How To Make The Infamous School Dinner Cakes

One of my many cravings whilst being pregnant has been the infamous “school dinner cake”. You know, that delicious spongy cake with icing ands sprinkles. My face would always light up when I saw them in the dinner queue. After searching the shops and failing to find them, I concluded that I’d just have to make them myself which soon became a bit of an addiction as I’ve made four lots within two weeks. (I shared the majority of it, don’t worry). I’ve played around and put my own touch on it and thought I would share the ingredients and instructions with those of you that want to make this yummy cake.

Growing up in the 2000’s 

Most say we’re fortunate because there are ‘a lot more opportunities these days’ and because we have technology where we can communicate with each other through the click of a button. In some aspects we are lucky, but in my opinion, this is more of a problem with today because it can turn people into materialistic individuals. There’s more to want these days, that’s the reality.
Some of the ‘older generation’ even say and think that we’re just a bunch of uneducated lost souls with no manners, discipline, respect or moral values, who are all mean to each and have babies before we’re married. But let me tell you, growing up in this day and age is HARD. Continue reading “Growing up in the 2000’s “

I love a good “TED Talks” video on YouTube. For those of you that have never watched these videos, they’re basically powerful speeches and people spreading their skills, ideas and knowledge. They always help me when I’m feeling demotivated or down.

Recently I watched a TED Talks video and couldn’t stop thinking about it. I couldn’t shake off everything the lady had said in the video. I’m always open to learning new coping mechanisms; I’m good at overthinking and I’m also anxious a lot.

Seeking the Good in the world

I could sit here and type away about how unpleasant the world is with everything that’s happening. I could go on, we all could. I can hold my hands up and say that I’ve been frightened. Frightened to hang about in large crowds and very weary of my surroundings. The whole situation quite simply confuses me and I am no longer stressing myself out trying to make sense of it, or life in general if I’m honest. I’m not here to speak about politics, I wouldn’t say I’m educated enough to be able to have a strong enough opinion, but one thing I do know is that the world is a very crooked place. When these terror attacks occur, it puts everyone in a state of fear. It’s hard to get away from the situation when it’s plastered over the media and everyone’s speaking about it. If you’re like me, it can start really messing with your head. Overthinking is one of the things I do best and I noticed a definite change in my mood when the Manchester Bombings sadly took place. I couldn’t shake it out of my mind for a good few days. I couldn’t see anything positive in it; there’s nothing good about innocent people losing their lives.
