    Victoria sandwich in the oven and a huge vat of dried peas in the slow cooker for pea and ham soup.

    I will add ham stock, shreds of cooked ham and seasoning later on, The soup will be stashed away in the freezer for colder days and the cake will go within the first few hours I cut into it I expect. I only made it because I am fed up of being asked to pay £2.75 for a sliver of cake from a cafe that tastes like it's been made with lard rather than butter!
    :hello: :wave: please play nicely children !

    Yesterday we (I have my niece and nephew staying who are 12 and 10) made fairy buns with salted caramel frosting which they then covered in bling (with gold shimmer spray), marble cake, parkin and scones. Today we are attempting GBBO jaffa cakes. There will soon be a shortage of sugar and eggs in W Yorks as dh made chocolate fondants with them the day before.

    I chanced upon a re-run of a GBBO episode last night - the one where the technical challenge was tarte au citron. That could seriously tempt me back to my sugar-addict ways. :o

    Sounds very yummy indeed. I'm looking forward to hearing what people come up with for the Macmillan Coffee morning.

    I think I'll be making pear pastries with the fruit from my granny's tree.
