    Technically I have not baked anything but........wemhave not gone short.

    Our neighbour baked us an apple pie to thank us for helping out during the snow

    DD baked a marble cake, banana cake, lemon drizzle, co!!!! cake and ginger bread shapes.

    Mr Spirit made bread

    and as I returned the pie plate to our neighbour a second neighbour popped round and to deliver another apple pie to thank us for doing their shopping when it snowed.

    I did delia's coffee walnut cake today. Her original recipe had a coffee buttercream top and filling, but in her last programme she 'updated' the recipe and said that nowadays she'd do it with mascarpone, into which you just whizz a bit of instant coffee powder and some sugar - much easier. So I thought I'd do that, but I only had coffee granules which I didn't think would dissolve in the mascarpone, and as the mascarpone seemed a bit sloppy I didn't want to dilute the granules with water, SO I added some sugar to the mascarpone and a slug of Camp coffee, and beat it all up, as instructed.
    It looked like non-drip paint, all sludgy, so I popped it in the fridge for an hour but it didn't stiffen up at all. The cake tasted delicious but I'll be going back to buttercream and I thought the mascarpone looked really nasty :eek:

    I've been wanting to make this since I saw the programme on Monday, but I don't know if I can find anyone to help me eat it as nobody seems to like coffee cake! If I do find any takers I'll take your advice and stick to the buttercream.

    I made a carrot cake today. :D
    If you lend someone a tenner and never see them again, it was probably worth it.

    Well, apart from a roast dinner & a stew from the turkey carcass, I have made some scones :D. The last of the Christmas rubbish has been consigned to the bin. Not very MS, but very necessary lol.

    Lemon and Yogurt Loaf Cake with a lemon glaze:-)
  • Today I baked a chocolate layer cake from the Primrose Bakery recipe book I got for Christmas. I'm practising it for a birthday cake that I need to bake next month, didn't quite realise how large it would come out though! Chocolate layer cake, anyone?!
