primrose bakery book

Our postman arrived this morning with a parcel containing this little gem, The Primrose Bakery Book.


I can feel the urge to bake coming on.  Just look at that carrot cake.  Doesn't it look delicious.

Green tea cupcakes.  So pretty.


And those biscuits.  Could biscuits be any lovelier?


Sadly I think most of these masterpieces are a little beyond my current baking skillset.  However a girl can dream.


A little wildflower arrangement created by my eldest boy.  Can you see the little stones in the bottom? He informed me he knew I would think they were pretty.  I have a bit of a thing for stones, a little weird, I know.  Anyway, wishing you all a lovely bank holiday weekend.

  2. I've got one of their older recipe books and it has been a family treasure. Their chocolate cake, a firm favourite for birthdays, is fairly longwinded in the making but absolutely heavenly for those who enjoy an overdose of chocolate :-)

    Enjoy your weekend and may it be filled with baking.

  5. Hi Bee, thanks for the love yesterday, really helped me get my head straight! Yum to all those cakes - I think it's ok to eat cake as long as it's homemade - after all, all that stirring burns off a few calories I'm sure. And I totally know what you mean about stones, I have a big collection that have been brought home from everywhere, they live on a ledge out in my garden and I can see them from my kitchen window, nice to look at while I'm washing up. And how lovely of your boy to arrange flowers for you, I think he's got a good eye! Hope you're having a lovely long weekend. Rachel xxx

  6. Hello Bee, looks like you have been a creatively busy bee! missed the last couple of posts, had a summer bug and put myself in bed. The cakes are tempting, I am very unimaginative when it comes to food, always need inspiration! haven't seen the new mollie makes yet, looking forward to it! Heather x

  8. That flower arrangement is absolutely gorgeous, especially the stones. Talented, I say. Also how lovely that he was thinking of you when he put the stones in.

    The book looks pretty cool too.

  10. Ah, that little flower arrangement is so pretty, bless him.

    I have the Primrose Bakery cupcake book and found it very inspiring, especially for seasonal things like Halloween and Christmas, and I've had the above book on my Amazon wish list for some time. Let us know what it's like. There is little better than a new cookery book in my opinion! x
