Well back in high school I used to make my own gingerbread to fuel my obsession with the stuff, but I didn’t really get into baking seriously until I watched Ace of Cakes. It seems kind of lame in retrospect, but seeing that show really inspired me.

Hands down that would be Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting.

Fun Fact: One time I made somebody breakdown and cry tears of overwhelming joy because of how delicious my cream cheese frosting was.

Cherry Bakewell Cookies (Makes 40)
Ingredients  1&#160;1/2 cups Flour  1/2 cup Ground Almonds  1/2 tsp Baking Powder  1/4 tsp Salt  1/2 cup Butter  3/4 cup Sugar  1 Egg  1 tsp Almond Extract  20 Glacé Cherries (halved) to decorate. 
Preparation Method
Heat oven to 180C/350F.
Cream together the butter and sugar until smooth.
Beat in the egg and almond extract.
In a separate bowl sift together the flour, ground almonds, baking powder, and salt, before stirring in to the creamed butter mix.
Shape dough into thick disks roughly 1&#8221; in diameter and press a halved cherry into the centre.
Bake in the oven for 12-14 minutes, or until golden-brown.
Eat all immediately with blatant disregard for the now molten cherry goo topping the cookies.

Yup all me!
Although as far as all goes there’s only like five pictures on here at the moment; I keep forgetting to use my camera after I’ve been baking.
