Chocolate Log Blog – Three Years On
Can you believe it? I certainly can’t. This blog is three years old today!
Thank you so much to all the wonderful folk who follow my blog, leave comments, bear with me, visit and join in the We Should Cocoa challenges. I really couldn’t do it without you. Much as I started this blog as inspiration to make me bake a more diverse range of chocolate goodies, it has morphed into something else and I don’t think I would have come nearly as far as I have if it hadn’t been for all of you.
For this, my third blogiversary, I wanted to take a highlight from each month of the last year. This proved to be much harder than I’d anticipated – there were a number of significant events worthy of inclusion, but I made myself stick to only one – cue applause. Here they are:
February 2011 – really excited by the quality and quantity of entries for the We Should Cocoa tea challenge and to have the brilliant prize of a box of Matcha Chocolat tea chocolates.
|March 2011 – having fun playing with some of the words associated with my blog on this wordle cloud|
|April 2011 – rolo cake for a friend’s 3rd birthday|
|May 2011 – baking with my first ever goose egg|
|June 2011 – a triple chocolate matcha cake for a dear friend’s birthday|
|July 2011 – weather and time permitted a miracle tea party down at our plot|
|August 2011 – my first time joining in with Celia’s wonderful In My Kitchen series|
|September 2011- another friend’s birthday and a 2nd and more successful attempt at piping with these chocolate and ginger cupcakes|
|October 2011 – my mega baking session for a friend’s all weekend party|
|November 2011 – a weekend of food blogger meet ups with Vanessa’s Lets Make Christmas in London and Annie Ko’s Bite n Write in Birmingham|
|December 2011 – one of several Christmas Hampers I made – a true labour of love|
|January 2012 – not much of a picture, but I was inordinately proud of these top tea cakes – the most delicious I have ever eaten|
|February 2011 – hooray and just in time for the double celebration of my blogiversary and Valentine’s Day, I won this amazingly hug box of chocolates from Simply Food – and I haven’t touched a one yet! The chocolates that I made for CT and in anticipation of this post will just have to feature another day.|
