Greetings me hearties!
Father’s Day had a piratical theme for us at the weekend. Not for any particular reason….well perhaps because I bought a pirate ship mould in the Lakeland sale and just wanted to try it out 😳
Anyhoo, I made the cakes and froze them before the kitchen was stripped out, and decorated it last Friday as we had our father’s day celebration a day early so that my daughter and her fella could be there.
Our son and daughter in law kindly hosted (no kitchen remember?) and as Saturday’s forecast was good, we had a lovely afternoon in the garden, and a BBQ. In hindsight chocolate frosting wasn’t such a good idea! Phew it was scorchio 🌞☀ Luckily, Abigail had made a refreshing lemon meringue pie, and we had strawberries, raspberries and profiteroles too! Spoilt for choice 🍓🍰🍝 It was the first time Abi had made lemon meringue, and it was delicious! (Good old Mary Berry recipe) So good in fact that I bestowed the ‘Hollywood Handshake’👌
Unfortunately I didn’t get a picture of the pie, but I did get some of the ‘Galleon’. In my rush leaving the house, I forgot my Lego pirate figures to decorate it with though, so we raided Abi’s ‘stash’ and made do with Disney heroes instead!
In other news, I now have a plastered kitchen and we’re all set for fitting to start on Monday 😊
Before that though, there’s the small matter of a concert on Friday! It’s not too late to get tickets. Just follow the link below for information 😋
Have a lovely day
Stay safe and healthy
