Cakes for tea

Hello everyone

In honour of some birthdays recently (mine and my dear brothers, but no, we are not twins!) my lovely daughter put on her apron and got into baking mode

She is quite a talented baker, these were chocolate orange cakes, frosted with a homemade dark chocolate ganache, yum yum

all gone now of course!


PS while still on the birthday theme, there is still time to put your name in the hat for the Moonstruckcreations birthday giveaway - it closes on 20th January.  No, there wont be any cakes included - sorry ;)


  1. Those cakes looks very tempting - orange chocolate is just about the most perfect thing ever :)

  2. Ooh those do look yummy! What a clever daughter you have :-) I am going to attempt to bake a cake this weekend for hubby's 30th bday... wish me luck, lol!

    Hope u had a fabulous birthday (and your brother too)
