Easter Eggs and Raspberries with Added Cake!

Hey Guys!

By now you've probably heard about Google Reader shutting down in July, so I just wanted to make a quick note to say that you should totally follow me by a different method by then =P  I currently read all my blogs through Bloglovin', so I personally recommend that one!  Oh, and if you're still following Coffee and Craft via some method, you can remove it out of your sub box because I'm definitely not posting there again.  Now onto the actual post!

Ahh, I love having events to bake for.  Also Tuesdays.  Tuesdays are awesome at work.  Recently, my boss got engaged, one of my co-workers had a birthday over the weekend and it's the last week of term.  Of course I had to bake a fancy ('s not that fancy) cake to mark the occasions.

Chocolate cake!

Although, for a group of musicians we kind of sucked at singing "happy birthday"...  Seriously though, the cake was delicious.  I used a chocolate cake recipe ("Mum Goodwin's Chocolate Cake") from Julie Goodwin's cookbook, but thanks to the fact I didn't use a big enough cake pan it didn't cook in the middle.  And sank rather impressively.

So I filled it with Easter Eggs and frozen raspberries and called it a success.

Seriously though, make sure you use the right pan size.

What do you do if/when something you've baked collapses / doesn't live up to expectations?
See you Friday!


  1. That cake looks delicious. You had a great idea to save it. I'm following you now on Bloglovin' and I found your blog through Find a Friend Friday. Have a great Easter!

    1. Thanks so much! Pretty sure the added raspberries/eggs distracted everyone from the fact that the edges were overcooked lol. Happy Easter to you too!

Pattern: No Navi!

It's been a while...  Life's been pretty hectic around here, finally 3/4 way through my prac, so hopefully I can get more pattern making / stitching sometime...  For now, here's a small pattern inspired by this demotivational poster:

Pichu Cross Stitch

My first cross stitch creation, created with KG-Chart LE.  It's a Pichu (from Pokemon), and I'm hoping to continue with this Pokemon theme through other cross stitches.  If I get around to this, I'll post a picture when I'm done =)

23 before 23: 6 month update!

Back in August I posted about 23 things that I wanted to achieve before I hit 23 next year (read about it here). Since we're at the 6 month mark, I thought an update was in store!

Writing this post and reading over my list I'm realising how much I've got to achieve - school holidays now, time to get busy! So far I've achieved...

12. Spend a day at the beach
Check! Was a gorgeous day and both myself and my boyfriend came back without being completely roasted. Considering how pale we both are, that was a surprise.

19. Find a signature makeup look
It only occurred to me the other day that I'd done this - I <3 my winged liner and bright lip.

20. Read 2 "classic" novels
Done and done!
Clearly I've gotten lazy with my book reviewing, haha. I've since read The Great Gatsby, Little Women and am currently marathoning my way through Anna Karenina.

I've noticed it just seems like I'm not a Jane Austen fan but have enjoyed all of the others that I've re…
