Girls Lunch Cupcakes!!

It was lovely having a week off from the play and I invited some girlfriends round for lunch to catch up on all the local gossip!! I made a goat's cheese,tomato and asparagus tart followed by strawberry cupcakes - I think they look quite impressive!!! Inside I placed a blob of jam and some chopped strawberries and the fresh cream was whipped up with a little sugar and a dessertspoonful of strawberry whisky. They were delicious - even if I say so myself!!!

Barbecue Party!!

Kenny and I decided we needed to get together with friends we hadn't seen for ages and the best way was to have a barbecue. About 30 arrived including kids and we had a great time.

Here are some of the puds I made - choc fudge cake, strawberry and blueberry pavlova and passionfriut and lime cheesecake.

Oliver's Birthday!!

My nephew, Oliver, celebrated his 2nd birthday on April 24th and a lovely barbecue party was finished off with this amazing 'Fireman Sam' cake made by my sister's friend Jo's mum!!!
He loved it!!

Afternoon Tea in Newcastle under Lyme!!

April in Paris went to the New Vic Theatre in April and about 300 yards away live Nick and Adam who are friends of John ( see earlier blog) who is a fabulous cook.
They invited me for afternoon tea and had made fantastic scones and a beautiful victoria sponge with a lemon curd filling -- gorgeous !!
