It sounds like a lot of us had a cake baking day yesterday!  I used one and a half times the ingredients for lemon muffins then divided it into 2 sponge tins.  Today I will make a cream cheese lemon flavoured filling to go in the middle then add fresh lemon juice and Total Sweet on the top to make a lemon drizzle type of cake. 

Last time I made a Bakewell type cake using the lemon muffin recipe, but used almond essence instead of lemon essence in the mixture.  I sandwiched it with some cream cheese raspberry flavoured filling to which I had added some fresh raspberries.

 I just don't make cake - we can both do without eating it!  We do have a treat once a week of whichever fresh cream cakes are on offer in Tescos - currently 2 apple turnovers for £1.  As you know Pauline I can manage the carbs, it isn't such an issue - but your baking is nice whereas mine has never been brilliant other than savoury stuff and foolproof things like home made flaky pastry and choux which both seem to benefit from heavy handedness LOL - and both of your offerings above have got my saliva glands working overtime!
