Happy 2nd Birthday to this little blog of mine!

I know it has been an age (I am so so sorry) but I thought I should celebrate a second year of florashedden.com. A lot has changed since I set up my wee corner of the internet – the photos thankfully are one of them! I unfortunately missed my (our?) 1st birthday due to the minor issue of filming a semi final and a complete cocoa carousel collapse, so in all fairness a cake and some favourite snaps was due. Here is what I have been up to since I last checked in:

  • since January I have been pretty much solely focused on the book. The process has been fascinating and I am now itching for you all to see it.
  • two weeks ago we finished the beautiful beautiful photos by my all time favourite lady Laura Edwards (SQUEAAAAAL!) This was my favourite part of the process and I love it so much already. What a phenomenal, gorgeous, funny and creative team I had, I adore you all: Tab, Annie, April, Laura, Kendal, Jaz, Eleanor and Sybella. THANK YOU.
  • last week I moved home after my lease finished at the lovely Harbour House. Though I will miss the lovely sea and baltic St Andrews wind, hopefully I will now have more time to blog!
  • it has been a summer full of wedding cakes and bakes
  • and I have been busying myself with lots of other exciting projects that I can hopefully tell you all about soon

All in all I have had a pretty bloomin’ good two years and I am so grateful for the lot of you that tune in and listen to my sporadic updates, nonsense tweets, constant photos, ridiculous playlists, and general blethering. It has been such a giggle – here is to another two years of salt, sugar and silliness!

    • Flora - Hi Vickie – Thank you so much! The book comes out late January 2017, and I have just seen a finished copy. So excited!ReplyCancel

  • Louise Revell - Hi Flora,
    It was great listening to you on the radio on the 25th and I can’t believe I am so behind in reading your blog posts! Thanks for another fantastic update but unfortunately I’ve been unable to locate the recipe for this cake! Does it exist? If not, why is there a link for it under your recipe section? Is this your version of a technical challenge because if so then could you start with something easier otherwise I may be tempted to look elsewhere like Nadiya, Nigella or even Antony Worral Thompson (the horror!).
    Thanks so much,
    your ex maths teacher’s daughter <3ReplyCancel
