Having looked at my last few blog posts I’ve realised the overwhelming presence of Tunnock’s in my life at the moment! To diversify (alebit only slightly…from biscuit to cake) I’ve decided to post an album of some of the cakes that I have made over the last few years. The one in the photo above was for a friend’s birthday,…

On looking at Tunnock’s, I’ve discovered a whole subculture of people (scarily like me) who seem to have a fascination with all things red and gold and biscuity. There are even a couple of artists who have shown their love for Tunnock’s confectionary. Fiona Watson made the beautiful photo of the deer and the teacake, as well as several prints…
