Happy 2014 Everyone
Feels good to be back in the kitchen after such a long break. I had such an amazing time over Christmas and New Year seeing my family and friends. And of course meeting my nephew who is literally the best thing ever. Its a strange thing to love a child so much that is not even mine. But he is the easiest little guy to love and it was tough to leave him, along with the rest of my family and friends.
So this year I have a few New Years resolutions, and for my baking it's to master a tiered cake. I don't get asked to do them as I have never done them before and they scare my slightly. Before I get to practicing this, I want to have a "spring clean" of my baking cupboard and use ingredients that have been sitting around for way too long.
First up for the year are some whoopie pies. I have had this jar of fluff in my cupboard for too long and who doesn't love a whoopie pie. They may slightly ruin a few people New Years resolutions for healthy eating, but hey, they are delicious and perfect with a cup of tea in a cold January!
