Best of the Foodie Blogs: Ten at Ten (58)


Foodies ten at ten

It is Friday again, and here goes with my first Ten at Ten.  Sunday is Mothering Sunday, so my picks this week are all cakes and puddings that I hope will either appeal to mothers or be made for them.

The Caked Crusader has been blogging a weekly cake recipe since 2007 (I think she has had only one week off in this time for her wedding, but has not missed any others), which is very impressive and a whole heap of cake! Last week she made a crème brulee tart, one of my favourite puddings and sounds delicious in a tart form.

Laura at How to Cook Good Food made a orange & lavender marmalade cake for Mother’s Day with homemade marmalade, she describes the cake as “Light, fragrant, simple”, and as a mother she adores it!

The next cake is from Jude, A Trifle Rushed, with her Rainbow Pop Cake, with brightly hidden rainbow pops in a Victoria sponge. A fun way of brightening up a classic.

Kavey has a new deep fat fryer and a long long list of things to make in it! First to be fried were some amazing looking Glazed Vanilla Bean Doughnuts which come with a detailed step by step tutorial and photos.

Perfect for children to make for their mum are these smiley faced jam cookies from Ros the More than Occasional Baker.  Guaranteed to make you smile, fun to make and adaptable.

Karen made an thrifty and organic Mothering Sunday menu perfect for any mum, with Persian lamb and a chocolate truffle cake with crystallised violets all for under £15 for a family of 4!

Not a recipe, but Amelie’s house has put together the most exquisite cake Pinterest board with some stunning examples, they so skillful and it seems almost a shame that they will be eaten.

Kate baked a chocolate & coconut cake with love for her mother, saying “What possible combination of flour, sugar, egg, butter and baking powder is sufficient to express all the thanks yous, all the appreciation, all the gratitude and all the love?”

Not only does Charlotte run an award winning free from cake business, she has just written 3 books and keeps her personal blog filled with cakes. Her lemon limoncello cake is perfect for this time of year and reminds us of the brighter warmer days to come with the spring.

Lastly, with gin also being known as Mother’s ruin, it seems appropriate to share a review of a gin parlour by Delicious, Delicious, Delicious.  If gin is not your thing then go and have a look anyway as there is lots of beautifully photographed cake on his site too.

Looking forward to next week, and have a lovely weekend!

So You Know...

As you've likely heard and seen, there's an increasing focus on the authenticity of follower growth and engagement on social platforms across the Influencer Marketing community. The platforms themselves have taken measures to deter inauthentic activity and brands now more closely scrutinise the audiences of the influencers with whom they are partnering.

The Flea Network has implemented a system that will detect abnormal spikes in following and engagement, and flag these properties. Of course, such spikes can often be attributed to viral posts or high-profile brands that bring greater exposure to some content.

If one of your social accounts is flagged by our system without an obvious reason, we may reach out to you for assistance in understanding it. If we find any influencer has artificially inflated their audience size or engagement using paid acquisition or automated, third-party tools, we will remove them permanently from our influencer community.

Feel free to reach out to us at with any questions or comments.

Thank you!

The Flea Network Team

Got it!
