At my office we often have a pile of books that The Book People bring in and leave for us to peruse and hopefully buy. They're usually focused on children's books and local history and I don't often find any that I am interested in.
Last week, however, they had one that I immediately ordered:
The Homemade Sweetshop *grins* I love making sweets, and this is such a nice book. Lots of things I want to make and the layout is lovely.
I actually made one of the recipes for last weekend, when I met up with my mum, aunt and cousins for the Thames Pageant. I wanted to bring something to snack on, so I made a batch of these:
I completely forgot to take a picture, but they looked pretty much like the ones in the book *laughs* Very tasty they were too ;)
I also decided to try making cake pops to take with me (and I did remember to photograph them):
I didn't use a recipe, just made a cake, smashed it up and mixed it with ready made chocolate frosting. After a few failures, I got to grips with how to attach them to the sticks without them falling off, covered them and left them to set.
They were awesome *grins* Very well received by all.
