We’ve been busy, busy, busy – trying to make the most of school holidays before the
But in between visits to the beach, pool, museums, moonlight cinema and art gallery, I managed to pull off three decorated cakes (four if you count MC Senior’s Harry Potter birthday cake). They look a little messy but I was trying to balance out taste and decoration. So I used ganache for two of the chocolate based cakes and a lemon-curd cream cheese icing (home made lemon curd added to cream cheese icing) for the lemon based cake. The weather was so hot that it was pretty tricky trying to get a smooth finish on any of the cakes – I kept having to refrigerate them. But I think the recipients were happy with them.
Have a great weekend!

Don't ask, don't tell (actually, I'm not too sure either:))
Oh, btw, if you’ve noticed the lack of an EOWTTA this week, my apologies. Been a bit busy but mostly just too hot to think straight – plus I’ve been on a manic mission to turn out the kitchen drawers because, well, because I do things like that from time to time ☺
