You may have seen my tweet asking Clothing at Tesco when the amazing purple spotty dress that was featured in Look Magazine last week goes on sale... I haven't managed to find out yet but I have got my hands on this peachy floral version which is just as gorgeous.  It's a really nice fit and has some cute details which unfortunately haven't come out well on my photos, it has the obligatory peter pan collar and a cute bow at the waist.  I can't wait to get my hands on the purple version, if you see it please drop me a tweet as none of the Tesco's near me sell clothes!

I decided to use the Nigella Malteser Cake recipe even though I am suspicious of the lack of fat (I added a bit more as I had read a few reviews saying that it was a bit dry)  I have also added a chocolate ganache to the centre to make it that little bit more special, I can't wait to try it!

Just need to add a birthday candle and it's ready!


  1. mmm that cake looks yummy.
    I love that dress, good luck finding the purple version

  2. I have been hunting high and low for the pruple version too. Did not realise they did a floral version, its so pretty!
    That cake looks amazing!

  3. Lovely dress, the peachy colours are really nice! I wish there was a tescos near me that did clothes.

  4. My mum used to always make a fatless sponge (filled with fresh cream!) which was light and delicious. I imagine Nigella is trying to recreate the "so light they don't ruin your appetite" malteser thing! I'm got a massive urge to make this cake after reading through the Feast book last week so I'm going to make this cake for my sisters birthday in a few weeks (not for me, I am off cake, boohoo!)

  5. The dress is fab! I'll have to ask my mam to take me to big tescos so I can look at the clothes, there's only an asda where I live but they do a fab cardi. You might be able to order the dress and get it delivered to the store, I think I've seen that on the adverts for tesco.
    The cake looks delish and the maltesers on top are pretty

  6. I've got 2 massive Tescos with good clothing departments within a 10 minute drive from my house so I'll have a look for that dress whenever I'm in. :) The floral dress is gorgeous too and they're such a good price! Your cake looks amazing, when is our cake swap going ahead?! xx

  7. Ahhh that dress is lovely! May have to check it out!

  8. I love the dress! I want one now lol. The cake looks yummy, I'm always so envious of how your baking efforts turn out because I am rubbish at baking! xx

  9. This cake looks delicious! I am definitely going to try and make one now :) I love the shape of that dress on you as well, stunning!

  10. I definitely need to get myself down to Tesco when I'm next at home and you definitely need to send me that cake ;) xx

  11. This is such a cute dress! I can see why you want it in both colours. Unfortunately I don't have a tesco near me (Shocking I know- Am I the last person left in the country who doesn't have a tesco at the end of their street?)
    Anyhoo, I'm gonna follow your blog from now on - and from a quick swatch of your blog your're hardly exaggerating about a million dresses are you? Jealous much? xxx

  12. @ScienceGeek it was yummy!

    @Sophie I'll let you know as soon as I find it

    @Sophie Isobel I ordered online as none of the ones near me sell clothes

    @Alison I was worried it would be dry as a few reviews said it was but it was perfect with the amount I put in, it's really good btw!
