I’ve spent a lot of time in the writing cave this week. The good news is it’s been productive and my latest round of book edits are almost finished. The bad news: I haven’t had time to bake 😦
But then I looked at my Recipe Index page and discovered I’ve already posted 34 recipes on this blog! Who knew?!
So, as I don’t have a new bake to offer you, here are 5 of my favourites from the archives 🙂

1. Caramel Smiley Face Biscuits (aka cookies)
So easy to make and they’ll put a smile on everyone’s face!
This cake is so light and fluffy, you could almost believe it’s calorie free (spoiler: it’s not).
The two-tone icing didn’t work quite as well as I had hoped, but I was quite pleased with the mini rosette effect. Especially as it was the first time I’d tried piping this type of frosting pattern!
These are so easy to make: ordinary brownies mix + a box of After Eights (or mint chocolate of your choice!). The result is an extra chewy, minty brownie. Yum.
I admit I got a bit carried away when it came to decorating these! Making the shoes match the dresses was possibly taking things too far 🙂
I hope to be back with a new recipe next week.
In the meantime, for more cookie/biscuit, brownie, cake, muffin, cupcake and dessert recipes, please check out my Recipe Index page.
