Cooking Catch-up

Obviously I've been ignoring this blog for a little while.... oops!
And it's not that I haven't been cooking - I have! Heaps! I've even been taking photos - except all I do is instagram them, or post them on facebook.
But a friend recently suggested to me, that since I post so many food photos, I should start a food blog... yeah, already have one of those... just don't post on it!!

So, here's what I've been up to the last few months:

I made upside down gingerbread men Reindeer cookies for the kids I teach, just before Christmas.

I made a cake for a friends impromptu engagement party/picnic.
It was three layers of ombre'd pink, with vanilla buttercream between, and covered in fondant.

 Two cakes to order for staff birthdays - both neopolitan - chocolate, vanilla and strawberry layers, with vanilla buttercream, and fondant.
Another cake to order - Chocolate Guinness cake, with chocolate ganache between 4 layers, and covered in chocolate ganache buttercream, with chocolate shavings. 
I can't remember what sort of cupcakes these were - chocolate of some kind, with what I'll assume is a vanilla buttercream. Ah! And chocolate ganache piped into the centres. Now I remember... they were yum!

Roast pumpkin, kumara and carrot with rocket, feta and bacon. So good! (With a mustardy dressing.)

Pumpkin, Spinach, Feta and oven roasted Tomato Quiche, with Guacamole and Tomato chutney.

Caramelised lime Prawn soft shell tacos, with tomato chutney, guacamole, rocket and lime sourcream.
