Crazy For Cake

Only days left to guiltlessly consume as many calories as you can

Published on December 20th 2011.

Crazy For Cake

IT’S common knowledge that the number of calories you put away over the holidays doesn’t count. Cakes, cookies, endless Christmas puddings and sugar-laden cocktails are all par for the course. Besides, come 1 January gym memberships will all be yours for the taking – and admit it, you’ve missed watching your personal trainer bending over to pick up the weights.

With fourteen glorious guilt-free days to go we’ve rounded up some of our favourite sweet recipes, decadent afternoon teas and a couple of glamorous bakers who make it all look so easy.

Manuelakjeilen Manuela Kjeilen is the best Scandi import since IKEA, and much cuter. 








Chocolatelavacake Chocolate lava cake, the perfect New Year’s Eve dinner party pudding.








Pret-A-Portea If you are still looking for the perfect place to meet the girls for that Secret Santa exchange – what could be better than an over-the-top afternoon tea party? Better get booking.






Violetbakerycupcake Food porn is the new late night read. We’ll take cupcakes, thanks.
