    Unique Birthday Cake: Recipe

    As a real foodie it probably comes as no surprise that I love baking. But I had never properly iced a cake and decorated it, so with my boyfriends 25th birthday approaching. I started thinking about a Unique Birthday cake.  It needed to be his favourite – lemon. This was the easy part as I have developed quite a good technique for baking it. The second part of the challenge was it needed to be a Unique Birthday cake and something that reflected his passions and interests, I had the choice of making a car or going down the electrical engineering route.

    New York City: A foodie mission

    For years I’ve grown up watching American TV shows and films which filled my mind with some what stereotyped preconceptions about what food in the US is really like. So armed with these preconceptions, I started about making a must eat & drink list that I desired to complete before leaving New York.
