Welcome to Pretty Scrumptious

I am passionate about food and have always loved to bake, but recently my cake-making has turned into something of an obsession. So much so that I am wondering if this could, one day, be a new career path. I love elegant, romantic, simple, pretty, colourful, whimsical, stylish designs. I also love natural, fair-trade, organic, home-made, seasonal, do-it-yourself, vintage, second-hand, local and good quality - so wherever possible I am going to use ingredients that are true to these values. There will be times when I cannot resist a purchase from my favourite cake shop, but I'll also be combing my parents' attic, using Freecycle and Ebay and begging and borrowing from friends when it comes to adding to my collection of cake equipment. 
I plan to share fabulous discoveries and inspirational ideas, my own cakes, delicious recipes, book reviews, tips and do-it-yourself ideas for entertaining friends and family that will bring sparkle to any celebration or gathering...
There is no better way to start as I mean to go on, so I am sharing my latest cake - a festive rich fruit cake for Christmas, covered with wintry blue sugarpaste and decorated with shimmering snow-covered Christmas trees and piles of colourful presents in pastel pinks, yellows, greens and blues.
