Tradition dictates that you should save the top tier of your wedding cake for your firstborn’s Christening and for Little A’s big day that is exactly what we did. Rejuvenated from its big freeze, our top tier looked surprisingly sprightly and if fruit cake is your thing then it was pretty good.
For babe no.2’s big day and out of fear that my oven might produce something resembling a biscuit rather than a cake I took to the shops to find an alternative. Thankfully for me (and our guests) the genius bakers at Hummingbird Bakery stepped in to save the day. We chose the personalised Rabbit cake (£75 for a 10″cake to serve 18-20 people) and ordered the matching cupcakes to hand out to the littlies coming. The vanilla sponge was incredibly light and moreish and it was so generous in size we were still eating it days later. As I am no Nigella and if I can escape Mother’s Guilt, I will certainly be ordering Little B’s first birthday cake from HB – just check out their Rainbow cake (£39.95 for an 8inch cake serving 12). Also worth looking at their giant red velvet Cupcake one for a fun dinner party pud.
