No egg, no milk, no nuts

Boy oh boy....

Only for a friend do I do these types of cakes now. It causes too much stress in my own home! Ensuring all the equipment I use is safe, that all the ingredients have not come into contact with any of the "allergic" foods.... My greatest fear is that I get a phone call after the party telling me an epi-pen had to come out.... Hasn't yet and will not ever!

That said, I made this lovely "Butterfly" cake for VĂ©ronique who turns 10 tomorrow. I hope she's happy with it!

Ended up being a good thing to deliver it to the dojo... more of my business cards got distributed....

Finally... My first blog!

I've been wanting to do this for some time now... never seemed to find the right moment and wasn't quite sure where to start.

Enough procrastinating already! Just jump in!

This is where I will share my stuff with you! Whether it's one of my cakes, some new recipe I've tried (or created), some book I've just read or just a thought!

For now, I'll just introduce myself. My name is Dale, I am married to Mick and have two boys named Iain and Aidan.

Though I work in administration, my true love is cooking and entertaining. The more oohhs and aahhs I have when I showcase my goodies, the better! Sorry folks, I AM in it for the glory. What else would the point be? If there is no one to share it with, why bother?

So, coming really soon will be some snippets, photos and insights which I hope won't bore you to tears!
