I made a few rather relaxed new year resolutions this year. So far I’ve managed to keep them fairly well. I’ve been running. Once. I’ve eaten some fruit and vegetables. Quite a lot actually. I’ve limited the amount of sweet things I’ve eaten. Well, I have limited myself, but only after eating quite a lot first! Erm I probably haven’t lost any weight but let’s just forget about that resolution for now. After all, it’s not easy when my cake resolution conflicts with all those earlier ones.
You see, I’m hoping in 2015 to make more cakes and to attempt to decorate them. Well, here’s my first cake of 2015 – a soft moist orange cake with cream cheese marmalade icing. The cake was definitely a success. I would have eaten this happily with no icing on at all and not felt anything was missing. But then, as far as eating goes, I’ll always rank cake above icing.
