Love Cake February 2016

We were being good for our January Love Cake. Not scrap was thrown out for our theme of 'No Waste'. If you're after some ideas to use up egg whites, mincemeat, lemons, bananas, raspberries, marzipan, parsnips and yogurt take a look at the round up here.

This month celebrates the second anniversary of Love Cake - as if we need a reason for cake! The Venerable Bede tells us that the Anglo-Saxons called February Solmonath or Month of Cakes. With all that in mind I have declared a cake free for all this month. Bake what want and come and share it. Therefore the theme for this month is THE MONTH OF CAKE.

Here's how to join in:

1. Please make sure your entry conforms to this month's theme of THE MONTH OF CAKE.

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 February 2016 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.

7. I would love to read about the recipe you have used to bake your cake. If the recipe is not yours please respect copyright and do not reproduce the original recipe in full but credit the source and link back to it.

8. You can link up your post to as many other blogging challenges you wish if it fits the theme. A comprehensive list can be found at The Food Blog Diary.

At the end of the month I will do a round-up of all the entries and post it on this blog.
