Baking Barbie

Very little knitting has been going on, so instead, I thought I'd share what I have been up to - baking!Above is a Malteser Cake (Nigella Lawson recipe from Feast) that I made for my friend Georgie to thank her for all the support she's given me over the past few months.

Below is the Simnel Cake I made my Mummy for Mother's Day (again Nigella/Feast), as I discovered its a traditional Mothering Sunday offering and she LOVES marzipan!
And then, partly inspired by Piglottie who just made a load of chocolate cup cakes, partly desperate to make something kitsch and partly to lavish some attention on someone special, I made these beauties!
And as you can see, took a lot of pictures of them. They are Nigella Lawson's Love Buns, but this time not done with heart sprinkles for Valentine's Day, but with Barbie sprinkles for an academic conference.
Are they the prettiest cakes you've ever seen? I think so!

I think they are the prettiest cakes I've ever seen and I think Barbie sprinkles are just what (some) fusty old academics need :)
