Don't you just love when the sun is shining and all around is abuzz with spring love?

That's just how it felt at the weekend, so what better time to bake one of my favourite cakes for a spot of afternoon tea in the garden.

Fingers crossed the weather is just as good this weekend and you too can bake this cake for your loved ones.

Buon appetito!
