Julia Child Chocolate Almond Cake'

Better late than never! One month late I finally made my Julia Child inspired dessert. The cupcake book club will be back on track next week. I can’t wait to get back into the habit of reading again. Back in the UK I would get most of my reading in on my commute to work. I’m still too afraid to take my eye off the ball, or rather let my mind wander when it comes to the trains in America! After the great train debacle on my first day I’ve been consumed with getting on and off the right train everyday that I’m too stressed to read my kindle on the journey.

I just barely managed to survive my first week back at work. Even though I’m doing the same job as I was in London I wanted to make a good impression with my new office mates in Connecticut. Last Monday I got up nice and early and had Alex drop me off at the train station. I had studied the train schedule the day before and bought my ticket in advance. So I get on the train at the right time and it’s only 2 stops and about 15 minutes to Stamford. After about 20 minutes has elapsed I start to panic! We haven’t made any stops! I whip out my phone and check Google Maps. The little blue dot shows that we’re all the way to Greenwich, which is already way past my stop. I ask the guy standing next to me where is the train going and he said, “oh this is the express to Grand Central”.

Classic Yellow Birthday Cake

Classic Yellow Cake

While I was in the US it was my sister Kayla’s birthday! Even on vacation I manage to find time to bake :) I told Kayla that I would bake whatever she wanted. I tried to temp her with cheesecakes, amazingly tall layer cakes, birthday cakes in jars but in the end she decided that I could not sway her with my pretty Pinterest boards, she wanted a classic birthday cake.

I know a cake is a winner when I get one slice and the rest mysteriously disappears! I made this cake in a pinch for a Saturday night after I had an epic fail with a pumpkin coffee cake. Such a simple cake but It’s one of my new favorite recipes.

Sideways Rainbow Cake

Sideways Rainbow Cake

This is probably the most beautiful cake I’ve ever made and I didn’t want to serve it. I had to fight the urge to keep it hidden in the back of the refrigerator. I just like looking at it. It instantly makes me happy, I mean who doesn’t love rainbows?

Berry Burst Oreo Cake

I’ve been blogging for just over three years now! I can’t believe how fast three years have flown by. The last week in March was my official 3rd birthday but I didn’t get this typed up in time. I started the blog just a few months before Alex and I got married. Looking back I’m not sure how I squeezed in wedding planning, work and starting up a blog all at the same time.
