The curse of having soo many talented and creative friends is who to start writing about first. Since it was Handsome Face’s birthday this weekend, I needed to purchase a cake and thought it would be an excellent chance to introduce you to Katie Flo’s Cakes, founded and created by my good friend Katie Lambert.
Katie is one hell of baker and I’m pretty sure that everyone who knows her has told her in the past that she needs to start her own business and lo and behold she has!! Finally!! She speaks so passionately about her baking and how much she would like to open her own cake shop and I’m glad she has started her journey.
I first tasted one of Katie’s banana bread at work during a charity event. A ton of people bought in homemade cake and of course, being the loyal friend that I am I had to have a slice, and the taste was delightful!!! Banana Bread is her speciality and she makes them in loaf form as well as mini cupcakes. Katie makes them for all occasions; wedding, birthday, baby showers and misc.
I knew I had to buy a loaf for Dan’s birthday. I wasn’t quite sure if Dan would like it as I have never heard him mention a fondness for Banana Bread or have I never seen him eat a slice of banana bread, so it was a risky purchase, but I bought one, regardless of whether Dan would eat it or not, I knew I was going to.
So how did Danny boy enjoy his birthday cake? Well before I had a chance to take any images, I found a whole chunk of a corner missing, this is how the conversation went down;
Me: What’s happened to the corner?
Dan: I ate it.
Me: ……WHY THE HELL DID YOU DO THAT FOR?!
Dan: I couldn’t resist…lush mind
Me: I NEEDED TO TAKE PHOTOS OF IT YOU DICK!!!
Dan: It’s my cake Rhian
(Whilst Dan is driving I take a bite myself)
Dan:…what are you doing?
Dan: DON’T EAT MY DAMN CAKE!!!
Me: You ate a bit!
Dan: IT’S MY BLOODY CAKE
Me: You focus on the road I’ll look after the cake
So as you can see neither of us could resist Katie’s cakes and it was sooooooo goooooood!!! It’s the only Banana Bread I will ever eat!!! It’s delicious, soft, moist and all of the above!! My mate is one hell of a baker!! I’ve already ordered another loaf for Father’s Day.
