I am so behind on blogging, both reading and writing. Life has just gotten so busy. No - I tell myself reproachfully, whenever I am starting to feel overwhelmed - not busy, full. And we're nearly at the Easter holidays...
Anyhow, back to cake.
For March's Cake of the Month I wanted to bake something for my mum, to share on Mother's Day with a pot of tea, after our walk with the dog. The occasion seemed to call for something elegant, palely interesting, the Grace Kelly of cakes, if you like. I chose an Earl Grey cake, with lemon buttercream icing. Of course, I couldn't pull off the delicately stylish confection I had in mind (nothing about me is elegant, nor will it ever be) but it was delicious.
I'm Jo, primary-school teacher, wife to Lovely Husband and Mummy to my delicious eight-year-old, Beautiful Girl. I'm living in the city, dreaming of the country and trying (and - usually - failing) to be a domestic goddess. Thank you for visiting, I do hope you come back soon.....
