a bundt full of rainbow...

what do you make someone on their birthday that guarantees a smile and exclaims of surprise? why, Rainbow Bundt Cake of course! the reaction to this cake is the same every time...just real looks of joy at a rainbow in a cake. followed by questions 'how did you do it?'. the procedure is surrisingle simple really...just takes a wee bit longer to add in the colours to the separated batter. the best part is that from the outside it just looks like regular cake. it's when the recipient cuts into it that the real surprise takes place. i like the colours to be really vivid to bring out the effect of the rainbow. you can't have a pale rainbow! this was made for Sarah's birthday and i'm so glad it filled her special day with rainbows :)

Lovely light lemon bundt cake

there is nothing like lemon. it just has a lovely zing to it that makes you feel fresh ad alert. it must be one of my favourite scents. and although i haven't posted for a VERY long time, i still have been baking. i'm particularly enjoying bundt cakes and have baked many over these past months. part of the reason i've been offline is because my domain expired and i have been to hell and back to try and get it back. however, i am without success and am now contemplating a name change. so it's back to my blogspot address until i figure out my next move. meanwhile, here is something to wet your taste buds...this is deliciously light. made with yogurt and real lemons, it was moist and fluffy. i made it to bring into work and it was gone in 5 minutes with hungry teachers slicing off doorstep slices and coming back for seconds :)
