I'm baaaaaaaaack!!

I got back from Japan last Tuesday.

What a fabulous trip.

We were so lucky to see all the beautiful cherry blossoms blooming - infact incredibly lucky given the temperatures, it was about 5 degrees celcius in Tokyo!! Freaking cold!!

I have a million and one photos of food and especially desserts (my GOD it is dessert heaven over there!!) to post. I was lucky enough to stumble across the Tokyo Food Show one day and took hundreds of photos!!

Honestly, after seeing the amount of cakes, tarts, chocolates, ice creams and macarons in Japan, it's hard to believe dessert wasn't invented there. It's amazing. Every second shop has dessert and let me tell you I was almost having dessert after every single meal. Yes. Including breakfast. And I loved every single minute of it and don't regret it at all.

I went to an all you can eat dessert buffet. I can't even begin to convey the feeling I got when I walked in to the place. Let's just say I was like a kid at Christmas who got the pony that she'd been asking santa for for 10 years.

Anyway, I will definitely post photos soon - as soon as I can get my boyfriend to upload them and all that jazz since they were taken on his fancy pants camera!!

In the meantime, here's a cake I made on the weekend for a 16th birthday:

Just a vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream and covered in fondant. I tasted some of the scraps, it was pretty delish if I do say so myself!!
