanting to write about this for some time but wanted to make sure it was all formal before l blabbed ;-) A while back l was asked by Planet Cake if l would like to come and train as facilitator, now for all of you that have not heard of Planet Cake they are the Rolls Royce of Cakes.
So as you can imagine I am over the moon, to be able to work with some of the top Cake designers in Australia is just a dream come true. I had my first day on Monday and was floating on a cloud.
I thought l would give you a peak of some of their work, They recently made a birthday cake for Rihanna who's touring Australia, below is a picture of her cake.

I love it when l see unwanted banana's in the fruit bowl, our family are quite the banana snobs. I know it sounds pathetic but we only tend to eat banana's with perfect skins, it often takes me a good ten minutes to find the perfect ones.
I stumbled across this recipe on the Cat Can Cook blog, they were simply titled "awesome banana muffins" and with 560 positive comments l couldn't wait to try them.
The muffins were delicious, and extremely light!

After baking for a whole week I wasn't going to do anything for Valentines Day, but when my last order for the week went out I was compelled to get back into the kitchen.
I've probably mentioned a million times that my family love anything with zest in them, so for something different l thought l would give them a double hit of both orange and lemon.
Sundays afternoon are always spent down at my mums house as apparently Will thinks the tea tastes better there ;-) We brought them along and Will and the kids greedily gobbled them all up barely leaving any for anyone else.
I got the recipe from Recipezaar, and just added the zest of one orange.
