There has been very little knitting taking place over the last few days. I've been busy doing cakes. This one is for a friend of ours - apparently he wants a model railway for his birthday. Not sure this will last quite as long as a Hornby one though!
It has taken hours to make this one, but I've enjoyed it, I just hope they don't cut it when I'm around. I might cry!
Today is Mr Stressy's birthday. Instead of a proper cake, I got out my new best cook book and decided he could have cupcakes instead! Strawberry cheesecake cupcakes no less. A very unusual recipe and to be honest I didn't think they'd work. But they did. They worked very well in deed.
On closer examination of this book, I have realised that it is not for the dieting or weak hearted people amongst us. Every recipe seems loaded with sugar, butter and frequently chocolate (1.4kg of the stuff in one recipe I liked the look of!) I have now tried 2 things from the book and on both occasions found them a little too sweet for me - and I love sweet things normally. But still, these are only little cakes and maybe you aren't supposed to eat 6 at once.
It's my problem then really. Too greedy. (But as these have strawberries on, they must be healthy right?)
