Teatime Treats gets all Romantic

Blog posts have been thin on the ground this month, as February is also Thing-A-Day month. Last year I cut a Kirigami heart each day. This year I'm making something handmade each day to be sold at a charity craft fair on the 9th March. So there is a lot of making going on! And each day there is a mini Thing-A-Day blog post, which means that time and energy for real blog posts are very low!

But, enough excuses and onto the cake!

I finished this cake last night and today it was a prize at my work for a fundraising quiz.

I used the same recipes I have previously posted for lemon and almond cake with white chocolate icing, and the icing technique I learned from this tutorial by i am baker.

I was much admired and photographed in the office and left a fair few folk sorely disappointed when the competition results were announced!

Anyway, I thought it would be perfect to enter into February Tea Time Treats - an monthly blogging event hosted by Karen at Lavender and Lovage, and Kate at What Kate Baked. This month it was Kate's turn, and the theme was Romance. If a whole cake-full of swirly white chocolate buttercream roses doesn't scream romance, the I don't know what does!


  1. Oh wow. The icing is truly remarkable and so adorably romantic. I'd never have the patience or steady hand for this kind of thing. Amazing!

  2. How beautiful is that - I particularly love the 3 pink roses amongst all the white.

  3. Aw - thanks guys! It was lots of fun to make :o)

  4. Swirl cakes make my knees go weak; they are so beautiful!
