Happy Easter!

I know I don't normally feature food but today I thought I'd show you What I Did Today!
The girls and I made Easter cakes, I piped some buttercream icing and put Cadburys Mini Eggs on top. 

I often find the pretty cupcakes I find in the shops with big twirly icing have quite heavy stodgy cakes; they look pretty but once you've worked your way through the icing they are pretty rubbish as cakes go.  The recipe I used for these cakes was my go-to recipe from Delia, this cake is so easy to make, tasty and versatile.  I use this recipe to make the girls birthday cakes and find it easy to cut and decorate and also to scale up and down.  Today  I just added cocoa powder to make it a chocolate cake and made half the quantity which yeilded 24 fairy cakes.  I've also added cherries and other fruit in the past. 

BTW- Do you like my new signature and watermark on the pictures?  Just trying to look a little more like I know what I'm doing!!!!
