A Plan

There was a plan... a quick trip to the supermarket and then a morning spent baking for our private view tomorrow, followed by an afternoon pottering in the garden and possibly followed by a bit of sewing...
 
 
I started with my speciality... the spongey sponge... but in individual sized portions.

 
While I was about it I made a full size version for my boys at home lest they feel left out.

 
Then there were lemon macarons...

 
Giant Jammy Dodgers...

 
but as I filled the Custard Creams at 6 pm I realised that perhaps things weren't going quite to plan... and the garden and sewing were abandoned for another time.

 
I know... why make Custard Creams when you can buy them at every little corner shop but humour me... I've enjoyed myself. And now we've lots of treats for the SPECTRUM Private View at Art Van Go from midday tomorrow. Do come and join us if you are in the area.
The exhibition is looking good!

  5. Ooh, can't wait. And I'm so glad I'm friends with a mad woman who makes her own custard creams, (that's not the only reason I'm your friend, obviously) x

  6. Home made custard creams sound really good and I'm quite sure they taste a million times better than corner shop ones. You must share the recipe Gina!
    Have a great day tomorrow. :)

  8. I agree - store custard creams would be absolutely NOTHING like your fabulous cooking. I hope the day is a tremendous success - and yes, I would love some photos too please - tha is, if you ever have any spare time to post them!

  14. I'm trying not to drool all over the keyboard! Too far for me to come to sample those delights but I'm sure there'll be plenty of other takers. Have a great weekend.
