INTRODUCING MS RED VELVET, ALL THREE TIERS OF HER…


A rather quick post from me and one that doesn’t really need much chat (you’ll be pleased about that….). Introducing Mymonkfish’s wicked three tier red velvet sponge cake with cream cheese frosting made especially for the lovely ladies (and the odd gent) of the ‘Edinburgh Cake Ladies’.

MR PREDICTABLE’S ROYAL BIRTHDAY SPONGE…

A very quick baking post while we’re perhaps still in ‘Royal Wedding’ mode! In true  Mr Predictable style my other half decided to share his birthday this year with the much anticipated marriage of Wills and Kate, honestly, the gall of the man!  So, in true Mrs Monkfish style I thought I’d better whizz him up a home made birthday cake to celebrate the whole affair.  Continue reading

MAMA MAMA MIMI AND HER GLORIOUS BAKEHOUSE


Of late this blog mostly seems to have been about cake….OK OK, I hear you, it’s been ALL about cake – so I thought I’d finish the ‘ongoing theme’ off nicely (for a while) with a review of Mimis Bakehouse, the new ‘cake kid on the block’ down in lovely sunny Leith.

NIGELLA AND HER FESTIVE TOP COAT…

Another master baker….

Well, it looks like I’ve started something down on Ferry Road, how exciting!!  Yes bloggers, my life is that boring (well, not really, just a shame that work gets in the way quite a lot of the time…) that the sniff of knowing other people at work enjoy food as much as me gets me all enthused and eager with anticipation of what they have knocked up/thrown together in their own kitchens!

Another master baker has come forward with this lovely offering….coconut and lime cake….

Mr McP's coconut and lime cake!

This particular master baker is Mr McP, one of my lovely blog fans and his cake is ‘yum’…. (apparently)….. having said that this master baker failed to bring any leftovers to the office so I’ll have to take his word on the matter.  Mr McP, top tip for next time, make sure you bring me in a slice and then you’ll be promoted to my number one fan (Kathy Bates stylee!).  😉
