With everything that has been happening over the past few months, I’d completely forgotten that today is the 5th birthday of Made From Scratch. I sadly haven’t had time to bake anything special to celebration the occasion, so thought I’d share one of my favourite cakes that I made and styled a while ago along side two very close friends - the truly lovely Mel from All the Frills (aka, Bloom Social) and Coralee from Coralee Stone Photography. I have always loved the simplicity, yet impressive nature of a ombre petal cake, it really is such a lovely cake to make for any celebration.

To everyone who has so kindly followed Made From Scratch over the past five years, all I can say is thank you so much for supporting my work. I am so very proud to call this my job and absolutely adore creating and sharing beautiful work for you to admire. Thank you so much for all of your kind wishes, love and support over the past few weeks, I’ll never be able to say just how much it has meant to me. Thank you again so very much for everything, I hope you love this recipe as much as I do (it’s perfect with a glass of champagne!), here’s to another exciting 5 years of Made From Scratch. xo
