I have pondered and thought about whether I should write this for some time…
When I began this blog, I never had any idea what direction it would go in, but I just found the whole cake / bake phenomenon so interesting (and yummy), and I could always appreciate a good cake! My love of cake stemmed from childhood, but my true joy of baking has really come into play in my adult years. So I began this blog to chart my cake journey chronicles, and it has opened my eyes and mind to more than I ever expected.
However instead of my enthusiasm and interest in cakes dwindling – it has only got bigger, and my desire to get better at baking has only increased. So now I’m at a stage where there is so much going on life-wise and cake-wise, and whilst I would like to continue writing this blog, I’m very aware that I lack the hours and energy to maintain an up to date record of all my cake delights and findings. So I’m going to continue my cake quest through other social media: instagram (@Reas_Bakes) and Facebook (Rea’s Bakes facebook page).
Thank you for reading my ramblings over the years, and I hope you have enjoyed seeing samples of my cake escapades!
Love & Eat Cake!
So I’m finally taking the plunge (more like a dip) and offering my cake making services to friends and family…
As many loved ones keep saying that I should let more people taste my creations, I have agreed to start making cakes that others (outside of the inner circle) can also enjoy! I am offering the selection above, plus any other new flavours that I bake-up in the coming weeks. I am also happy to create new flavours with any interested parties!!
So I’m basically telling everyone that whatever the occassion (birthdays, congratulations or good luck) – Say It With Cake (By Andrea) 😉
It was that time again, when we don’t need an excuse to enjoy cake…
The plan was to visit Forest Gate local – Coffee 7 this time. However on a stroll in the sunny climes before meeting the Cake Clubbers, I came across this secluded and very inviting cafe across the road –Familia Cafe! So the club made the decision to take advantage of this little place, where they promised we could lounge in the garden, while we sampled their sweet homemade treats!
The cafe did deliver as promised a tempting and well presented spread of cakes, brownies and muffins. The small garden provided the perfect escape from the generic hustle of the main road, and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. I chose the carrot cake and red velvet cake, and others opted for the cheesecake and meringues. Although there wasn’t resounding cheers for everything chosen, I was very happy with my choices and even got treats to go!
It was a lovely find for a sunny day, and everyone was pleased with the location – definitely somewhere I would go again!
