It's been yet another busy couple of weeks, both in and out of the bakery. Here is a summary of events in pictures…
I am very proud to ramble off just a few awards the bakery has been nominated for in the past couple of weeks:
Raspberry Cheesecake Brownies are in the finals of the BLAS NA HEIREANN Irish Food Awards! The ceremony takes place in Dingle on the 4th October...
This very blog has been shortlisted
And I am very chuffed to be in talented company in the Bash Create Awards

WeddingI then skipped off to Toronto for a best friend's wedding. The trip was great, and as baking is more of a passion than a job, I made sure to stop and check out the lauded Bakerbots bakery in downtown Toronto on my time off. You'd think I would be worried about eating too much cake before squeezing into a cocktail dress, but no. I ate a homemade ice cream sandwich. Flavour? Earl grey ice cream in an oatmeal and date cookie. Holy yum. I also took a tiny lemon tart to go (which I ate like 5 minutes later on the subway)

David, of David and Lori Bisserman, are the happy couple and their wedding was so much fun.

Book LaunchThe awaited book Sláinte was launched at the Irish Craft Beer Festival last week and boy, was I excited! Caroline Hennessy and Kristin Jensen created a wonderful and current piece of work.

Also this week marked 10 years for Totally Dublin, one of my favorite irish publications. i was happy to make an exceptionally heavy cake for them as they celebrated in Temple Bar's Library Project.
