In week 8 Kaydee returned as our Studio Cake Saturdays baking extraordinaire.. you can see her previous bake here.

What I love about Kaydee is that she doesn’t really follow recipes, she just knows how to bake so follows her intuition and takes only a bit of guidance from a written recipe. I think that is super cool!

Proud baker!

Kaydee roughly followed this recipe but added her own special touches..

“The key thing I did differently is put the cake back in the oven for 7 minutes once I put the syrup on it. I don’t know if this does anything at all, but from making a few the best sponges were the ones I did this with”

Lemon cake
“The cream cheese icing was just me pretending to be a wizard, mixing random quantities of Philly, icing sugar and vanilla essence. In a school girl error I didn’t sieve the icing sugar so was somewhat devastated by presentation but hey ho it was a tasty cake!”


Love this little extra note from Kaydee..

“You can probably mention that I threw being vegan out of the window because I had icing envy after yours and Dan’s marvellous cakes and cream cheese toppings”

You can find details of cream cheese toppings made by me and Dan here.
