Carrot Cake and Relaxation

I am struggling to stick to my brief this week.  I have not done much sewing over the last few days.  My son was two on Friday so there were many festivities over the weekend and not much creating.

I did do a lot of baking – but did not take any pictures!  I need to think BLOG now when I make things.  Instead of making a large cake, I like to make a few batches of different cakes so there is something for everyone.  This time I made lavender cupcakes, mini scones and brownies.  Triple yum.  But you’ll just have to imagine how delicious they were and I’ll show you them next time.

I also have neglected the compost theme of the blog.  We have had big storms here today (for England) so it’s not ideal for photo taking.  My tomatoes aren’t ripening and I’m glum.

So, to cheer myself up, here is a photo of the lovely slice of cake I had in Teacup, Manchester last week.  We had the week off so with the child in daycare we headed off some R&R for the day. Cake and tea followed by a delicious spa.  Heaven.

Mmmm Carrot Cake
