No kidding I'm glad to sit down now! I should probably do my ironing now but I need a rest! I've been baking this afternoon. It's my turn for the teas at the WRI on Wednesday so I thought I'd bake some things today that will keep ok till Wednesday. Well providing no-one eats them! I don't want to have to bake on Tuesday morning before work or in the evening after work. On the bright side I don't need to make sandwiches as my friend is doing them. That's because she doesn't really bake and she wants me to do the baking when it's her turn!
This is what I've made so far. I didn't actually plan to make so much but I always get carried away as I love baking!
At the back is my famous carrot cake. I love this cake as it's made in my combination microwave and it always works. It just needs to be iced with a mixture of cream cheese and icing sugar. On the same cooling tray is Anzac biscuits. We were given the recipe to use at our show in March so I thought I'd see how the recipe turned out. Front left is gypsy creams which I'll sandwich with butter icing on Wednesday. I need 4 for a competition. I'm not sure if I need them this month but we can always eat them! The loaf is a Mary Berry Dark Fruit loaf which I've never made before so I hope it's ok. Lastly my famous Rocky Road traybake. Should have Baileys in it but I usually just use what's in the cupboard, unlikely to be Baileys, and this time it's Tia Maria.
I still want to make meringues, shortbread and cupcakes. The cupcakes are for this month's competition but I might as well take some for the teas too. Which reminds me that the other competition is a ladies knitted hat. All I need to do is sew it up and make a pompom.
Well I'm off to do a bit of bloghopping and DT work now. If it sounds as if I'm putting off doing my ironing you'd probably be right.
I don't know what's happened to the signature I used to have. It seems to have disappeared. The HTML code is still there but it never seems to show up on my posts any more. Must be something I said!!
