Sorry it's been ages since I've last posted; I've been reeaally busy!
Amongst many other things, I've been baking lots of cakes.
Cake decorating is a new hobby of mine!
This big french fancy cake will probably only make sense if you're a Brit - check out this link!
They're very popular bite-size cakes.
I made this flowery one to try out a new technique.
My brother's football team got into their league's final, so I made him a cake to celebrate.
The day before, my Grandparents had their 55th wedding anniversary!
Then I made these cakes for our Church's senior citizens group.
These last three photos show some of the cakes I made for my Church's youth group!
Onto other news...
A few weeks ago, I showed you how to make a raised bed for your veggies.
One reader asked me to show a photo of the vegetables when they had germinated.
Brianna, this is for you!
The middle row is salad lettuce, and the two outside rows are carrots. A raised bed is perfect for carrots, as they require lots of space for the roots to go deep down. Salad lettuce grows very quick, so it's a perfect partner for carrots as the plants don't take up much space.
Are you wondering why they've not got munched on by slugs and snails?
Simple. We found a perspex 'window' to put over the raised bed.
It's an easy way to keep them at bay!
