Experiements in Cakeland

This week has been all about cakey experiments!

It’s just over 2 weeks until i leave for my 460km charity bike ride from London to Paris, raising money for the British Legion as i go. I have been busy baking in order to make the final push on fundraising. So there have been lots of poppy themed buttercream cupcakes have been coming out of the kitchen at Cake Towers.

I have also been practising cakes that can last for longer than a few days so that i can send them to my brother when he goes to Afghanistan that same week. A test batch made the journey this week to a friend who is out there at the moment and i am pleased to say that they made it OK! They travelled without buttercream, packed tightly with popcorn to keep them still in transit and by all accounts were well received and still yummy when they arrived! Yayyyy!

I have also had some updates from a friend in Melbourne today which is looking like it will be my first stop on my adventures.  It’s all go and it’s still all cakey!

This weekend sees some not so exciting paperwork and planning but these little things have really brightened my day. One step further on the journey to living my dreams in 2014 onwards!
