Love Cake September 2014

The days are shortening, there's a chill in the air and and our picnic days may be over but if you still feel like a savoury cake snack then have a look at August's Love Cake round up.

For those of you who haven't joined in before this a cake making challenge for anyone who loves to bake cakes and share them. You don't have to be a blogger to join in simply upload your photos and descriptions to your social media accounts. Full instructions are here.

You've spent ages queuing in the shoe shop, grabbed the last pack of shirts and now the kids hate the character on the water bottle you bought back in July. If you haven't got any little horrors then it means more cars on the morning commute but at least you can go to the shops during the day without the fear of bored, moaning children everywhere. This month's theme is of course BACK TO SCHOOL – SOMETHING NEW.

This month I'm looking for cakes with something that is new to you about them. It could be a recipe you've never tried before, a new technique used or a new method of cooking. Perhaps you feel like giving cooking a cake in the microwave a try, digging out a baking tin you've never used or using a different type of flour. It's all about expanding your baking knowledge.

Here's how to join in:

1. Please make sure your entry conforms to this month's theme of BACK TO SCHOOL – SOMETHING NEW.

2. Post your photographs and description on your blog, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Tumblr or Google+ - just make sure they are for public viewing and can be seen by anyone. All photographs must be your own original image and not taken from another source. You can carefully style your photos or take a quick snap on your mobile – either is fine!

3. Enter the URL (web address) of your post into the Linky at the bottom of this post. Once the link closes on Sunday 28th September 2014 at 23:55 no more entries will be accepted.

4. If you are putting your post on your blog please display the Love Cake badge and link back to this blog post. Old posts are accepted but please update them with the Love Cake badge and link. This is a blog hop so share the cake love around if you can.
