DSC_2725I was asked by the Press team at  www.findmeagift.co.uk   if I would like to review some gifts on their website and I chose a silicon cake mould which makes a lovely flower shaped cake which when cut into slices, creates beautiful heart shapes and an egg separator

This Pluck  egg separator is a nifty gadget.

After cracking the egg/eggs into a dish, squeeze the bulb gently over the yolk, release and the yolk is sucked into the device. DSC_2685 DSC_2689

Squeeze again in a separate dish to release the yolk. DSC_2697 DSC_2698

I washed the egg separator before use and the first time I used it, I let Evie who is 4, have a go with it.

He he he! Disaster. She squeezed too hard and the plastic nozzle dropped off onto the egg yolk and burst it.

When I used it, I had no such bother, it worked perfectly!

I loved the cake mould too.DSC_2674After washing I greased it and floured it and made my cake

DSC_2699 The cake came out easily….Here it is!

Clandestine Cake Club (Spen Valley) at Dewsbury Elim Church

10 Nov

Spen Valley Clandestine Cake Club had a lovely gathering of bakers and guests for our meeting on 9th November 2013 at the Dewsbury Elim Church. It was a great venue and we were made very welcome.

Our theme was “All things bright and beautiful”

Here are the bright and beautiful cakes we enjoyed:

So sorry to one of the bakers, I seem to have missed taking a photo of one the cake individually.

Our next meeting is on 14th December in Liversedge  and I am now taking bookings on the Clandestine Cake Club website. This meeting will be ‘Cake and Christmas Craft’ where there will be a chance to make Christmas decorations, although non crafters are welcome to join us for the usual cake meeting. The theme is ‘Tis the season to be jolly’
