First time cakes

Hello folks,

Well it’s been a few months since I said hello. Hope your all happy and enjoyed the hot weather we had a few weeks ago.

I’ve had a few “first time” cake orders on, what I mean by that is the first time I’ve attempted to make a cake in that style.

I made a Juicy couture hand bag cake also a topsy turvy cake for one of our friends 30th birthdays.
I had so much fun making them probably too much ha ha. The 30th cake had a mix of a few different things our friend likes some where on his cake from “UP” the movie to a calypso theme, lets not forget his pet cat either.

I also attended a new food market outside the Lowry outlet centre in Salford. It was very windy and rained a lot on the second day. I did however meet a lot of nice people and traders.

I’m not too sure if you know but I am due to have a baby boy anytime really. He was due the 4th August so had already kept us waiting a few days.

Well nice talking to you again guys, I will try not to leave it too long next time.

Have fun Rose xxx

Pancake day….take two!!

Hello there,

So its snowing again and myeyes are still stinging from walking the dog in a blizzard and getting snow blown into them.

Tonight’s post is about pancakes yummy, I took these photos on pancake day and yes didn’t post them to you!! They are really easy to make and are nice for breakfast especaily at the weekend when its cold outside 😉

1, Put about 200g of flour in a bowl with 50g caster sugar and 1tsp of salt.

2, Whisk an egg and put into the bowl, I then add milk and whisk at the same time until I get a batter that just coats the back of spoon. Whisk like crazy to ensure you have no lumps.

3, Put a non stick pan onto the heat until it smokes, take the pan off the heat and wipe out with kitchen cloth.

4, Put the pan back on the heat with some oil and wait until the oil is smokey (wont take long) then pour in a little of the panckae mix.

5, You will notice the mix dry, bubble and come away from the edge of the pan, it is now safe to try and turn/flip it over.

6, When the pancake has been turned over  it only needs about 30 seconds to colour that is if the pan is hot enough.

7, Place onto your plate and serve how you like it!! This year I had mine with blackberry compot and chocolate Philadelphia.

Real Royton Food Market (Feb & March)

Hello,

As there was no market in January we were all eagar to go in Febuary even though the weather was shocking and it was more of a challenge to stay dry rather than warm. My stall had Valentines theme with chocolate heart lollies, chocolate kisses and red velvet and heart shaped cake pops. All the usual favourites were back including the Rainbow cake that I mistakenly replaced with Christmas battenburg at the December market.

The March market was of course Spring Easter theme and the sun even made a little appearance when the clouds blew over. If you read yesterdays post the Easter gifts were on sale and available to order with a few mother day gifts.
