What delectable sweet treats!
Cake always tastes so much sweeter when it's in aid of charity.
After a magical holiday at Beaches Resort, Ocho Rios, Jamaica last year and an initiation into the wonder that is Sesame Street, I wanted to incorporate my kids' favourite characters into my eldest son, Oliver's 6th birthday party on Sunday.
I can't believe I turned 35 last Monday! Whoop the whoop! It's only just over a week in but so far, so good people!
This recipe might be gluten-free but let me start by writing they're not calorie free sadly however I've used honey instead of sugar and high quality cocoa powder so they really are a pretty healthy treat that won't skyrocket your blood sugar! As it's Valentine's Day, these really are a perfect offering for a loved one, your kids included of course, or simply for yourself (self-love is important too you know, hey shush you naughty ones at the back!) So, what you waiting for? Go get your bake on and treat yourself...
This Sunday I turn 34 and on the 10th my blog turned a whopping 4! Honest Mum was officially born on the 10th of November in 2010 but like to celebrate my very FIRST POST along with my birthday!
We hosted Papa G's birthday at our house yesterday for an early dinner that saw me hitting the sack before my guests left (what a lightweight)!
I was asked to share Kate Garraway's Rudolph Red Velvet Cupcakes for Tasty Tuesdays and I think you'll agree they look fabulously festive, perfect Christmas Eve fun with your little ones!
As the weather (in Leeds at least) has gone a little grey, we've been cooking up Papa G's delicious and oh so easy Greek lemon & poppy cupcakes (Greek by the fact we use yummy Greek yoghurt).
It seems that as soon as kids start school or preschool in my case, another holiday crops up and I'm responsible for the entertainment. I'm not sure we can have another week sponsored by Cbeebies after doing nothing but watch the box and nurse colds over Christmas, so in spite of the weather I'm hoping to get the boys out and about!
