Calendar Cakes Challenge - Pump up the Jam!

Calendar Cakes Challenge
My good friend Susan from A little bit of heaven on a plate... is not only a champion marmalade maker (she won gold don't you know!) but she's an avid campaigner for keeping British jam the way it should be. She recently took on some jam meddling baddies at DEFRA in her quest to keep the fruity stuff as sweet as it should be. If you don't like sugar, eat a piece of fruit!

A little bit of heaven on a plateI was inspired by her work and by a recent cake club I ran with the same theme as this month's challenge: Pump up the Jam!

This month's challenge is quintessentially British. We want to see your perfect preserves, fantastic fruity numbers, marmalade mash ups and of course curd creations. If it involves jam, we're all over it!

  1. Oh how utterly gorgeous...and if the jam, or marmalade or curd is homemade even better. Thanks Rachel. x

  2. Ooooh, going to have to really think about this one & come up with a jammy dessert! I don't have ANYTHING on my blog! Thanks for tweeting me this!

  3. Yes! I've a chilli jam notion in the making... We'll see how that goes! If not, I'm sure I can find something to smother in summer preserves! Great challenge this month Rachel :)
