Busy, Busy, Busy
Friday was treat box day and I really don’t know where the week has gone but another weekend has arrived and it looks like this weekend is going to be just as busy as the last one 🙁 No lie in for me then!. Time really does fly when you are busy and being self employed seems to create a whole lot of jobs that need doing.
Friday Treat Box
My Friday Treat Box today contained Devil’s Food Cake as a loaf cake and I must say it is delicious and moist. So easy to make and I didn’t follow any method when I made the trial cake. I looked at a few recipes including those I have to hand at home such as Nigella Lawson’s “Feast” recipe book and Mary Berry’s “Ultimate Cake Book” recipe book. Two of my favourite recipe books to inspire me 🙂
The other bake I have included in the treat box was Choc Chip Cookies and I used a recipe which I always go to when I bake cookies as my children love them. I love using the same old recipe and then changing the flavours etc., to create some other unusual or fancier flavour than before.>
Orders to Bake
My order for today was to make a batch of Cheese Scones to be collected by a local farmshop. I always bake extra of the Cheese Scones when I get an order as my husband, children and myself love them. However, there were not too many left spare so I decided to offer some for sale to my local customers.
Part way through the day I decided to bake a Chocolate Courgette Cake as a sample bake really but after trying it on my mother, my husband and myself I decided to offer the bake as a sample to my customers today. I like to get feedback, negative or positive, from my tasters as it helps me in the long run.
Saturday is run around day for me especially as I have an order to bake on Sunday for Peach Melbas. I love making Peach Melbas – watching the fondant icing fall down the cream filling is mesmerizing. I will be needing to nip to the supermarket to grab the ingredients as I don’t keep a stock of everything. Thankfully there is a supermarket close by so I don’t have too far to go. 🙂
