Ready for winter high tea and sitting on a frilled pale blue doily. Full of currants and cherries, a generous layer of golden marzipan iced with a snowdrift of royal icing. I couldn’t resist cutting myself a slice.
Presented on a wooden board, finished with a wee sprig of holly and a few crumbs left for any passing mousie!

Another nice day and I remembered to toddle to the top of the hill armed with a plastic box. My objective was a gathering of brambles and sure enough the nice big bush I had already photy’d was still covered with good sized fruit. I soon had at least a punnet full and a hand full of scratches/nettle stings and some purple fingers. Later in the day I decided to turn my hand to jam making instead of scoffing the lot in one go. Although not a great jam eater I am still pretty chuffed with the result – only one small pot but that’ll do fine. mmm…. sticky.
I must learn to pay more attention when I take photos… look what happens when I just snap away.
OK, he is a wee bit skelly eyed and was gobbled up in the next few hours, tasted OK for a first attempt in the new cooker. Future cakes will be a bit smaller, less daunting and no crumbs for the birds!
Finally achieved a new cooker! and some worktop space in my tiny wee kitchen. So pleased. Now the baking has begun!
I really should have done this years ago, yes, I admit it but I can’t force these things, evolution and all that. I promise to keep going with this project and not to get distracted, much.
