new toy!

Tuesday, 4 November 2014

I’ve got a new toy! A new baking tin which is very festive, very christmassy and I’m dying to start baking with it. It is a Nordic -Ware tin. A bundt tin. It is super detailed sot the cake results are going to be fabulous! I have a great gingerbread recipe which I think will work beautifully, the dark sponge with icing sugar dredged over. Ooh I’m so excited about Christmas! Keep an eye on the cake bar for the arrival of the bundt cake. If you have any suggestions of a cake flavour to bake in it then let us know.



country living fayre glasgow

Saturday, 1 November 2014

It’s that time again folks. The time when you prepare yourself, and your purse to go on a Christmas Spending Spree! The thing about this particular fayre however is that all of the exhibitors are independent businesses of artisans, designers, bakers and makers. You can be sure that everything you buy here is supporting small businesses.  Yea!


I particularly like to hang around the cheese stalls hoping to sneak some samples and then there’s the artisan cider stall! I usually come away with truckle cheeses, handmade sweets, unique christmas decorations for my tree not to mention pressies for all my pals!


I’ll be going along this year with some friends but if you wanted to go along yourself then you have to get over the Country Living Website and get your tickets before they sell out!
