Calendar Cakes - January

Happy New Year!

Welcome to 2013...I hope it's a year full of fun, health and happiness :-)
So to kick us off with the first Calendar Cakes of 2013 the theme is New Year, New You! After the excesses of Christmas most people's thoughts turn to a slightly healthier January. So whatever healthy or at least healthier treats you might be making this January we'd love you to join us in our Calendar Cakes Challenge.

Maybe you've been considering making a cake or bake with unusual vegetables, a fruit cake or cake with fruit, a reduced sugar bake or a bake with substituted ingredients...if so then this is the challenge for you. I'll do a round up of all the entries at the end of January.

My co-host for Calendar Cakes is Rachel and you can check out all the fab Christmas entries over at Dolly Bakes. To enter this month, here are the guidelines...

Entry Guidelines:
  • Post your entry on your blog and include the ‘Calendar Cakes’ logo
  • Add 'Calendar Cakes' as a label on your post.

So…happy baking, we can’t wait to see what you come up and we’d be delighted for you to join us in our challenge!


  1. I'm not very good at linking my posts, so I'll be happy to just drop in and check out your cooking event. :)

  2. Wonderful theme and I will be entering this as it fits in with my healthy eating plan! Karen
