What’s better than a delicious slice of cake mid-afternoon? I’m all about the little winter treats, that help to make the cold outside seem a little bit better. Trudging around with my big boots, hat and scarf on, I find myself dreaming of sitting cosy by the Christmas Tree. With the fairy lights on and the room aglow. Big fluffy socks on my feet and a warm coffee in my hand, with a big slice of cake to have on the side. And this cinnamon spiced pear cake is exactly what I find myself craving.
If you don’t know by now, I absolutely love baking. There’s something about throwing a bunch of simple ingredients together, and making something completely delicious that I just love. There really is nothing better than people taking a bite, and making that irresistible “mmmmm…’ sound. That’s always a sign of a good creation.
Another thing that I love is just how diverse cakes are. There are so many flavour combinations and possibilities. Some like to keep it simple, others go as wacky as they can. I’ve seen ice cream plonked on quadruple chocolate cake, candyfloss frosting, and all manner of strange and bizarre creations
