Treat everyone to this warm and light chocolate Swiss roll. This one is filled with a chocolate sauce but you can fill it with cream and drizzle the sauce over the top if you prefer. Delicious!
My grandfather (Sam) was famous for this cake. He would always have some available for anyone who wanted it. We'll miss him, but his carrot cake legacy will always live on! Enjoy!
Be patient - this smells fantastic while it is cooking - wait until it has cooled before serving, though!
A traditional fruitcake decorated with marzipan balls that represent the 11 Apostles (Judas was excluded). Bake in a deep cake tin.
This is a light and moist cake that is not too sweet and has a refreshing green tea fragrance. The icing uses cream cheese but has enough sweetness to mask the sour taste. The matcha (green tea) powder gives it a delicate green hue too. This cake can also be baked as a in a 23x33cm (9x13 in) tin or as 2 separate round cakes in two 20cm (8 in) round tins. Adjust baking time accordingly.
I make these so they have a good kick to them, but it's not necessary. It's the icing that gives them the real ginger strength/flavour, the stem ginger is really just for texture. Lemon icing is a good substitute.
A simple and basic method of achieving professional looking cupcakes to enhance any party or social gathering.
This is the best recipe for jam and cream sponge cakes ever. Forever a crowd pleaser, people always ask for more. It's easy, it's quick and most of all, it's so yummy! Heads up, the mixture is not ment to be smooth like a normal sponge cake - no need to beat out all the lumps!
The aromatic lavender combined with soft honey flavours and toasted almonds give these cupcakes an intensity of flavour that is luxuriously decadent and festive.

A delicious basic cheesecake recipe that is sure to become a fixture in your baking repertoire. Top this cheesecake with chocolate, fresh berries, lemon curd or whatever you can imagine!
I make this cake as stress-relief for my exams (what with you geting to mash it together with your hands!) and I can guarantee that every time you make it it'll come out moist and (close-enough) perfect! I usually sandwich it with jam and chocolate butercream, but for a summer party you can't beat halved strawberries and whipped cream.
This light and luscious cake is reminiscent of what you find it the best European bakeries, and tastes incredible. It requires some time as the cake must be chilled well before slicing.
This is a rich and delicious three-layer cake that is studded with toasted pecans. Between the layers is a rich and creamy buttercream icing, with more pecans sprinkled in. A lovely special occasion cake.
A sumptuous and moist carrot cake, studded with sultanas and spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg. Instead of the usual cream cheese frosting, however, this calls for a light cream cheese glaze. You can use two 20 or 23cm round cake tins instead of the tube cake tin; simply adjust baking time as necessary.
A fun cake for birthdays or a cake sale that looks beautiful. This is a lovely change from the norm.
