Taking the cake | Save The Rhino

Birthday celebrations are great. You get to be surrounded by your friends and family, and generally, there’s cake and presents. But they can be so much more. Many of our supporters use their birthday as an opportunity to help save rhinos.

In 2019, 9-year-old Isla from South Africa wrote all about why she has been asking for donations to Save the Rhino International instead of presents for her birthday since she turned six. To date she has raised £880 for rhino conservation.

A Coconut Cake for the Ages

No one has ever complimented me on my decisiveness. It takes me forever to make a decision, and then, when I do, I second-guess it, myself and the universe. Given my constitutional aversion to choosing one of anything, when we had to move out of our house last fall for a renovation we committed to in more normal times, I surprised myself by finding it easy to pick the kitchen tools I’d take with me to the rental cottage. I packed a couple of spatulas and whisks, a fish turner, a Microplane grater, a ruler, scissors, a mashing fork I

A rhubarb upside-down cornmeal cake recipe

Rhubarb’s pleasant tartness is what makes it great in desserts, lending balance to a recipe’s sweetness. Hitting farmers markets and grocery stores in late spring, rhubarb comes in stalks ranging from soft, pale green to deep crimson red. While red rhubarb is most often what you see in glossy food photos, it’s purely for aesthetic reasons, as color isn’t an indication of ripeness or sweetness.

Dishing on her practices, Demi also revealed: “Music has certainly helped me, as has meditation, and I was lucky enough to find a spiritual healer who has become like a father figure to me. Having faith is very important.”

Demi’s mom Christine had, when alive, spoken out on Demi’s career, saying she had zero problem with her daughter being largely in swimwear. In fact, Christine celebrated Demi’s strength and said that if you’ve got it, flaunt it. If you missed the bikini and roses sandwich, just scroll.

Jam sheet cake for outside by Claire Ptak | Cake

Sheet cakes are my favourite for a quick and easy cake because there is no trimming, no icing, no stacking and they are charming in their simplicity and nostalgia. My grandmother Betty used to make red cake – she never added “velvet” to the name as that was far too fancy for the simple sheet of red sponge topped with a thin layer of “white frosting”. She would ice it directly inside the baking tin and cover with a sheet of foil and stick it on the back seat of the car (or on my lap) and take it
