Bake Sale!

On Sunday the 26th June I will  be having a bake sale in my driveway (The Grange, Wimbledon) to celebrate the summer, moving house, new job, it being hot, and the middle weekend of the Wimbledon Tennis fortnight. 

If you're in the village, come and have a wander down, I'll be there from 10:30am (ish) until 4.00pm (or until stocks last!)

There will be some of this:

And this:

Also this:

And possibly some of this:

Come on, you know you want to...

EDIT: I will be using the profits to sponsor my friend Stef in his 10k run for Paul's Cancer Centre and will be selling my Mum's Wimbledon Scenes postcards with the profits going to the same cause. 

GUILT-FREE CAKE!! Who could resist?

Call Me Ismail

Some weeks ago - never mind how long precisely - having little or no money in my purse, I got a Facebook message. A friend from school was wondering about buying some cinnamon rolls, and on Friday evening he did! I couldn't help but take a photo, and it was all I could do not to eat them.

He tells me that he and his family loved them. They're pretty more-ish. I'm trying to find a good recipe for a dough that can be refrigerated for baking in the morning. Then I will be the perfect housemate. Or at the very least I will be queen of the breakfast treat.

Pretty simple to make - make dough, roll and fill with melted butter, cinnamon and sugar. Roll up, cut, let rise again and then bake. Om nom nom.

Bank Holiday Birthdays

Two birthdays, one bank holiday and lots of cake. I made a carrot cake with maple frosting for my boyfriend (with his age in binary...) and a chocolate orange cake for my brother. Both delicious, but somehow I only managed to photograph my brother's one properly. Ah well.
