So, first of all as promised, the finished product from this morning’s sleepover bake off.
Obviously, they look delicious but they REALLY do taste good. Regardless of how you decorate them and let’s face it – who doesn’t love pretending to be Nigella when decorating a cupcake, this recipe from the Primrose Bakery really is THE best (in my humble opinion). See http://www.primrose-bakery.co.uk for more details.
So, that was the morning. Meanwhile, our roving reporter Andrew is currently out in Berlin – it’s a ‘business’ trip….and as we know, if you want the best out of an employee, you look after them. So, Andrew and his team have been duly wined and dined since they landed. Not that I’m bitter or anything. First stop for them – ‘The Sphere Restaurant’ at the Berlin TV Tower. How impressive! The only consolation being that I’m petrified of heights and would probably have fainted into the ever so delicate first course. Anyway, I’ve created a little montage to Berlin in the hopes that I will get to sample these delights myself one day.
So that’s the update from Berlin…..although more to follow and with more information and addresses.
My afternoon in the sunshine took us to glorious Chatsworth http://www.chatsworth.org Such a wonderful place especially in the sun. Coffee and cake just had to be had but no pics of this – I didn’t want to detract from the beauty of the girl’s earlier efforts. So that’s it today. Lot’s of baking, walking, chatting and laughing and of course coffee…..oh and a cheeky glass of Sauvignon this evening (actually a couple, maybe three). Like I said coffee and food – life’s daily essentials.
Night night xx
