Another birthday cake

I made this for a friend of ours last week.  The top is sponge and the bottom is rich fruit cake.  I had a rather good response.  Our friends husband emailed me to say that they were very pleased.  I love to hear from people how they have enjoyed my cakes.

Sorry this post is so short, ive been rather unwell this week.

homemade pizza slices

Hi there
We had visitors come for tea this week at very short notice.  I guess its happened to all of us. I was totally unprepared and at a loss as to what to make for tea!  So i decided to make one of our family favourites.  Homemade pizza slices.
They are as easy as pie to make and take such a short time for preparation and cooking that you still have time to enjoy and chat to your guests!  They are also so easy to make that they are perfect for a child's cooking time!


fresh bread
 pasta sauce
mozzarella cheese
pepperoni slices (or topping of choice)

first slice the whole loaf into fairly chunky slices
spread on pasta sauce to each slice.
top with the cheese and topping
add salt/pepper/chili to taste

cook in a moderate oven for 30 mins,
serve and enjoy!

chocolate orange cake!

I recently made a christening cake for my niece read about it here
They gave me a box of chocolate orange as a present and its been sat in my fridge willing me to use it! In fact Im sure I heard it shout to me once!
 Picture for readers overseas who may not know what I'm talking about!

Now people who know me will know how hard it is for me to resist chocolate! In fact you maybe surprised that after all this time it is still in my fridge!
However it was and today was the day to use it.  i made a chocolate orange cake!  It lasted all of three minutes before my husband saw it and cut himself a piece!  Never mind.
It was good while it lasted!

Here is the cake and I have to say it tastes fantastic!  Yum!
  I under cooked it slightly to keep it moist and only added the topping to the top of the cake otherwise i think it would have been too sickly.  Its definitely a hit with the family!

The lost symbol

Ive just finished reading this latest book of Dan Browns.  I couldn't finish it quick enough!
It has the usual symbol solving problems and a amazing twist towards the end.  It focuses on the Masons rather than the church and gives a insight to their inner workings. After reading all of Dans books i have to say, this one is by far the best!  I'm hoping this one also becomes a film.   Go on treat yourself!
