The camping trip ended rather early when the lack of bowls packed for breakfast was discovered. Happily for me it meant I could make the Scottish Breakfast Pancakes p 54 for husband’s birthday breakfast. More like a pikelet in size and texture these were well received. Especially nice as we have Canadian maple syrup in the cupboard at present. Unfortunately due to user error the photo of these has gone forever and I can’t take another because we have eaten all the produce!
Master 1 yesterday helped me to make Daddy’s cake. This means I used the food processor and he banged a whisk on the bench. It was our first baking experience together and a moment to savour! Master 3 helped to decorate the cake – today that meant eating pebbles as fast as possible and adding sweets to the cake. See photo! This cake is such a winner – another c/o- the fabulous Sophie and from my book pg 77. Works every time, moist and easy peasy to make. On my wishlist though is a 20inch deep cake tin – having to compromise at present every time I make it.
Also yesterday finished off a baby feely mat for delicious new baby arrival. Each square is textured so baby can feel during tummy time. Back in super soft lovely brushed cotton. Made up a Cath Kidston bag that comes with her book ‘Sew’. Easy – think it will be a gift as I have rather a plethora of bags to my name!
Started making birds using a template from ‘Sew’ for what will be a baby mobile eventually. Photo of progress included.
Have a gorgeous day.
