That’s right. My girlfriend Sally bought me this **packet mix** last week ( I know what you are thinking, but c’mon, if Donna thinks its ok, than its ok.. right?)… so I tried it out.
I think the low rate of success had more to do with me rather than Donna’s mix. Donna’s mix was brilliant, my results were poor. I don’t think we make a good team. Im going to give it another crack next week!
A very exciting cookbook is about to be released very soon! Five weeks to be exact! Can’t wait to share some of the shots with you that Nikole Furnari captured and I styled! Told you it was exciting! Exciting! More to come soon!
Eat Cake and Be Merry… I sure will be doing that tomorrow… and you should too!
I have found lots of different shapes and sizes of baking tins for you to bake that perfect weekend cake in. I even managed to track down what I consider our ‘signature’ cake tin – the love heart… in THREE different sizes: small, large and extra large.. now that’s a lot of love in one cake!
Would you believe I am actually doing a last minute source for tomorrow’s market. I have been invited somewhere very secretive and very exclusive to have a poke around, so lets hope I find some delights for us all!
Above are a couple of shots of some new stock.
Old English platters, perfect proportions for roast chicken with heavy silver cutlery.
Trio of white French plates with gold trim.
Gorgeous old Tinware for baking cakes and making bread and also a set of cookie cutters.
Generous mule coloured French Napkins with silver cake lifters and pretty cake plates.
Citrus Juicer… do you have one… do you want one… I think everyone should have one… in particular a proper heavy moulded glass one!
Don’t get me wrong, I have tried others, I take my citrus very seriously you know. I have a Philippe Starck ‘Juicy Salif’ stashed in the cupboard (looonng way back in the cupboard though, you know that spot, once it goes there is never comes back.. one of those spots), I also have tried an Italian manual citrus press too (the clamp broke) and I have also been known to use my good ol’ bare hands. But nothing beats my moulded glass juicer.
Whenever we sell one of our glass citrus juicers at Travelling Wares I literally have a grin from ear to ear, its as though silently you and I have a secret that we both are in on – and that is that they may try but nothing can beat a well made classic!
