Berry Beautiful Cake

Wednesday’s are officially Livvy and Mummy days!…we get to choose to do whatever we want whether it be to go to our favorite garden center for a play and a coffee or a visit to the shopping mall (Liv loves having a good old fashioned wander around – especially if we swing past a toy shop or two!!)

Last night I asked Livvy what she wanted to do for “our day” together and she said she wanted to bake a cake and make an this post is all about the baking side of our day today and later the post will be all about the making of Livvy’s owl 🙂

The recipe below is our very own… for it we used a mixture of raspberries, blueberries and blackberries…you can add whatever berries you like 😀

  5. Arrange your delicious berries on top of the mixture and place in a pre-heated oven
