Happy Halloween!! These iced cookies are chocolate orange flavour, recipe from my biscuiteers book which I have been meaning to bake from for ages! They were really tasty, a bit like an orangy bourbon biscuit. I used royal icing to decorate in a spooky fashion!

These deliciously spicy gingerbread cupcakes are sooooo scrummy, they are definitely going to be in my Christmas collection this year. A much lighter sponge than last years attempt and they have a totally gorgeous lemon cream cheese frosting. I topped these with my Mickey sprinkles I bought in Florida, been dying to use them! I'm getting really excited about christmas cakes, I have plans to make my mince pie cupcakes again (oh brandy buttercream frosting, how I love you!), these were a roaring success last year! I also have a recipe for egg nog cupcakes which sound amazing! Plus I'm hoping to make a giant christmas cupcake, if it turns out how I imagine it in my head it will be fabulous!!

Oh my... this is a contender for favourite cake EVER!!! I love this so much I was a little bit sad to see them go! Five mini minions for a Despicable Me fan. I love how each one is different, their little faces are adorable, all huddled round a fondant banana!
My first giant cupcake! I've been dying to make one since I got the tin so when I was asked to make a Winnie the Pooh cake I thought it'd be ideal. Super cute for a 1st birthday! The figures & honeypots are made from sugarpaste. I had to make Winnie the Pooh 3 times to get it right! I think he looked great! I covered the base with peachy pink fondant & the top with sweet buttercream rose swirls. I can'y wait to make another!
