And on a side note….

A Beard Cake- there's red velvet cake under all that blue icing

And on a side note, a complete tangent, a completely irrelevant vein, I just had to share- after more than 12 months offline, one of my favourite bloggers is back at it, creating beautiful cakes and beautiful blog posts.

Check out the work of Kaitlin at Whisk Kid. Her writing’s great, her photos are great (even better this time around, actually), and her recipes are great. Her recipe index is always the first I check when I’m in need of baking inspiration, and her Old School Red Velvet Cake is one of my favourite go-to’s (I’ve put a couple of pictures of my various versions of the recipe below).

A word of warning to Australian bakers though- Kaitlin’s recipes use American measurements for an American flavour, so you might want to alter them accordingly.

That’s all!
