Two old faithfuls: banana, date and cherry loaf and carrot cake (no photos).
Nutella Cake. From Nigella's recipe. Looked fab but was a bit disappointing. Very rich and not terribly nutellibly, despite there being a 400g pot in there. This was Fanf's birthday cake because he loves nutella. Sad that it was not more special.
My pièce de résistance: Barbapapa Cake for Owen. Oh my fat tum, it was absobloominlicious. The cake bit was fresh strawberry and yoghurt cake, from here, and was amazing in its own right. Barbapapa's effete powder pink hue is strawberry buttercream, same as last year. Same as every year if I have my way. And I see no reason why I shouldn't...
[EDIT: Fearing that I had perhaps judged the nutella cake hastily after only one try, one decidedly tiddly try, I did what any conscientious baker would do: I dashed off to have another go. After all, I wouldn't want to mislead you all. Turns out, when untiddled, it's really quite good, and moist as a damp morning in February. The nutella is there, if not hugely pronounced. I think lovers of deepest darkest chocolate would approve. But maybe I should go and have one last slice. Just to be sure...]
