15, 100 or 1000?

Wow wow wow is today a day for celebration?! I was planning on just doing a happy birthday post for my brother James’ 15th, but it turns out this happens to be my 100th blog post too! To add to the excitement, I’ve also just hit 1000 followers on Instagram - yay! So I’ve combined all three events into a single post to celebrate…

 

James’ 15th

 

Happy happy birthday to my little brother! You might remember my celebration post from last year, featuring some of my favourite childhood photos of James (view the post here). As usual, I’ve spent more time than I’d like to admit in the kitchen creating a fancy cake. Having previously done Malteaser, Snickers, M&Ms and Ferrero Rocher cakes, this year I continued the chocolate theme with a Reese’s peanut butter cup cake…

Two chocolate sponges, sandwiched with peanut butter icing and crumbled Reese’s, coated in more peanut butter icing and decorated with chocolate ganache and even more Reeses’ peanut butter cups - wow! Unfortunately it’s not vegan (huge thanks to Life, Love and Sugar for the recipe), but I’ve also baked some vegan chocolate peanut butter brownies for me and my dad to indulge in too!

So happy birthday James with lots and lots of love xxx

 

100 Blog Posts

 

I’m honestly shocked at how quickly my 100th post has come around - it doesn’t feel like that long ago I was just starting blogging. A major thanks again to my mum for proofreading and helping with all of these posts (for full thank yous check out this post!), I really couldn’t have done it without her.

 

As 100 posts is quite a lot, I’ve made a list of 15 posts (a combination of my favourites and the most popular posts) to round up the highlights of my blog so far. There are many, many more posts I could have included on this list, but these ones are particularly special to me due to the writing process, content, photos, your lovely reactions or simply the memories!
