Baking Again

From the Afternoon Tea recipe book I made a cherry cake...
It had glace cherries and dried cherries in it.  The dried cherries has a bit of sourness which was very nice, but overall the cake could have done with a lot more cherries in it.
Today I made a coffee and walnut cake.  This is one of my favourite cakes, I just love the flavour of it...
I used the Delia Smith recipe but used instant coffee instead of the espresso, I have used the espresso but didn't think much of it.  Also, I made coffee butter cream icing from here instead of the icing Delia uses.  I like Delia's icing recipe but find the butter cream recipe quicker if I'm in a hurry.
