Did someone say cake?

16 May 2011

My friend Connie who is not only well on her way to becoming a Dr in Art History is a bit of a baking extraordinaire. Her blog which is aptly called Did Someone Say Cake? is FULL to the brim with her baking experiments. Yesterday she hosted a brilliant tea party in aid of Japan and well, I couldn't NOT take any photos to share the cakey goodness with you guys right?!

She has the most amazing collection of Baking books so you can imagine how impressive her cakes were. The Hummingbird bakery book is by far, the most awesome one she had, the photos inside are all so droolworthy!
Coffee table books?
I love a bit of kitsch and I loved her cushions but most of all, the fun flag she made for the Royal wedding. Brilliant!
Cute kitsch
Connie's Kate and Wills Flag
Now for what you've all been waiting for, the cake! She had baked a whopping 20 varieties and even though I arrived late, there was still plenty left!
lots left over...whoopie pies
Chocolate Whoopie Pies
meringue macaroons
Meringue Whoopie pies with Chestnut filling
calorific cake!
Chocolate, Chocolate chips and Cookie cupcake. Calorific but worth every bite!
tea
It isn't a tea party without proper tea cups and saucers!
group photo!
baked goodies
My friends and I left the tea party bursting with cake and our tupperware boxes filled with a selection to take home. Seriously, how pretty are they? What a perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon!

  5. 20 varieties of cake? I want cake, oh man I really want cake now. The cake with cookies and chocolate and chocolate cake and icing. YES! At this stage I would potentially sell an organ for one of those.

    Looks like you had an amazing time, and your friend is just fabulous!

  21. A tea party! I'd probably serve pink lemonade from such pretty tea cups, but I guess tea will do : ) What a great idea - plus it's given me some inspiration for what to bake next!

  41. Oh wow, she made all of that herself? Everything looks incredible. I do love to bake, but I'm lazy with it, especially considering I don't have all the baking equipment with me here in London (and whisking by hand is a pain). I do agree though that the Hummingbird Bakery book is gorgeous.
