More cake! July 14, 2011

It’s so hot today and really not the day to be baking but here I am in the kitchen again as my only daughter requires a cake to take to camp tomorrow. She’s off to the Isles of Scilly for four days and I will miss her terribly. So today I don’t really mind being stuck in a hot kitchen as it means she will have her lemon syrup cake to take and share.

To make the process more bearable I dug out a couple of old fave cds, hits collections of The Doors and Johnny Cash, and had myself a little sing along, a bit of a bop. Just hearing the opening trumpet on ‘Ring of Fire’ makes me smile x

Good Friends July 12, 2011

I love it how with good friends they can pop round in the afternoon for a cup of tea and a slice of cake and then before you know it we’re all eating dinner and enjoying a few glasses of wine. And the children are all happily ensconced, watching a film, playing a game, spending time together. It was a perfect Sunday, just haven’t had time to jot it down until now.

Son no.3 desperately wanted to bake a Victoria sponge cake, and it had to be handmade, not in the food processor. So there he was, creaming butter and sugar, cracking eggs – he’s only 9. But he did a great job and it quickly vanished! And here it is, proudly displayed on my favourite charity shop vintage plate…

Good friends, good food, good music – that’s what it’s all about x
