Easy 50 Minutes

Everyone needs to throw their new kitten a welcome party right? I was invited to create a simple summer bake by @droetkerbakingireland and this was the perfect occasion! I used a mix of Dr Oetker products to make a confetti cake for the most loved cat in the world - well her owners! Sprinkles and icing, teapots and party hats. Sometimes you just need to take the easy route and go with the ‘bung it all in a bowl and voila’ option. And omg it was delicious. Behind the scenes in stories now! Don’t forget to head over to their page to see the other summer bakes and the chance to win a masterclass with Louise Lennox! #DrOetkerBakingIE #SimpleSummerBakes, #ad
