Time To Bake A Cake!

The French invented the only known cure for dandruff.It is called the guillotine - P.G Wodehouse 
Welcome to my baking Thursday.πŸŽ‚
Breakfast and Brew.
Now to leave the house to go to work!
I gives hubby a sloppy wet one πŸ’‹ before I leave to go to work.
On goes my summer coat and summer hat.
I walk down to turn on my lights.
Gets my newspaper.
Swaps my newspaper for my big stick.
I turned on my lights.
Off to my spot I went.
The Flower lorry came up the road, there was no room for where it normally parks. It just parked opposite me. The traffic started to build up. After five minutes it went up the road, turned round and came past and parked further down the road.
Besides that and cars not stopping the other side of the road, my morning shift went better than expected.
Finished in one piece.
Now back home to bake a cake.
Coffee first.....
Kenny the Kenwood comes out for a quick play.
This isn't a Birthday cake for hubby's birthday on Saturday. No, it's a leaving cake for a good friend, who works in the newsagent shop where I get my paper from and gossip from!
In the oven it went.
Now for some liquid lunch.
I spoke to hubby during his lunch hour.
Now to do the afternoon shift.
On goes those big big sunglasses.

Summer coat and summer hat goes on. I turn on both lights. Nips into Charity Shop for a look, chat, and laugh. Goes back to Sexy Beast to collect my  big stick.
I sit in the square to soak up the rays!
My friends arrive for a little rabbit up to when I start my afternoon shift.
I said goodbye to my friends.
A few car drivers fail to stop on the otherside of the road.
I made it in one piece.
Back home I go.
Starts on the cake.
Puts the tea in the oven.
Hubby comes home, and has a sloppy wet one πŸ’‹
Tea is served.
I needed more bits for the cake.
Nipped down to Morrisons.

Back home to unload shopping.
Quick look into today's newspaper.
Added more decorations to the cake.
Sleep Tea Time.
Friday Feeling is back tomorrow \o/

Drama & Crisis Rolled Into Cake!

Today was the day I was going to make that cake.....
I got out of the house to get some milk from Lidl...
 I asked in Lidl if they sold the Wonky box.
They didn't :(
 Dunelm selling nice stuff...↑↑
Now to start on the cake finally...
Wrote out the recipe..
 Things didn't start brilliantly when I discovered we had no coco powder!
Into Sexy Beast to get some...
 I decide to use Kane the Kenwood this time.
It didn't help, that as soon I turned him on.
He went way too fast, and I lost most of the mixture through the gaping hole of the lid...
 I added some more mixture, and poured it into the cake tins..
Into the oven it went...
Time for much needed Coffee....
 Once the chocolate sponges were cooled down, I knew I was going to have problems...
I made the peppermint chocolate mix to go in the middle of the cake. The top sponge was falling apart. I add the shiny chocolate for the top of the cake....
Oh dear, this isn't going to end right....
I made a chocolate collar and put it in the fridge to set...
In the meantime...
It's tea time...
 Chop Chop Time.
 Vegetables in Creamy Mustard Sauce with Chorizo
To the sound of groans in my house..
Back to watch more Bake Off...
