Honeywell Bakes Review and Giveaway Rebecca and Rosie Honeywell created Honeywell Bakes in 2012 after having much success designing and creating dessert tables. Having inherited the baking gene from their mother, it seemed natural for these sisters to use their Jedi skills for good, offering stylish [and beautiful] iced biscuit gift sets in addition to their bespoke dessert tables. The first thing you'll notice is the spectacularly beautiful web design. Fresh and modern yet with vintage notes. Not to mention the amazingly decorated biscuit sets and the beautiful photography by Rebecca … [Read more...]

Spring Blossom Buttercream Sponge Cake So… the award for "the worlds worst decorated cake" goes to…. Me! Since I'm going to show everything created on this blog, here's my so-called Spring Blossom cake. Everything went smoothly until decorating time. The buttercream even went relatively well (considering that I've only applied buttercream as an outer frosting to two cakes in my 30 years of existence).

It cracked a hella … [Read more...]
