Hi all, I hope that wherever you are, you will have a lovely Easter.
Today I want to forget about the possibility of nuclear missiles, but to remember all of our brothers and sisters living in war zones, or having to become refugees. To remember also the lost and lonely on our own doorsteps. Today I am thankful and hopeful for an end to their misery. Because miracles do happen. Today I will celebrate the miracle of Jesus while praying for those less fortunate than us.
I shall be spending today with my loved ones, eating, chatting, laughing and generally feeling very blessed to have my family close. A great big thank you to James and Abigail for hosting once again. We shall also be celebrating my lovely mother in law’s birthday (a couple of days early, but who’s counting?) It’s a busy time for birthdays in the family this next few weeks. M.I. L. on tuesday, my hubby’s the week after, then James the week after that. And in between, a big celebration for Abigail’s new qualification and job! Lots of cake opportunities! 😊
This week I made a cake for a lovely man, Ray, who is 70 years young. It was a surprise cake ordered by his equally lovely wife Lindah. I really hope he liked it, and that he enjoyed his family celebration yesterday 😘
That’s him in the bus! Ray rides the buses, chatting to strangers, and whenever it’s appropriate, he spreads the Word. Remarkable 😇
Also this week, I’ve tried out a ‘watercolour buttercream’ technique, and the on trend ‘drip cake’. Both on the same cake! It’s not bad but I think I will have to tweak my ganache ratio, as it was way too thick! Also I was a bit heavy handed with the food colouring 😟 I was going for a pastel yellow, not neon custard! Oops! 😂
I also made an Easter themed birthday cake for Rose 🌹 (M.I.L.)
Here they are, with a recap of my other Easter goodies 🍰
Until next time,
Stay safe and healthy
