Mini cake

Recently I had to close the bakery as my husband got Covid. Today is day 11 and is slowly improving. It proved to be a very stressful, anxiety-filled time, especially before we knew if he was going to be okay or not. Now he is recovering. In the interim, I made this little mini cake to take my mind of things. Baking helps me to cope with stress.

I made a small batch cake using a recipe from the Loopy Whisk. It made one small cake which was enough for 4 slices. I used some left over coffee buttercream I had and made a quick salted caramel sauce.

I then went into the garden and picked some fresh roses and greenery and nasturtiums to add to it.

The cake had a lovely taste and texture and it was a fun little baking project to do. Sometimes I enjoy baking for myself the most as their is no pressure or expectation involved.

Mini cakes are a cost effective way to spoil a loved one or yourself. Sometimes a huge cake is just too much especially if you are only one or two people. A mini cake gives 4 good sized slices and is a lovely once off treat without any wastage.

Hello. My name is Bonnie. Welcome to my page. I have been an avid baker for about 20 years. Of those years, seven have been gluten-free baking. I discovered I had a chronic intolerance to gluten and began experimenting with converting my all time favorite recipes into gluten-free ones. I also have developed my own recipe repertoire. I am married and have two children. My husband and son are not gluten intolerant but my daughter is. She has also been the motivation for persevering in creating recipes we both can enjoy. My journey has taught me so much and I know many others can benefit from my experience. My hope is that you will find something you can order that you have missed and longed for being gluten intolerant or celiac. Or perhaps you just want a healthier option as I also offer alternatives to some of my orders such as sugar free, grain free and low carb. I share my experience and story in more detail on my Instagram page. (@bonniesGFbakery) Please feel free to follow me there. Located in Somerset West, Western cape, South Africa. I deliver to the Helderberg basin area which includes Somerset West, Gordans Bay and Strand.
