  • How's this for a Rad Dad and Super Mum? Brian Elton has twin girls - who celebrate their 4th birthday shortly. When he asked them what kind of cake they wanted, he says "My twin daughteers asked for a Hulk Princess Cake for their birthday and my wife made it happen... Proud Poppa here" With a wife who can make possibly the coolest 4 year old cake going around, and twin 4 year old girls who want a Hulk Princess cake, I'm pretty sure this guy is one (very lucky) Rad Dad! Hats off to Super Cool Mum for this awesome cake - I know it tops my Women's Weekly efforts! 🙂 *Image souce c/o Twitter

  • Every child loves a bit of a treat now and then. Admittedly, we don't send treats to school, except the occasional Tiny Teddies. However, now that my daughter is in "big" school, she comes home telling me about all the lovely treats her classmates have in their lunch boxes. So my go-to treat is homemade muffins. There are so many options when it comes to muffins. Practically every fruit there is can be turned into a delicious muffin. So back to the recipe. I have discovered the most amazing food blogger. She calls herself Phoodie and she can be found at  . I came across her Banana and Coconut Muffins the other day. Seriously, they are so easy to make and you don't even have to use the whizzer. In fact, it's better that you don't. Make sure you don't overmix.  And as she says, the recipe is flexible. You can use whatever fruit you like. And these are how mine turned out! The recipe can be found at Happy baking!
