Wellington Bake Club: Week 2

For the second week of Wellington Bake Club we had to make veggie cakes and they did not disappoint!

I perused Pinterest and googled a few recipes, and soon found a gorgeous zucchini chocolate cake to make.

I amended the recipe slightly to exclude the coconut – I don’t really like coconut and didn’t think it would do much for the cake anyway. It was delicious! I will definitely be making it again. Although I need to experiment with the glaze a little bit as it didn’t came out that well.

The winner this week was a chocolate beetroot cake, which was lovely and moist. It was not judged on the Monday, so wasn’t included for the public vote. This week the people’s choice winner was the rhubarb crumble cake.

Bake-off day at work

Today at work (yes, I have a new job. Of which the details I will need to blog later) we had a bake-off.

Since I started it was discovered there were a few baking extraordinaires in the mix, so we had a bake-off!

Many delicious things were brought into the office today for us all to enjoy. And for your enjoyment, here is some food p0rn…


Pineapple cupcakes, which just looked fabulous.


Pink cupcakes of some variety, very sweet and delicious.


My caramel cupcakes with “cloud” frosting. Nothing like the originals, but they still tasted good. *sigh of relief* I do miss having a fully stocked kitchen of bake ware etc.


Mini melting moments, a perfect treat size.


Banana cake with cookie and nutella topping.

And the winner is…


Triple chocolate cheesecake. Absolutely to die for.
