About Me

This blog is about me and my voyage to becoming a mummy. Ironically called “mummy in the baking” as together with my passion and obsession for all things cake related, I will never be able to have my own "bun in the oven." Years of fertility treatment have taken their toll and I now find myself on a new..eek, i hate this word...journey! The crazy train to adoption. I hope you will join me while I bake my way to becoming a mummy. I want this blog to be a source of information as well as a comforter. I hope it will inspire and help anyone who is considering adoption or who has in fact already bought their ticket for this..here I go again...journey. Cake makes me happy and I hope you will enjoy sharing my love of it. I want it to help lift your spirits and hearts through what can only be described as 'the trials and tribulations of the adoption process.' Along with my desire to be a family, I love my dogs, have an unhealthy love of sausages and chenin blanc, adore my land rover uber-nerd of a husband and continiously dream of balmy summer evenings. Baking in progress…..

MAY-be baby......

What a month this has been for babies. Perhaps its because I am now just 'in that circle' of small fry but they seem to be everywhere. From the exciting news of an early arrival of a very special mini M&M to the scoop of a second baby for a dear friend, this is a month for bambinos. Even on Planet Adoption, the Fraigs are within days of meeting their boys and Miss Rainbow's match is looking very promising. I am counting the sleeps until panel and with less than 13 to go, my spirits are up.  I have perfected the Red Velvet Cake and in fear of me LRUN consuming it all, I took some round to a good friend, Lady Godiva, who was babysitting her grandson. His eyes lit up with toddler delight when he spotted the cake. Hoovering it up was an understatement. I have never seen a 15 month old appreciate cake as much as he did. Simply adorable. We have a brilliant afternoon and once again, I am reminded how much I want this. But not in a sad way folks....my pot of cherub gold is in sight.
