Cutting + sticking + sewing + baking. My creative life.

Mother’s Day Baking

Haven’t baked for a while as most of the residents of my home have been training and watching their intake of refined carbs!  I missed baking and decided to add some baked goods to my Mother’s Day gifts for my Mum and Mother-in-Law this year.  I made my Mother-in-Law Nigella’s chocolate cheesecake from ‘How to be a Domestic Goddess’.  The aroma as it came out of the oven was divine.

 Decorated with marzipan hearts.
One of the core beliefs I live by is that everything can be improved with Cellophane.

I made my Mum chocolate shortcakes with a peanut butter filling from ‘Home Sweet Home’ by the Hummingbird Bakery.
 The first time I’ve made an American shortcake.

 Again with the Cellophane.

Hope you had a happy Mother’s Day.
Love Melanie x
