Casa Costello is 7 this week! Yay and Happy Blogiversary to me Its been 7 years of really good fun – I started off as a Celebration Cake blog telling the behind the scenes tales of cakes customers had ordered, for example, why someone chose a Most Unusual First Holy Communion Cake and have covered all sorts of topics since.
My first love will always be baking posts though, which is why I am so pleased that Bake of the Week is doing so well.
Over the past 7 years, Casa Costello has seen 615 posts, 192 Cakes (I haven’t eaten them ALL!), several caravan trips, 1 new baby.
In that time, I have met so many lovely bloggers, some of whom I am thrilled to now count as friends. I have attended blogging conference, blogging events, nights away and even a holiday to Centre Parcs – This adventure is hard work but still so exciting. My girls have experience events and opportunities that previous jobs just didn’t give them. (This sort of makes up for them not being able to eat their tea without me taking a photo of it first!)
So what about the cakes – Here’s just a few of my favourites …
The Chocolate Wedding Cake – This smelled amazing!
And the final wedding cake was just a bit special.
At the risk of sounding like an Oscar winner, I do need to thank everyone for reading the Peppa Pig Cake Topper Tutorial – My most popular blog post EVER!
So what next? Well, I’m still as disorganised as ever – My mantra during the past 7 years has been that it will get easier once the children start school – Well, Baby T starts in September (weeps). I will have more time to devote to the blog, and cooking and baking. I hope that Bake of the Week & Foodie Friday will continue to grow – I look forward to finding yet more blogs I love to read.
To celebrate 7 happy years of blogging, I will be hosting some giveaways during the next few weeks – I have some brilliant prizes so watch this space!
Thank you so much for reading, following and commenting – I still cannot believe so many of you do!
