plumcake-101

I was won over by Desserts for Breakfast by its name alone… and even better, the content totally lives up to the title. One warning though, those without a sweet tooth should look away now! First of all, the light in Stephanie’s pictures is just beautiful and her flavour combinations are always right up my…

So, breakfast. The most important meal of the day or an unwelcome intrusion on your beauty sleep? I have a mixed relationship with breakfast… during the week I’m the latter, at weekends the former.

I discovered Sprinkle Bakes via Tori of Wellies & Vogue. Or rather, her Mum who made this show-stopping jewel cake. Today’s food blog could hardly be more different from yesterday’s… while What Katie Ate is all about good, honest recipes photographed in a sophisticated way, at Sprinkle Bakes novelty, experimentation and food colouring is king….

If I’m ever lucky enough to visit Australia, What Katie Ate will be one of my first stops when compiling my ‘places to eat’ list. Originally from Dublin, food photographer and stylist Katie Quinn Davies is now based Down Under, where she has a string of impressive magazine credits and a forthcoming cookbook to her…
