I baked some more fairy cakes today :)

This time, however, we made our own, instead of using a cake mix, and, as we hoped, they tasted much better, and texture was a lot less rubbery too!

We decided to go a bit mad, and ended making about four different types: plain, chocolate chip, coffee, and coffee chocolate chip.

The coffee chocolate chip were the best, I think next time we may make a batch of just those :)

I, of course, took a few pictures:

01. That one was a chocolate chip one, wish I'd put more chocolate in it though!

02. That was one of the coffee ones, could have had more coffee flavour in it though, I think I need to buy coffee essence next time - as it's much stronger than normal coffee granules.

03. I decided to take a picture of the whole tray afterwards, I wish I'd thought of that before I'd taken a picture of the two separate ones, but ho hum. The five on the left are coffee chocolate chip, the four on top (excluding said choc chip) are plain coffee, the four below it are ordinary chocolate chip (hence the massive chocolate chip in the middle one, I nommed that one!) and the two bottom ones were just plain fairy cakes.
As you can see, the cake in the top right-hand corner tried to run off, it was worse than that actually, but I broke it off and ate it! I took a picture of it, but it disappeared somewhere...

Unfortunately, I can't imagine that I'll be able to bake every weekend, which is a shame as me and my mum both enjoy it immensely!

Pretty summer dress.

So I've been salivating at the pretty dresses on ASOS since the weather decided to pick up and become lovely and sunny, and thought I'd share a beautiful find that I feel I must have!
Look at how pretty it is! It comes in two colour, this pink colour, and a taupe colour, and I shall have to go for the taupe colour, as pink is not my colour in the slightest! It is very pretty, isn't it? However, I've heard the weather shall go back to being cool next week, which is irritating, but Summer isn't too far away at least! What finds have you come across recently?

Baking Bug :)

I know I said I wasn't going to post much here, but I've been baking today, and I never bake really so I thought I'd do a post!

Soooo me and mum found a Victoria sponge mix in the cupboard, and we decided to make it into fairy cakes. The mixture was pretty runny, but likely, it cooked fine and wasn’t too soggy as we thought might happen. Obviously the texture wasn’t as good as it would have been had we made them with our own mixture, it was slightly rubbery, but only slightly, and they tasted fine!

Omnomnom. They were lovely.

We also made a coffee one each! We’ve not tasted it yet, but the mixture was gorgeoussss, so fingers crossed!

After making the cakes, me and my mum still had the baking bug, so, we made a quiche!

It’s not as burnt as it looks here, but it was very golden brown. It was perfect five minutes before we took it out of the oven, but such is life. We didn’t have any scales, nor a rolling pin, so we improvised, using a bottle of Malibu as a rolling pin (!!) and guess work for the quiche as she hadn’t made one for years! However, the pastry was a bit over done, and stuck to the bottom of the pastry dish, because we forgot to grease the dish! Apart from that, it was loveeeely. We put green peppers, tomato’s, cheese and ham in it, onmnomnomnom!

I made a pastry doughnut ring out of the excess pastry, muahahahah :)

So I'm using this so I can follow some beauty/fashion blogs that I like. Not to blog myself. I may change my mind but for now, I shan't be posting much, or at all. Unless I find some beautiful garments or trinkets, then I may pop them on here :)
