Remember me?? I make cake...
OHMYGOSH you guys, are you still there?!! I can't believe it's been so long but I promise- it was something I could not help. And something that is never likely to happen again and... pheeeewww...
What a whirlwind time March and April have been. To be honest I have no idea where that time even went. I am so excited about all the things I want to share with you, all the things I have been doing over the past few months, all the hush, hush and secrets and the lack of blogging.
I have been on a very exciting journey and it's one that I will share with you once I get the go ahead to do so (early May to be exact) but until then I will have to resume ordinary blogging, like its no big thang and just scooch back on up in here like I have never been away!!
But you know, as well as I know, that, that wouldn't be ok if I didn't come bearing some sort of "hey-guys-remember-me?" cake!
So I baked for you fine folks. My first, this is fun time baking, in a long, long while and I baked it with all of you in mind!
I got the figarry in my head for mildly spiced carrot cake with a honey cream cheese frosting and candied walnuts.
It's one of those spring time treats that is so good at any time of the day. It has the muffin feel to the crumb, soft and moist, perfect for breakfast. The sweet honey cream cheese makes it a delightful addition to afternoon tea and the candied walnuts add a sophistication, like that found in the evening meal! (Are you buying this? Naaah me neither!) Lets just say it's a great cake, very pleasant on the palate and you can eat it whenever you feel you want to! No judgement round these parts!
My time away has taught me one thing though;
I LOVE TO BAKE. And I especially love to bake for others. So making this cake with all of you fine folks in mind was a sheer and simple pleasure!
I am so glad to be back blogging. I am so glad to be able to have the time to hop on over to your corner of the world. I have so much catching up to do and for once I can not wait to sit down and have nothing to do but drink tea and read all of what you've been up to!
Here's to the resumption of normal!
