I recently saw an advert on TV for a new magazine, Cake Decorating. I tend to stay away from these type of publications which build up in to a set as, after the first issue, the price shoots up and you can end up paying hundreds of pounds for the entire collection.
I didn't think it would harm to buy the first issue though, it was only 99p and came with two butterfly cutters and some pink glitter. I haven't had a good read through it yet, but after a quick flick I can see that it is rather good. Not only does it tell you how to decorate cakes and cookies, but it also has recipes in it too. I don't really have enough patience for cake decorating myself, but I'm sure that Eleanor would love to give it a go.
I've spent this morning in the kitchen, first of all making lasagne for tomorrow's dinner as Eleanor is competing in a singing festival late afternoon, so now all I have to do is shove the lasagne in the oven when we get home. I made enough to freeze one too. Then I made some Caramel Shortbread. This is another recipe from Attic24. I'm making my way through Lucy's recipes as they're all so easy, and so delicious. These are a batch I made last week, today's are still setting in the fridge.
I can tell you, it's very hard to stick to healthy eating when there's these scrummy goodies in the house.
