Right. Now that's out of they way, let me introduce you to my newest lovely friends, Cake Angels. They are responsible for a percentage of my ever-increasing waistline, as well as some gorgeous treats, which I'd love to share with you in person - except for the fact that we ate them - so pictures will have to do instead! Many pictures. You know me.
As you can see, this was a major hit - small girls, cake and sprinkles. All we needed was a unicorn or a special guest appearance from Sophia The First, and they would have actually exploded. There were marshmallows, many many chocolate sprinkles, a load of royal icing designs, all piled on top of the most delicious vanilla frosting I've ever eaten straight from the tub. Ooops. It was leftovers, that doesn't count.
I'm not sure I'd've paid for one of their cupcakes, but they were pretty pleased with themselves. (please ignore the look on my face, I am not the most photogenic of cooks)
Then came summer. And I still hadn't written this post, when through my door came some more goodies, including the most inspired Ice Cream Cone cupcakes I've ever seen. I used to work for a bakery, a long long time ago, and they sold ice cream cone cakes, but they were nowhere near as impressive as these.
We took to the garden, see, that's how you can tell it was summer. And Squeaky got on with the important task of cleaning out the bowl, while keeping a close eye on the kitchen timer. They really were so easy to make, I was demoted to reading instructions and dealing with hot ovens, while Chef Squeaky took over.
But even having lost my place in the cake-making pecking order of our house couldn't stop me trying to be arty with the finished product. The packet made six, but we'd slightly already eaten two when I realised it would be a good idea to take some photos. It was a hot day, ok?

And finally, if that wasn't enough cake for you already. Just to prove it's not all for children, and grown-ups can get the benefit of the Cake Angels' wisdom and sprinkles too, here's the cake I made for our office's Macmillan World's Biggest Coffee Morning.
Cake Angels Chocolate Fudge frosting, and milk and white chocolate hearts, sprinkled on top of a very chocolatey cake, held together with choc fingers. The purple glitter was edible too, but came from the back of my cupboard and had lost its label.
Cake Angels have a huge range of kits and decorating products to make your baking a little bit of heaven. Their website also has a load of recipes, so if you need more inspiration, or want to torment yourself if you're on a diet, there's something for everyone.
You can buy Cake Angels online, and I've also seen them in most supermarkets.
