Cookies Against Humanity

What could be better than Cards Against Humanity? Edible Cards Against Humanity. That's right - the card game in cookie form.

Before I go any further, I must issue a WARNING - if easily offended please do not read on!

FreeFrom Recipe: Fall in Vegan love

"A party without cake is just a meeting", stated the legendary Julia Child. If you're vegan, or simply intolerant to dairy, you'll need a cake at your wedding or special occasion as much as anyone else. I may have expressed before how passionate I am about ensuring that anyone can 'have their cake & eat it', regardless of allergies or dietary needs.

For that reason, I don't charge a penny extra to anyone ordering custom cakes with special dietary requirements at Little Miss Cake Maker, meaning that a 'FreeFrom' cake costs no more than my everyday cakes, and the same goes for corporate cakes and wedding cakes. So this brings me to share my vegan friendly, dairy free sponge cake recipe, which is originally sourced from the Food Network.

Have a Cakey Christmas!

Last Christmas I hadn't yet started running my own business and LittleMissCakeMaker.com was simply my hobby blog about baking. As part of this journey I discovered that cakes are definitely my area of expertise and pastry is not so much (hence the name). But of course, you can't celebrate Christmas without Mince Pies, right? Wrong! Mince Pie Cupcakes were born, out of the ashes of my pathetic pastry crumbs. Continue reading

Wake up and smell the sunflowers!

Sometimes in England you have to bring your own sunshine to the party - and I find these Oreo Sunflowers seem to do just the trick! I made these cupcakes a few years ago after a friend found a similar image online and challenged me to make my own version. Continue reading

Baking Bad...

If you haven't seen Breaking Bad yet, this cupcake theme probably means nothing to you - but if you're a fan, just try and contain your excitement.

I've had the idea of Breaking Bad themed cupcakes since becoming engrossed in the show before it finished last year. When I get a theme in my head I love finding an excuse to bring it to life - so when I have a lightbulb moment and figure out the best way to bring the design to life whilst making it as tasty as possible, it's only a matter of time before I just go ahead and do it!

The moment I knew I had to do it was when I realised I had this on my shelf:

Neon Sugar Sprinkles

Edible neon sugar - in particular BLUE edible sugar crystals - well I just had to get cooking!   Continue reading

Faringdon Bake Off 2014

Until this weekend, I'd never entered a baking competition before. I've been baking and sharing my cakes with friends, family and co-workers for a couple of years, but complete strangers judging my cakes was totally new territory - I had no idea how good or average they tasted to someone that didn't 'have' to like it.  Continue reading

Happy Birthday to meee!

This little blog of mine is officially 1 year old today, and how could I celebrate better than sharing cake with you all?!

Christmas is long gone and it's almost too late to start wishing people a Happy New Year by now, but we've still got box fulls of chocolates left over from Christmas. That's not to say that I don't love chocolates, because I do, and I've been devouring as many as possible every evening. However, we did get a LOT for Christmas to add to the stash we had already bought. So I've created the perfect way to get rid of them, in the tastiest, most enjoyable way possible. Continue reading

Holy Jesus, I've had an Epiphany!

This week I was involved in some Epiphany celebrations. While our celebrations may not have been religiously led, we learnt a fair bit about it through the format of quiz. My contribution of course, was to provide cake! Luckily that was more successful than my quiz results. Continue reading
