I was recently tagged by my friend The Little Loaf to do Seven Links. As I'm in the process of moving house and going on holiday, this seemed like a good time for a quick round-up type post (especially as I haven't done one since the Best of 2010). It's nice to think back over old posts and see how things have changed.
My most beautiful post: Has to be The Beautiful and Damned Cake, below. That post definitely holds a special place in my heart.
My most popular post: Going just on numbers, Honeybee Chocolate Cake.
My most controversial post: The authenticity of my Sinful Chocolate Simnel Cake was debated in the comments and by email. (I was more worried about the description of 'Sinful', but couldn't resist the alternate alliteration... oh dear).
My most helpful post: Judging by the emails I've received, I reckon Raymond Blanc's Lemon Cake.
My most surprisingly successful post: Malteser Cake. For the competition it won (see top) and the number of people who have made it around the world - I still can't believe it.
My most underrated post: Coffee and Walnut Cake. From way back in 2009. One of my favourite recipes ever.
The post I'm most proud of: a very difficult question. I'm proud of this post about macarons because I find it hard to admit and show you my failures. But In the end I've chosen my recent Vanilla Marshmallows post, as below. Some other favourites line my sidebar (cheating, I know).
I tag Cooking for Seven, Espresso and Cream, Citrus and Candy, Yummy Supper and Culinaria Libris.
(Also, very sorry to anyone who saw this a week or so ago when I accidentally sent this out on RSS, bit of a ditzy moment.)
