Yummy Fun












Earlier this week - or very, very late last year - Miss V celebrated her 10th birthday. Always an occasion for fun and games, presents and baking, we shared the day together as a family at home, as well as a quick visit to Granny in the local aged care centre. Miss O made and decorated cupcakes topped with "V"s while Miss E senior baked the requested mocha birthday cake.


Speaking of cake - 




Miss E senior made the yummiest Christmas Pudding Truffles yesterday with some of a very large fruit cake she had baked for Christmas.  A wonderfully quick and easy recipe - she used orange juice in place of brandy. I do believe there is only one left.....

A very happy belated 10th birthday to Miss V. I adore her freckles!!

I'm always impressed with the baking & confectionery skills of your children, Karen. Those truffle balls look amazing.

It looks like she had a wonderful birthday!! I remember my first Derwent pencils at much the same age. And 4 years later, I remember getting a set of 72 from my grandparents! I still have most of them but at about half the original size.
