O is for Obsession

Our names are Pamela and Ken and we have an obsession with cake.  That's right, we both have major sweet tooth's and indulge this when we're out and about on our days of fun.  Looking back over photos from the last few years and our blog posts, cakes feature an awful lot, so thought I'd share a bit of our obsession with you.

Whether it's in a posh cafe or in the middle of a field at a music festival, a cake can be the perfect thing to curb an obsessive craving for something sweet.

Technically not a cake, but had to include it as this ice cream sundae at Harrod's was incredible

The perfect accompaniment to a lovely piece of cake is a latte or, as my husband often prefers, a huge hot chocolate.

A proper afternoon tea is like the obsessives holy grail - endless mini cakes in all different shapes and sizes.

 Lovely cupcakes that are just a small piece of cake perfection.  At Christmas time, or any time of the year really, they can be decorated to look like whatever you like.

Due to this obsession, my fabulous husband bought me the perfect birthday present a few years ago - a cupcake making master-class.  This was the resulting  cupcakes at the end of the evening.

Now you may not have the same obsession with cake as us, but maybe I've wetted your appetite.

Until next time, be good, stay safe, and eat a nice big piece of cake.

  1. Wow! That's a lot of cake. I must say every piece looks good! I have a big book of nothing but cake recipes that I keep meaning to work through...might just have to start today. ;-)

    1. Hi Stephanie, hope you've managed to make some cake for yourself.

  2. Yummos! I just *adore* cake too. Unfortunately ye ole gluten allergy means I can't have most of them anymore. *cries bitter, bitter tears*

    And I'm with your husband: hot chocolate all the way!

    1. Hi dSavannah, hope you can find some scrummy gluten free cakes to enjoy with a big mug of hot chocolate.
