Coffee and Walnut - Part Two

If you read my coffee and walnut cake entry last week, you’ll now know that I am a convert to this tea shop traditional favourite. But what was interesting was the fact that I would never have made this cake nor had a slice of it, had it not been for my friend selling its virtues. This made me think about how easy it is to stick to what you know in life and not veer into unchartered territories.

Coffee and Walnut cake - Out of Vogue or Out of this world?

So yesterday, I made a coffee and walnut cake for a friend as a birthday celebration. Having quizzed her sometime ago about what her favourite cake was she announced it was coffee and walnut. Well that’s a surprise I thought as it never enters my top ten. I don’t really like coffee flavouring and would always discard the coffee creams from the box of Milk Tray!

Coaching and Cakes

So why a website and blog about coaching and cakes. Mainly because these subjects are dear to my heart. I work as a professional coach and love to see the changes that people are able to make as a result of coaching. In addition I love cake!! I love eating it and baking it. I love being able to turn some random ingredients into something quite glorious and I personally have learnt a lot from my baking experiences which I hope to share with you. And it won’t just be cake we’ll be discussing.
