Liebster blog award

Thank you Baking Addict from TheMoreThanOccasionalBaker for giving me my first blog award. She's a good friend and my partner in crime for the Alphabakes challenge, and her blog is full of amazing bakes - I can't believe she has time to bake so much!

Apparently, "The origins of the Liebster Blog award are somewhat unclear but the general consensus is that it originated in Germany, Liebster meaning favorite or dearest, to showcase bloggers with fewer than 200 followers. Upon accepting the award the recipient must then pass it on to five more blogs of note."

Here are the rules:
  • Thank your Liebster Blog Award presenter on your blog.
  • Link back to the blogger who presented the award to you.
  • Copy and paste the blog award on your blog.
  • Present the Liebster Blog Award to 5 blogs of 200 followers or less who you feel deserve to be noticed.
  • Let them know they have been chosen by leaving a comment at their blog.
So to keep the Liebster award going, I am giving out the Liebster blog award to the following 5 amazing blogs which you should also check out if you haven't already:

(I should just say at this point that I have tried to choose blogs with less than 200 followers but in some cases I wasn't able to see how many followers they had).
  1. - her beautiful bakes are interspersed with passages from Jane Austen's works which makes a wonderful treat!
  2. - I must get the recipe for her oreo brownies!
  3. - this woman has an icing printer, I'm so jealous! And her cakes are amazing - check out the 80s one!
  4. - a trio of bloggers. I love their macarons, which I find particularly hard myself!
  5. - great photos and an amazing chocolate mousse cake!
It was really hard to choose just five - there are so many wonderful blogs out there that put mine to shame! And of course I want to give an honorary Liebster award to TheMoreThanOccasionalBaker but as she has already chosen her five favourite blogs, I thought I'd pass it on to five other people :-)


  1. Thank you so much Caroline for giving this award to me. I'm really glad that you like my space. Hope we'll get to meet more often & share more yummy bakes & crafts! HUGS & Have a lovely day, Caroline ^^

    1. You're welcome! I can't remember how I stumbled across your blog now but it was so different from just sticking up recipes and photos - not that there's anything wrong with that but I love how you make it a tribute to Jane Austen at the same time! And the layout and font really is beautiful.

  2. You are so sweet, Caroline!! Thank you SO much for the Liebster!

  3. Thank you for thinking of us Caroline, it was a lovely surprise and I'm really pleased you like the macarons.

    1. You're welcome - I'm a bit jealous really as I find macarons so hard!

  4. Thank you so much for my first blog award and your lovely comments! I haven't been blogging too long so it was a nice suprise. I am looking forward to checking out the other blogs you listed.

    1. You're welcome! That's one of the things I like about this - it's meant I've come across lots of new blogs!
