I apologise. I didn't make a cake today.
Instead, I made 48 jars of jams and compotes to take to the Gerringong and Kiama Seaside markets this weekend. After all that jam I couldn't face cake baking.
But because I'm dead keen on a cake date, I thought I'd start us off with a few of my favourites.
If you click on the picture, you should link through to the recipe.
Sometimes I forget I've been keeping this blog for a little while now, until I go looking for old cake recipes and stumble over tiny baby Ivys and little toddler Tillys. Tiny tidbits of our days that I would have inevitably forgotten unless I wrote them down here.
So I'm very grateful that you are visiting, because if you didn't, I might not have kept on writing, and because I have I've got a written record of a whole lot of cake. Not to mention slices. And we haven't even started yet.
Hooray for cake!
I hope you enjoy it too.
