Ruby's Birthday Cake

I can't believe my cute little niece is 1 already!
I used the white chocolate mud cake recipe from Exclusively Food , but made it gluten free by replacing both plain and self raising flour with gluten free flour, adding baking powder to compensate for the self raising flour, and adding almond meal to help keep in nice and moist.
For the icing, I used the ganache recipe from my macaron class several years ago.
Unfortunately the chequerboard effect didn't work properly, but it still looks pretty cool.

 We are having a bumper harvest.
 Lucky it turns out that they make great chips.

Another way to carry my baby. And I'm getting the hang of it.

Christmas Sewing

I finally dyed my hand spun yarn. A mountain of cherry Kool Aid, and a little grape. I'm pretty happy with the colour.

Brazilian Stout Cake

From Saved By Cake by Marian Keyes. It smells a bit like gingerbread. And I might not even get to taste it because it's heading off to work with Andrew.
