Hello Folks,

Last week I gave you a little sneak peak of a birthday cake I had made for a little boy who can’t eat any food containing Lactsoe (Lactose is the sugar found in the milk of mammals) and also eggs.

When my driving instructor asked me If I could make a cake for his grandason I of course said yes. His daughter had been everywhere trying to find anybody that could make such a cake. I really dont understand why people are not more open and willing to help people with food allergies and intolerances. 

I had two recipes and made a few cupcakes for them to sample. In the end they decided they wanted me to make the cake. So I made a number two cake with a little elephant on top. The first time I made the sponge I wasnt happy and the recipe didnt like being doubled. I settled on making two thinner cakers then layering the then up with jam for the final cake.

I must admit even though I knew the cake had been no-where near eggs or any dairy products I was still a little concerened about them eating it and having a reaction. I have been told this week that everyone enjoyed the cake even those without allergies.


Have fun

“Home sweet home” in the northern quarter, Manchester.

Good Morning folks,
Hope you have had a nice weekend. I was going through the photos on my phone during the weekend and found this one. I took it in summer when I met up with friend for a coffee..then decided it was too hot for coffee and we opted for these milkshakes.
I ordered the chocolate mudslide it contained a shot of coffee, chocolate, milk, cream, and real chocolate brownie Blended thorough the shake. Finished with whipped cream and a square of brownie.
My friend chose the Oreo cookie shake and contained mini Oreo cookies. Both incredibly yummy, and we both felt like we had been naughty in a satisfying kind of way.

We were at a place called “home sweet home” it’s on Edge street in the northern quarter, Manchester.
I have ever only sampled a milkshake however the rest of the food looks yummy. Cocktails are also served in teapots what a perfect way to start a night out. Or spend an evening chilling out.
My friend had also told me she has been again since with her husband and they ordered chocolate chip cookies. They are baked to order and served straight out of the oven with a glass of milk……I will be back!!!
