Baking made simple

Creating a last minute surprise


I’ve always loved baking for my loved ones and people at work.
When I think of baked things it reminds me of joyous times like celebrating occasions to simply hanging out with friends. Bringing out a cake always brings an exciting thrill through the air and smiles all round. Wouldn’t it be great to achieve this without having to do much work 😝

Whenever I bake I always mix up extra mixture so that I can get enough mixture to make an extra cake. Once cooled wrap the cake well in foil and a plastic bag. And pop it in the freezer. If you have a last minute event or friends popping over. Defrost it the night before. Mix up my favourite chocolate and coffee mascarpone frosting. Ice it with with a beautiful lined effect, you don’t even need a spatula if you don’t have one. I use the handle of my grater. If you have some fruit in the garden or house. Place it on as decoration. 🤗 you have a wonderful cake without lots of extra work.

The extra layer I had was from the coffee cake mixture I was making for a tiramisu layer cake.



Be creative and have some fun, teasing your friends that you’ve been at it all morning!

  1. Hi Tanya, this cake looks amazing. I also tend to have an extra sponge cake layer all wrapped up in my freezer. It really helps !
