Birthday Goodies.....

I hope that everyone is warm and well as you read this!!

We have only had a small sprinkling of snow here though the moors have had icy roads.
I don't remember it being this cold so early- it is my Birthday at this time of year and it is usually pretty wet and windy!
Talking of Birthdays- I must  tell you about the cake I made this year....



Turkish Delight and Rosewater Cake.....

It was DELICIOUS!!!!

It may sound sickly sweet but because of using dark chocolate powder in the sponge and then melted dark chocolate on the top it really cuts the sweetness of the turkish delight....

So a simple chocolate sponge has cut up GOOD turkish delight added into the mix, then baked.When cooled, melt some dark chocolate over a bain marie then add rose water and pour over the cake- I topped it with rose creams- again dark chocolate ones so not too sweet!

It didn't last very long and I DIDN'T eat it all...

In between cake baking and celebrations I also got some lovely goodies.....


 I think people know me quite well.....

After celebrations were over time to get preparing for Topsham Market, I am doing an ordinary one and a Christmas one so time to get busy.....


 Here's Millie.....


And Mollie.....


And  a hot chocolate gift set.....

I was up until late last night sewing and decorating festive hearts- photographs to follow!

Warm Wishes for a Wonderful Week,
