I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas

But my mom-in-law wouldn't be too happy with that! Not that she's against snow, just not happy about the idea of freezing her toes off while they're visiting us from sunny South Africa. 

Snow or no snow, I love Christmas. And I certainly love spreading festive cheer, especially if I can spread it with baked yumminess!

I've made my first official Mandy Bakes video for you to enjoy. Learn how to pipe cute frosting Christmas trees by following this link

And if you want a cupcake to go with that? Why not try these moist and deliciously spiced orange drizzle cupcakes.

Banana + Pecan + Cinnamon = Amazing Muffins

Give those sad looking bananas a proper send off by using them to make these delicious banana pecan muffins. Topped with a crunchy cinnamon streusel, these are a great way to start the day or fill a hole between meals. 

These are super quick and easy to make and one of my favourite recipes.

Hot Cross Bunnies!

Yes, it's that time of the year again. It's Easter, and for food that means Spring lamb, chocolate eggs and Hot Cross Buns!

This recipe is so easy that I might be making them every weekend until my husband gives me pleading eyes for something new, lol :) A great recipe to start dabbling with the dreaded ingredient of yeast!

Pillowy soft buns lightly spiced and with juicy bits of sweetness from plump raising and sultanas. Eat them fresh out the oven or toasted and slathered with butter, this recipe is just amazing.

An apple a day

Even in cupcake form? Well, we can pretend that these moist, sinfully decadent apple cupcakes would be considered as one of your 5-a-day ;)

Moist sponge with small chunks of apple, spiced with cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. Filled with creamy dulce de leche and finished off with tangy and smooth cream cheese frosting.
