Steering away from renovations slightly, I thought I'd share my weekend of baking havoc. I designed the flyers for the local Hither Green Week and thought I'd quite like to have a stall in the local food, arts and craft fair which opened the week of festivities. I decided to undertake... with lots of help from my sister, D, selling things like cupcakes, brownies, lamingtons, injure-bread men (injured gingerbread men - proceeds went to GOSH) and pupcakes - puppy-friendly cupcakes! (proceeds to South East London RSPCA)
We both booked a Friday off work and spent 10 hours sifting, stirring, baking and icing a LOT of baked goods! And also, for fun, hyping up the lamingtons (an Aussie specialty) on Twitter which a few local residents were a little bit excited about!
Here are a few pics of the day, the flyer and also a link to my cooking blog "Surfing the Silver Spoon" which goes into a little more detail of the carrot cake we baked.
|L-R: A few ingredients; icing the famous lamingtons; a lot of washing up; sparkly cupcakes; D taking biscuits out of the oven; lamingtons; injure-bread men; our stall; looking out at the fair; our resident bunny; and a satisfied customer!|
