Cornish born Choclette is a true foody through and through! Having a rather sweet tooth and enjoying baking, her fascination with chocolate teamed with her love of experimenting with novel ingredients and unusual combinations, as you can well imagine, leads to some astounding bakes! There’s plenty on her site to explore from Rhubarb Fairy Cakes and Edible Flowers for an afternoon tea party to Cashew Nut Butter Brownies for a healthier sugar free choice.
Angie’s wonderfully titled blog ‘Bakerella’ is a window into the true art of baking and decorating. Combining her two passions, photography and cake decorating, the imagery on her site is stunning – well worth a peak! Angie’s speciality is her cupcake pops (a Bakerella original), and these beautiful Flower Bouquet Cake Pops are an example of decoration at its finest!

Her site has an inspiring range of seasonal and themed bakes, with Halloween just around the corner these Quick and Easy Creepy Cupcakes are certain to be gracing many a spooky soirée!
