It's been a cakey week...

 * Hello *

It has been a bit of a birthday bonanza here lately
Here is my week in cake...yes cake!

FRIDAY...Blueberry, lemon & almond cake

This was my birthday cake made for me by sweet B
It was absolutely amazing

MONDAY...Lime & coconut cake

This was my lovely Pete's cake of choice

TUESDAY... lemon drizzle cake

This was for my mum 
a little extra birthday surprise

She was so delighted

The roses are from the garden and they smell divine

THURSDAY... milk chocolate cake

This was for my lovely G to take to work
(well, work experience actually)
He has been at an engineering company for the last two weeks
It is run by a lovely friend of ours 
he had an amazing time and was quite sad to leave today
I made this cake to say "thank you" to all of the men
who have been really kind and helpful
lovely G came home with an empty box
he told me how they cut the cake into six, yes SIX pieces
and ate the lot in one go. Made me laugh

FRIDAY... ginger cake with lemon icing

This is for my father-in-law for father's day
but we are seeing him tomorrow
hope he likes it

and there we have it
I am well and truly caked out!

The garden is going bonkers at the moment
(must be all this rain!)
 last night I made a lemony chicken risotto 
towards the end of cooking added some sliced sugar snap peas straight from the garden
it tasted so fresh and summery and had a lovely crunch
for dessert we had strawberries and raspberries freshly picked
What a feast

My poor shop has been neglected 
while I have been making whoopee
(and cakes!)
I am hoping to get back into the swing of things next week
focus focus focus

Have a wonderful weekend where ever you may be

more soon
