Raspberry and white chocolate cake – and snow!

It has turned into a proper winter – snow, ice and cold wet weather. It seems some years since we have had this amount of snow. We are lucky enough to live a short walk from open spaces with lovely views over the city, the Firth of Forth and Fife – enabling us to easily access lung fulls of fresh, cold air.

The views haven’t always been so good………

Snow up close is really quite something…

And obviously, there have been lots of snowmen built

I am not sure why I haven’t made a raspberry and white chocolate cake before. It’s an obvious marriage of flavours. Mr McGregor liked this cake so much I have had to make it twice in a week…….
