Lemon and Lots ‘n’ Lots of Blueberry Swirl cake (Dairy-free)

  Truth….I had a craving and it had to be lemon!  Light, fluffy, tangy, absolutely scrummy…’nuff said.

Summertime and lemon…do ya know of any better combo? (Whispers quietly, actually lemon any day of the year always hits the spot for me 😉 ). And now we have lucious blueberries in season so we get homegrown stuff which makes it all even better and tastier…ahhhhhhh

Plus, found out I need to improve my hand at ‘swirling’ things into cake. Read on to see how mine came out and promise not to laugh 🙂

I would also like a deep blueberry colour so that the white buttercream against it will have a deep contrast so add some purple colouring to the butter cream. Continue reading

A Pineapple Affair

So here it is guys, the pineapple post as promised.

I got a little boost of energy on Friday so decided to wonder down to the market for some fruits and veg. I was so burstling with IT that I even cycled to the market. Did all the shopping in superwoman style and was dead after. Couldn’t even look at the bike again so I humbly took the metro home (silently wishing it would stop right in front of my door so I wouldn’t have to walk the 100m to get home).
