PART 1: It all started with a pin...

Pinterest... It's been an addiction for some time now - there's almost always a tab up the top of my screen with it open and ready for some random browsing, pinning, wishing and dreaming!

Follow Me on Pinterest

So many pins so little time... You can find all my pins by clicking the above tab, check them out - and I'd love if you liked what you saw enough to follow along!

I thought I'd do a bit of a showcase series of sorts and show you a few of the things that all started with a pin....

I'll be doing a few more posts on other themed pinterest inspired projects over the next few weeks...

Today, here's a few of the food type ones...

I love cake decorating... you will find some examples of my earlier cakes HERE... but then I saw this fabulous fondant quilled cake on pinterest:


And this one....



And so I had to give it a go... and so was born my first Quilled Fondant Cake:










 

This rainbow icing pin...




...inspired this... oh and the cake pops were an idea garnished from the wonderful world of pinterest too!


My cookie monster cakes were born of a pin seen and loved...



And then because my girl LOVES pink at her request we came up with and made... Conchita - Cookie Monsters long lost cousin!



In my search for a cake theme for Big Little Miss M's Birthday last year I came across this:



This was my result:



I used this idea to package up some homemade cookies for my mother-in-law as a gift from my girls...



These brilliant cupcakes baked directly in a wafer cone and the foil tray holder are fabulous...



And with that inspiration I made these:



I saw these...



And just knew that my girls party candy buffet would not be complete without them....



This cake photo...


...inspired my own Frangelico Imbibed nutella combo cake



Now here's some food pins I've road tested and Oh My Goodness... sinfully yummy food (that sadly does my diet no good!)

Magical Layered Brownies..... these are GOLD!





















This pastry effect is easy and looks good too - was the perfect way to wrap my yummy apple strudel...














These Vanilla Pudding Cinnamon Rolls are pretty much perfect... quick, easy, oh so yummy, super light and fluffy!




These yummy cookies have been given a few runs at our house... they are the new go to cookie recipe for baking days with my girls...




The girls claim this take on the old banana split as their new favourite:



This Turkish Semolina Cake has been made a few times now - I'm a sucker for semolina and more so for anything drizzled with copious amounts of gorgeous yummy homemade syrup


Well, I could go on and on - I haven't even included any savoury foods!!!
So if you're not on pinterest head on over - there's more things to try and experiment with than you'll ever have all the time to do but you will find some absolute gems that are sure to be long - time family favourites!

So, as much as Pinterest sucks the spare time out of your day, makes you wish for a bigger house with fantastical proportions and oozing charm of a H&G mag, and all the rest of it... it's all those projects, recipes, hints, tips, quotes to inspire and laugh and identify with that make the Pinterest experience so lovely and addictive.

So, tell me with a comment and a link - What is your favourite pin of all time? I'd love to check it out and have a sticky about your pinterest boards.... and while I'm at it stop by mine and tell me what you think!
