today has had a good start as my Director bought bacon sandwiches for everyone in the office. now, even though i am supposed to be on a bit of a health kick at the moment the temptation of white bread with crispy bacon and lashings of ketchup was too much to resist so i indulged!
luckily i have a healthier and more nutritious lunch option of goats cheese, rocket and cucumber salad with honey & mustard dressing so all is not lost.....
it is my friend Belle's birthday this weekend so tonight or tomorrow i am going to be making her some (hopefully) delicious cakes as part of her birthday present. as we are having such unseasonably warm weather this week i shan't use the sort of recipe i usually would at this time of year which would call for warming spices, toffees, caramels and chocolates - thick dense cakes with wonderfully rich toppings.
no, because indian summer is upon us i am honouring it with my choice of cakes;
- orange cupcakes with cream cheese and orange oil frosting
- lemon cupcakes with rosewater icing
i will of course let you know how i get on with these recipes and will post photos of the end result!
