I am attending a morning tea for a work colleague who is going on maternity leave. I have been on leave from work since I was diagnosed in September, and this will be my first time back at work for a visit. I have volunteered to make a cake, so now am thinking about what sort. The last one I did for a similar do was a for tiered red velvet number which went down a treat, so I have a lot to live up to!
Ideas and links to recipes appreciated.
