Hello, my luscious bees! Yes, finally, after being busy with our new Kitchen, saying our final goodbyes to our four legged girls, and also dealing with a loss in my personally life, I'm now starting to get up to speed with my backlog of ideas.
Now he's up in all his Android glory! If I’m being honest with you, this is a big little cake. Took me a whole week (with all of my planning), but I do hope this recipe saves you some of this time. If you do try this one out, please let me know. I never normally ask - as I feel if you want to share you will - however for this one especially I would love to see what you come up with. I do want to make this cake again (perhaps a different color next time).
For everyone who does tag me, I'll be more than happy to include your cake at the bottom of this post, along with a link to your Instagram (after all... those who bake together, grow together).
That’s enough of me talking, Let's just get to the tutorial already haha!
Happy Sunday, my darling honey bees. Just one week to go until easter. It's mad just how quickly easter has come around.
Any way, I'll keep this one short and sweet. As I'm neck deep in baking... the madness!! So much baking to do, and so little time. Onwards and upwards. Cakes don't bake themselves!
You can do this cake over one or two days. I'd personal recommend taking two days: with your planning, prepping and baking on day one, then constructing your cake on day two. Starting with body, head, legs. arms and lastly feet (keep your offcuts for the arms, legs and feet). A template for the Teddy Bear to help guide you can be found at the bottom of this page.
Christmas Sherry Hot Toddy
Hello my bees, this little Hot Toddy recipe good choice for those cold winter nights, and is a very quick and easy to make. In my personal opinion, this drink will go great with any sherry cakes especially my Chocolate Marshmallow Teacake recipe, which is why I paired them together. You can also swap the sherry out for whiskey, brandy, or spiced rum.
Chocolate Marshmallow Teacakes
Hello my Little baker bees! I see you have clicked on an oldie but a goodie - my Nana's Chocolate Marshmallow Teacakes - which i'll warn you now: you will have a very hard time only having one. Of course as we are now in December I've added some red and green food coloring to give them a touch of Christmas (and, of course, a dash or three of Sherry and Peppermint Liqueur, which hits you a few seconds after your first bite).
