I've been cheating on you guys with my oven. I've been so busy whipping up some new recipes and revisiting a bunch of favourite ones that I totally neglected/was too busy eating it all to share them with you. I recently went through a bit of a brownie bake off sesh experimenting with some fun ingredients that include bacon, Baileys, Ferrero Rocher and cookie dough to name a few. Buttered popcorn cookies, the best chocolate cupcakes ever and nutella sandwiched oreos also feature below. I made myself some indulgent birthday scrolls, whipped up a cat cake covered in salted caramel buttercream & filled with smarties for a favourite feline loving friend and played around with a traditional rocky road recipe by adding one of the nation's favourite baked goods, the stroopwafel. Next weekend i'm baking up some cookies inspired by one of my favourite fabric designers...could you possibly (think giant poppies) guess who?
note for the blog title: i don't have a problem with betty crocker cake mixes (i used them every day in 2006) so won't judge those who do - unless you're donna hay.
