Where Have I been? A New Blog?

It has been such a long time since I have written on here, almost two months to the day! this has been for many reasons but the main one being that my mental health had took a bit of a turn, and my motivation and desire to write was just not there anymore.

But that being said in the past few days something has clicked in me, I started to really miss writing and creating content for you, and as a result my mind started to think about the future of lifewithfernie.com and the sort of topics I would love to talk about in upcoming posts. I feel as if I want to make a few changes to my blog and focus on what I really want to create rather than what I believe you would want to read about.

If I am being honest with you, before my break from bogging I feel as if my love for blogging had deteriorated a little. I got myself so caught up in how can this make money, or what posts will get me the most views and this resulted in loosing why I really enjoyed blogging to begin with. I feel as if I lost my spark and individuality and I am so ready to bring that all back!

blogging means so much to me, its a chance to sit back and relax and the end of a busy day or share experiences and thoughts with you, maybe even give you some advice and tips and tricks along the way also. Blogging is not my full time job its my hobby and I love it for just that.

I hope to publish one post a week at 3.00pm on Saturdays, previously writing multiple posts a week amounted to so much pressure and stress and it just was not enjoyable anymore. For now one post a week sounds perfect for me and I am excited for what’s to come in the future!

I hope what I am saying kind of makes sense? I have written and re written this post so many times its all starting to look the same haha! I wanted to end this post with what I have planned for future posts, I feel like this is the perfect time to sort of re launch my blog and write about topics I am truly passionate about and interested in. If you want to keep up to date with me I would love it if you would subscribe to me, don’t feel you have to though ❤

Custard Cream Cake!

Today me and Liam decided we would spend our afternoon baking. Baking is something we both love to do together. We have always loved baking together and during our 5 and a half years together we have baked and eaten a lot of cakes! Today we felt like trying to bake something new. After a little bit of googling and pinteresting recipes we came across the lovely Jane from www.janespatisserie.com Her website is filled with hundreds of amazing cakes to bake and try. Her website is well worth a visit!

You can follow my Pinterest here

We loved the look of so many cakes but settled on making her Custard Cream Cupcakes. How delish!

You can find the exact recipe we followed here…

All the ingredients were easy to find and we had most of them sitting in our cupboards. The recipe was also so easy to follow, if we can do it anyone can!

As tradition with baking me and Liam both had a little taste of the cake batter and it tasted exactly like a custard cream! It tasted amazing and we could not wait to try them when cooked.

We gave the cakes an extra 5 minuets in the oven than Jane recommends and the cakes came out perfectly golden brown on top. The had a lovely rise and looked a perfect shape for decorating. After cooling we made up the butter cream. We added to much butter to this and it ended up a little softer than we would of liked, if we had more icing sugar this could of been easily fixed but not to worry it still tasted glorious! Jane decorated hers beautifully, us on the other hand just chucked the icing on and placed half a custard cream biscuit on the top. (our icing was not thick enough to hold a whole one)

Taste Test

At the end of the day this is the most important part of baking. I had high hopes for the overall taste of the cake as along the way it tasted incredible! Unfortunately the cake its self felt rather dense and the cooked cake had lost a fair bit of the custard cream flavouring.,However the icing tasted amazing I could eat bowls of that stuff and of course the custard cream on top was as yummy as always. Overall I would give these cakes a good 7/10 and Liam gave them a solid 8.5/10

If you have any recipes you think I should try, let me know! I am all for eating some more cakes haha!

Cheerio For Now,

Fern xx
