Love Cake January 2018

Love Cake January 2018
We were getting festive for our Season's Greetings themed December Love Cake. You can see the round up here.

With the start of the New Year we are ringing in the changes for Love Cake. After four years and 47 different monthly themes I've come to end of my ideas. However this does not mean the end of Love Cake! Instead I have decided to throw it open to whatever you want to bake throughout the month as long as it classes as cake (and I have very loose definitions of cake).

Each month I will give some ideas for cake inspiration in the form of seasonal ingredients and monthly events. So for January add some veg to your cake in the form of carrots, butternut squash and parsnips. Citrus fruits are at their best in January but look out especially for Seville and Blood oranges. If you fancy some preserving perhaps add some marmalade to your bake. Pomegranates will also add a fragrant touch this month. If you want to celebrate Twelfth Night with more than taking your decorations down bake a traditional English fruit cake or go French with a Galette Des Rois. A wee dram would be a good addition for a Burns' Night cake. Each year Australia Day is celebrated on 26th January and Lamingtons are now a favourite throughout the country.

Here's how to join in:


1. 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!

2. Enter the URL (web address) of your post into the Linky at the bottom of this post. Once the link closes on Sunday 28th January 2018 at 23:55 no more entries will be accepted.

3. 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.
