Love Cake March 2015

The romance of February has passed now and with it a few birthday celebrations along the way. It was quite a bumper month for entries and it was lovely to come across some new blogs. For a reminder of what everyone was baking have a look at the February round up here.

For March we see the days getting even longer and a change in the clocks at the end of month but I have something else on my mind. On Thursday 5th March it is World Book Day. I thought it would be an opportunity to go back to basics and have a look through all those cook books we have at home. Therefore the theme this month is IT'S IN THE BOOK.

I'm asking you to look through your books and get inspired by what you find in them. It could be a tried and tested favourite or something completely new. If you are sharing a recipe please be mindful of copyright but of course feel free to adapt it for your own purposes. It may not be a recipe that gets you baking this month. Perhaps you have read a novel that has made you want to bake a cake be it as part of a recipe or some super cake decoration. If you haven't got the chance to bake this month then tell us about the baking books you have – the bigger the pile the better! Perhaps your favourite is kept in immaculate condition or the pages are stuck together with butter and jam! This is the month where everyone can join in.

Here's how to join in:

1. Please make sure your entry conforms to this month's theme of IT'S IN THE BOOK.

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 Saturday 28th March 2015 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.

  1. Fab idea! I have a very large pile of cookbooks which seems to breed on its own ha ha. This would be a good opportunity to try out some of my new books.

  2. Ooh yes, I have far too many cake books, yet somehow not quite enough ;-)

  3. Great theme Ness! It is great to have an excuse to sit with a pile of books and drool over someone else's hard work! Oh..... and then of course make something yummy!!!!
