Hi! Welcome to my blog. I am a major foodie, with a haphazard cooking philosophy, currently making that transition from cooking and baking for friends and family to 'wonder if I could make this my career'. Follow me for recipes, the outcomes of a few experiments, and general lovely foodiness. Opinions, reviews and recommendations are all my own.

A Kick At The Pantry Door: Update

Hello Strangers!

I need to apologise for the absence in September and October, there have been a few things keeping me from A Kick At The Pantry Door, namely Gary's new job (very exciting) my job (not quite so exciting but somewhat hectic recently) and a little trip to the hospital (not at all exciting, but thankfully all is well now). 

Anyway, I'm back, and I have some great recipes to share with you over the next few weeks, not to mention catching up with a few reviews and back posts. Those of you that have submitted Apple recipes to Feel Good Food, please be assured that the round up will appear soon, thank you for your patience! 

I must add, the past few weeks haven't been entirely unproductive on the Pantry Door front, so I'll leave you with a few pictures of what I've been up to away from the computer keyboard...! 


  1. Welcome back and congrats on the new jobs!

    1. Thanks Kat, looking forward to catching up on a few things now! x

  2. Welcome back! your cakes look lovley. Can i ask you a question? I've been asked to make tinkerbell cake....i have no idea where to begin! in the style of your hello kitty would be what i wud love it to look like. any tips on where i should start?

    1. Hi! Thank you! Keeping it short and simple, to make the Hello Kitty, I printed a picture to the size I needed for the cake, then used pins to fasten it to the top of the fondant covered cake, putting a pin at all the key joins to transfer the outline onto the cake. Then remove it, and use fondant rolled into strips to recreate the outline, and then fill with coloured royal icing. If you want me to go over in a bit more detail please feel free to email me!

  3. Nice to have you back! Hope you are ok - trips to hospital are rarely fun...You look like you have been very busy with your cakes anyway. And congratulations on the job front too!
