Happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me...

...The Caked Crusader's blog is one year old! It doesn't seem five minutes ago that I set out to bake and eat every cake on the planet and, although I've been trying hard, there's still so much work to do!

So what I have I learned over the past year?

1. The world loves cake - I have been visited by people in 93 different countries
2. West Virginians in the USA do not like cake - it is the only state I'm yet to be visited by
3. The most popular recipes on my site are as follows:
  • Cherry bakewells, for the recipe click here
  • Berry and custard cake, for the recipe click here
  • Kourabeides, for the recipe click here
  • Custard tart, for the recipe click here
  • Upside down peaches and cream cake, for the recipe click here
  • Dark Jamaican ginger cake, for the recipe click here

I get tremendous enjoyment knowing that you're all reading my site, and I love your comments. I only hope that you enjoy this site half as much as I do - thanks for stopping by and please - don't be a stranger!

Here's to the next year....
