Hello! This is a weekly feature where I share my photos with you. I carry my camera everywhere, and I’m always taking pictures of things that inspire me. Prepare to see lots of colours, patterns and good times through my lens!
Happy 2013, guys! What did you get up to on new year’s eve? We had a little party in our flat. I made a lot of cake, as usual. There were lots of bright and kitschy decorations…as usual. Have a look:
Vasilopita is a traditional Greek new year’s eve cake. It’s usually a simple orange sponge cake, but I took it to new, technicolour heights. I’m not sure my mum would approve.
Lemon cupcakes with blueberry frosting, inspired by this recipe.
I got a lot of Turkish Delight chocolate for Christmas, so I baked a bar of it into chocolate brownies. I highly recommend it!
Earl Grey scented cupcakes with clementine frosting. (The cake recipe is from here, but I made a simpler frosting: icing sugar, butter, and the juice and zest of 2 clementines.)
The food table at our party. Yum, yum, yum, yum.
Midnight! Every year, we welcome the new year by banging on pots and pans with wooden spoons (and potato mashers, tongs, and any other utensil we can find).
Party poppers! We like to party like it’s 1993.
A doorway-ful of streamers.
We love a bit of neon.
Some gorgeous, gorgeous wine packaging.
The morning after was beautifully sunny…and totally messy.
May your 2013 be filled with cake, friends, sunshine and happiness.
