Let Them Eat Cake!

If Marie Antoinette and I have anything in common, it’s that we both love our cake. There’s something so satisfying about embarking on a big, elaborate recipe and once I’m done baking I’m always left with the feeling on having accomplished something. Cake makes me feel good even before the eating part!

Sweet Spell (who nominated me for the One Lovely Blog Award) asked me to participate in a link-up party this week featuring some of the best cakes around the blogosphere. My Honey Mandarin Orange Cake is in there (perfect if you’re experiencing if you’re feeling blue about the colder weather). These fine bloggers have some great cake recipes as well:


Sweet Spell made this decadent looking Date Cake that looks like it would go perfectly with your morning coffee.

cooking-without-limits-date-cakeI’ve been following the blog Cooking without Limits for a while and this Pear Cake is still one of my favorites. The inside is just stunning!


Chiara writes in both English and Italian on her cooking blog Chiara’s Baking and her Buckwheat Cake with Jam is simple, sweet and classic to Italy.


Paradise Cake sounds just like that- paradise- and the recipe for it can be found over on the blog Searching for the Good Life.

foodie-on-board-chia-cakeFinally, Foodie on Board has baked the most beautiful Orange and Chia Seed Cake with Sugared Rosemary. I bet you can’t even taste how healthy it is!

Many thanks to Sweet Spell for rounding up all of these great recipes (and great bloggers!) If you’d like to participate in a future link-up party as well give me a shout at keepingbusyb@gmail.com. I always love to hear from and/or drool over your baking pictures!
