YOUR BAKES: Lemon Yoghurt Cake

28 cakes - I am absolutely stunned! There is such a beautiful array of Lemon Yoghurt Cakes this week, all with their own little personal touches and quirks. I'll put the amazing participation down to Mother's day yesterday, with a lot of the entrants baking this cake for their lucky mums and mums-in-law alike. Thank you to everyone who has entered, and good luck to you all. A special thank you to our wonderful judge Jan @janbagnall who took on the mammoth task of judging these beauties for us.

My personal favourite has to be this unofficial entry from John's son (@jboylie), I bet his mummy felt very special indeed!
