And so Jake made a cake!
Thursday, 20 August 2009
The novelty of being off school since the end of June is starting to wear thin. After dinner tonight Jacob announced he wanted to make a cake, having never having shown any inclination towards baking in the past! It just so happened that Mavis had emailed me a recipe for an Apricot and Marscapone cake earlier this evening and I happened to have the ingredients to hand. (Well, I didn't actually have marscapone but I had regular cream cheese which seems to have worked.)
I can't see it lasting very long around here. If you've not visited Mavis before do go and say hello. I've known her for about a year since she first visited my Open Studio and she is lovely. She has also been on one of my courses although I don't know why as she is a very talented embroiderer. She gave me this card in the summer - she sketches people from behind and turns them into these super little embroideries. Aren't they wonderful!
