I've been busy baking...
When I saw these heart shaped custard creams on Thimbleanna's Blog I just knew I had to make them... but it will probably be the only time I make them! They look good and taste damn fine but boy what a palava. For every one that I managed to sandwich together I must have broken at least two. You can find the recipe on "The Boy who Bakes" should you want to spend an hour or two fiddling about (and occasionally swearing) in the kitchen.
The blueberry and lime cupcakes were much simpler!
And all this baking is because tomorrow we have the private view of our Spectrum exhibition. Afternoon tea from noon until 4pm at Art Van Go... drop in anytime to see the exhibition and have free tea and cake!
I've also been busy making another matchbox book.
I was overwhelmed by the fabulous response I had to my post yesterday. I've had so many emails and pre-orders that I'm almost half way to my target. Thank you so much... you are wonderful blogging friends.
Book number two is an Alice in Wonderland themed book.
The matchbox is covered and lined with Tenniel's illustrations and has a little bottle attached that says "Drink Me"
The book is an origami folded flutter book and has a blue cover with a tiny "Alice " doll
It is held together with machine wrapped cords.
It's in my Etsy shop now!
