November is Happy Birthday for Tea Time Treats:
Salted Caramel and Chocolate Fudge Birthday Cake Recipe
Can you believe it, ONE whole year has flown by in a flurry of cakes, pies, tarts, fairy cakes, jam, bread, brioche, pastries, buttercream, parkin, chocolate, custard, biscuits, cookies, fruit, cherries, icing, marzipan, scones, pancakes, berries and booze! Yes, it is Happy Birthday to Tea Time Treats, which is ONE year old this month! When I first thought of the idea a year ago, I had a feeling that it may prove popular, but the popularity of this monthly baking challenge has far exceeded my expectations, and Kate (my lovely co-host) and I would like to say a HUGE and HEARTFELT thanks to all of you who have joined in over the past year and made this challenge so successful. You only have to look at past round-up posts to see what an amazing array of recipes have been made, and all in the name of Tea Time Treats!
Here is a link to our very FIRST challenge last November: GINGER and BONFIRE TREATS and we had an incredible THIRTY FOUR entries, from Parkin to Cheesecakes and Bonfire Pies to Ginger Biscuits! So, what is the theme for our FIRST BIRTHDAY Tea Time Treats? Well, it can only be ONE thing, the theme is:
And, I have made my cake already, a BIG FAT Chocolate Fudge Cake with Salted Caramel Buttercream Icing, the recipe is below!
Kate and I are looking for any type of cake, BUT, a Celebration Cake would be WONDERFUL, and there will be a PRIZE for the BEST cake recipe and post submitted, the prize is a copy of Mary Berry’s Ultimate Cake Book
So, what are you waiting for, liberate those candles, and get weighing that flour and sugar, bake us a cake, and don’t forget, ANY cake is great, but a celebration cake would be FAB darlinks!
So, with a FLURRY of FAIRY CAKES, I officially announce that November’s Tea Time Treats Baking Blog Challenge is OPEN!
