Ginger Goodness, and Somewhere Over the Rainbow

So I've been a bit quiet on here lately, and it's mainly because a) things have been a bit hectic, and b)I've been thinking of some fun Christmas Recipes.

But in the meantime, let me show you what I've been up to in my kitchen recently.

I had two 'Mum Birthday' orders from school friends - one for 6 and one for 12. Both asked for something special, and both wanted something with ginger - nice and Christmassy.
I decided to do a classier spin on my standard gingerbread cake, so these have a golden syrup centre, with white chocolate icing, and chocolate accoutriments.

Both had very positive feedback, and I'd like to say thanks to orderers (especially Natalie who placed her order from Laaandaaan Taaaan!)

Also it was my boss's last week at work, as she's off to have her first sprog, so I thought I'd do something fun for that.
I've been waiting for AGES to try these out and they were just as amazing as I thought they would be.
Ladies and gentlemen - RAINBOW CAKES!!!

How cool is that?!?!? I love how you can see all the layers and they didn't blend! These were simple vanilla sponges, topped with fondant, a cherry and edible glitter. I wanted to something more amazing on top but I was short on time. Also, I can't believe I only took these two awful pics of them!!! Rubbbbbbish!

Anyhoo, more baking is planned this week will keep you posted...
