I'm loving the fact that I get to spend another week at home - I'm such a homebody! I would much rather stay at home with my family than go out on the town at night. A cup of coffee some needlework and something decent on TV and I'm happy! lol !
In the garden my summer flowers are still blooming.
In the hedgerows the spindle trees are looking their best.
Fay has already been out witching at a party.
Maurice wasn't too sure about being a witch's cat!
Saturday was cold but sunny so OH and I visited a local National Trust house.
I also made some more fairy cakes. These are a lurid green inside and covered with a chocolate buttercream and icing shapes, cut out using my new cutters.
4oz/100g granulated sugar
8oz/200g SR flour
pinch of mixed spice
2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
3 tsp ground ginger
4oz/100g butter or margarine
4 tbsp golden syrup
Preheat oven to 160'C.
Mix dry ingredients together.
Rub in butter or margarine until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
Add golden syrup and mix to a dough.
Roll out on a floured surface and cut out shapes.
Bake on a greased tray for approx. 6 - 7 minutes, or until lightly golden, turning halfway through baking. Leave to cool slightly before moving onto a rack.
Can also be made in a processor.
OH returned home from a business trip to New York with these Kisses.
