January Detox

January Detox

A green tea and lemon loaf cake with lime and coconut frosting. Because everyone knows that Green Tea is full of antioxidants which eliminate free radicals in the body – therefore this cake HAS to be good for you!

I stumbled across Emma’s loaf cake at White rabbits and hungry habits, and was desperate to try the unusual flavour combination.

We didn’t quite follow the recipe, more made it up on the spot so ours consisted of whatever I thought should go in, plus what ever ingredients Baby Bear decided to chuck in on the way. It’s basically the recipe for Chai tea Bear-y cakes, but using Green tea with lemon instead, then topped with lime buttercream and dessicated coconut.

See we ARE being healthy!

If you like Piña coladas, and getting caught in the rain….

If you like Piña coladas, and getting caught in the rain....

I might as well put my hands up and confess – I have a thing at the moment about turning drinks into Bear-y cakes. Cola, Cherry Cola, Malibu and Lime, Irish Coffee… These were my take on piña colada flavoured cakes made for sister’s 21st birthday, I’d been wanting to do them for a while and not just because I have large bottle of coconut rum taking up valuable new cake stand space in the kitchen. I had been waiting for the right occasion though, due to my normal target market for cake having the combined age of 6 years.

They were really easy to do – it’s a traditional vanilla sponge, but instead of vanilla flavouring I used 1 tsp of pineapple essence. I then made a coconut rum buttercream (110g unsalted butter, 500g icing sugar, 2.5 tbsp coconut rum, 2 tsp milk) piped it on using a large round nozzle and sprinkled with dessicated coconut.

They were decorated with a glace cherry and cocktail umbrella, only for me to realise that having done that, they didn’t fit in the cake box to take to my sister. I also then turned my back for two seconds to answer the phone and found Baby Bear using the full cake box as a maraca….
