...especially if it involves chocolate too!
daughter mine had 2 cakes...one for her party and one for her birthday..rather like the Queen...only DM makes her own! Gone are the days of elaborate Barbie castle cakes made by Mum...with ice cream cornets for towers...actually it's quite a relief she makes her own as I am sure my cake baking is no where near up to her standard...tho of course I taught her all she knows...no, maybe not!
cake one had simple fondant icing made sophisticated with chocolate flicks...
and chocolate ganache for the middle...I can hardly say it let alone tell you how to make it!
cake two was a New York baked cheesecake with amazing delicate chocolate icing...mmm!
I want to celebrate my blog too...thanks to you all for 'bearing with' the lack of pics... and to all at Blogger...I had every faith and you came up trumps for me! It is so nice to be in technicolour again! If I knew where you lived I'd bake you a cake...or better still get DM to do it!
So it is now a verrry short time indeeed to Christmas...and where am I? I ask myself...well of course the house is now imaculate, all presents bought, wrapped and posted too... cards made, decorations hung, mince pies lined up in the freezer....all that's left is to put a ribbon in my hair...in my dreams!
Never mind, I like a challenge...so I will just muddle through as always... lower my standards and aim for happy times as we are very blessed and fortunate in where and how we live, and our house is full of love and creativity, as long as we are together and fit and well that is the best Christmas present I could wish for...
still a bit of hoovering and a tidy up wouldn't hurt...see you later! have a great weekend xx
