I'm glad that so many of you enjoyed my photos of our break in Yorkshire, I think that we probably got the best weather the UK has had on offer for a while now, at least the rain kept off for us even if the sunshine was week :-)
Since we got home i don't think it's stopped raining, seriously, where is the summer!! If someone is hogging that big yellow thing in the sky, please remind it that it is supposed to be summer here!
David Hasslehoff was on some TV programme or other the other night and came out with a great observation, he said that in the UK we have two Winters, one in the Winter, and one in July! Well David, you got that right, this year anyway, lol
I was browsing the books in Tesco this week and came across this gorgeous book on offer.
There are some calorie laden cakes on offer inside, and i tried my hand at one of the recipes this afternoon
Cookies and Cream Cupcakes
This is my effort compared to the picture in the book.
Not bad for a first attempt!
Taste wise they are beautiful, i'm not usually a lover of chocolate cake, (I prefer my chocolate to come in a block!) but these are so light and moist, they melt in the mouth,
I think next time i make any i will use smaller cases though, they were a bit on the large size :-)
If anyone is interested i will put the recipe up in a couple of days (in a separate tab).
Well, that's it, no stitching lately, knitting needles have taken over, but no photos to share, although, remember that Hip to be Square blanket in my last post? I unravelled it all!! I tried out the i-cord border, and although every one raves about the i-cord (apparently 'I' is for idiot, as in anyone can do it), i just couldn't get it to look right, perhaps i was being too picky, but one side looked fine, the other side looked odd. So off it all came and i started again, this time i'm adding a seed stitch boarder as i go. Hopefully it will look OK this time, i take photos at the weekend and you can judge :-)
Until next time x
