HOORAY FOR FRIDAY!! I'm pretty jelly of those of you who are embarking on a 4 day bank holiday weekend!! I do have Saturday off which is a Brucy bonus, but sadly I'm working today, Sunday & Monday...so, to ease the pain I thought it only right to bake myself a nice big cake!!
So to inspire you on this lovely weekend - here are some gratuitous cake shots!
So I have an awesome new baking secret to share with you....
I followed my all time super favourite cake recipe, which I love to adapt - you can find it here. This time though - instead of battling with little cubes of 'softened butter'...I grated my butter into the sugar. Yep, I took my block of butter, and my cheese grater - and grated it in. It works SO well as it makes the butter super smooth and helps blend it with the sugar SO much easier. TRY IT!
For this cake I used my new piping bags & nozzles - I'm pretty stoked to give a batch of cupcakes a go! eep!
Now go and make yourself & your pals a nice pretty cake to enjoy this weekend!
