Runner-up top posts in 2016 (nos 10 to 18)

Happy new year! Top posts in 2016 and baking projects for 2017…

Cake news and fun

Hope you’re all having a wonderful start to 2017!  We can be nostalgic looking back at last year, excited thinking of new experiences to come and hopeful for greater peace, love and understanding.  And of course I’m not obsessed with cakes, perish the thought (lol), but I was curious to investigate my year in bakes and which posts were most visited in 2016.  The ones above are not actually the top 9, they’re the runner ups – numbers 10 to 18!  Those below are the most popular, with over half coming from my basics section!

Top 9 posts in 2016

Here’s the list from my stats so you can see what they are.


It seems people are looking online for instructions to work with basic elements like glazes, pastry and sponges.  Interesting!  My basics section (which includes some intermediate-advanced techniques) will probably continue to expand and it’s nice to know it might be helpful.  For me too, as I’m realising that without this blog I’d have forgotten how to make many things!

Cake plans

Well, planning to continue making cakes!!!  🙂

Here’s a provisional to-make (possibly again) and to-post list – I’m going to tick and highlight the ones I manage to make because that will give me a feeling of achievement! (and give me an idea of what’s left to do…lol):

There’s probably more but that’s enough to start with?  In fact might not get round to all of them so let me know if there’s anything you’re really interested in and want to see before 2018!  Or before the turn of the century. 🙂  Do you have any suggestions or requests?

There’ll be some healthier cakes or just small slices.  I do need to get up the rock.


That was hard work.  And it’s my excuse for not posting anything for a little while.  I was up a rock.  In Alicante.  Now I’m on holiday with mum in beautiful Sicily and getting all excited again about their pastries filled with delicious creamy ricotta.

So look forward to seeing you again soon dear reader and next time I’ll post a recipe.  Just wanted to say thank you for your likes, comments and just being here and I wish you a wonderful new year.  Hope many of your wishes come true and may 2017 be filled with happy baking and eating! 🙂  Lili x

P.S.  Here’s the list of top bakes numbers 10 to 18 with the links (from top left corner snaking around):

Baking on Sundays with my French mum was a lovely part of my childhood. Later I experimented with baking books or internet recipes and did the pâtisserie course at Le Cordon Bleu Paris. Still trying out new recipes and inventing cakes with influences from all around the world, including some healthier ones. Yes, love cakes!!! Hope you'll love them too and have fun baking. :)
