I just found out that it’s National Cake Week! Being a dessert loving food blogger, this is practically a national holiday to me and intend to spend the week celebrating it. If you’re joining me, I’ve assembled three cakes that you really should be baking this week.
I’ve tried to bake boozy mini cupcakes before but they completely exploded – you try filling a 2-inch cake case to two-thirds! This full sized gin & tonic cake by Victoria Glass at greatbritishchefs.com seems much more my style.
If you’d rather pick something up than slave over it in the kitchen, I don’t blame you, especially in London. Pop by Ottolenghi to start (you might be a while, would you look at that display!), then pick up a Hummingbird Bakery cake from one of their many branches, and get home as quickly as possible to devour everything without getting frosting on your lips – try it I dare you!
Happy National Cake Week!
