As you may know already, my blog celebrated it 1st birthday last weekend and there was only one way to celebrate … a birthday party with lots of CAKE and a brand new gorgeous LOGO.
I invited some of my friends and family round to celebrate, eat lots of cake, drink prosecco and get a sneak peak of my new logo.
Please excuse the empty plate .. I was waiting for the palmiers and swirls to warm in the oven …
On the menu was…
Mini egg millionaires shortbread
Beetroot, walnut and feta palmiers
Cheese and pesto swirls
I haven’t written a recipe post for all of these yet but I will be doing this over the next few weeks. Starting with my new favourite thing in the whole wide world, mini egg millionaire’s shortbread. Honestly …. heaven in a baking tin. I would say a close second place were the beetroot, walnut and feta palmiers.
I have never attempted to bake this much, for this many people before but I knew it was going to be a lot of work. So naturally I put a schedule together; any excuse to get my note book out and start ticking things off. I did the big shop on Thursday evening after work and then started baking about 7am on Saturday morning and hardly stopped until 1pm on Sunday afternoon. Even with Tim on hand as chief washer upper, it was a lot of work but I loved every minute of it … and there was only one small disaster (an overly runny cream cheese frosting that had to be thrown away and an emergency trip to the shops for more cream cheese).
I must say a special thank you to the amazing Petal and Posie who provided all the flowers. They were stunning, the icing on the cake.
Thank you to everyone who came and celebrated with me, I had a fab day. Hope you all enjoyed your take away goodie bags.
I also gave everyone a sneak peak of my new logo which is now LIVE on my website and social media. What do you think?
I must say a HUGGEE thank you to Jade who not only designed the logo, but printed and made cupcake toppers and recipe tags for the party. She also took all the photos … what a very talented lady indeed and handy friend to have 😉 Thank you so much Jade, you are THE BEST!
