Sweet treats ...........
More baking and another big batch of Victoria sponge - this mix went on forever. I wanted to make some plain buns for the freezer and some small buns to decorate as presents. I did this a few months ago and thought it was time I made some more to give away. A close friend of the family has been having a really hard time; she has recently been diagnosed with cancer and has started chemotherapy. At times like this it really makes you count your blessings and focus on all of the good things we have in our lives. I've felt really powerless as I can't do very much to help. I did come up with a few practical ideas and knitted some little pull on beanie hats to keep her warm as she has lost all her lovely hair and I thought some little sweet treats might tempt her to eat.
I had a very productive baking day as not only did I bake the buns, I also iced some plain rich tea biscuits with some spare fondant icing - these biscuits are an absolute favourite with the little ones and so quick and easy to decorate. I also had some sponge mixture over so added lemon juice and made a lemon drizzle cake.
