Not my best photos, but hey- it was 2:30am  Undecided

One of my work friends is vegan and I feel bad that I bring so many baked goods to work and he can rarely eat any! So I decided to make him his very own special vegan apple & walnut caramel upside down cake.

The problem was, this was amazingly good. Not much of a problem, right? Well it is when everyone else downs it before 11am! Luckily I managed to savalge one piece for the vegan guy- he was the very last person to get any, haha! My boss has now advised me to "make more granny cakes" and says it was maybe my best work ever. Not too shabby considering it was vegan!

This is a 3 layer buttercake, each layer contains chopped strawberries, icing sugar, and a whooolle lotta cream. I used 3 punnets of strawberries all up! It's for my Mother in Law for Mothers Day today.

My own Mum is on weight watchers right now- and asked me not to make her anything fattening. I couldn't let her get away without having a cake so I attempted my very first Angel Food Cake! The icing is super-light cream cheese mixed with icing sugar & melted to thin it out for drizzling! I threw some strawberries in the middle and sprinkled the icing sugar over the top.

We haven't tasted it yet (I've never tasted Angel Food Cake at all actually), but it looks lovely!

Thanks for looking Smiley
