In Need Of Chocolate Cake!

 "Every time a bell rings, an angel gets his wings." —Zuzu Bailey (It's A Wonderful Life)
Welcome to my Thursday Coffee Morning πŸ§‰
Out comes a great Christmas Jumper↓
Breakfast and Brew time.
Time to add the thermal vest....
With the Minion Christmas Jumper!
Good frost last night, good job I covered up Sexy Beast.
Uncovered Sexy Beast.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet one πŸ’‹before I left.
On goes my Winter coat, two hats and my winter gloves.
I gets the newspaper.
Swaps that for my big stick.
Now to turn on my lights.
Oh dear.
Plenty of Tank Drivers about this morning.
(Tank Drivers are those drivers that don't scrape all the frost of their windscreens and look out of the windscreen through a little hole!)
Plus it being cold, I am glad I have lots of layers on!
At least the sun was coming out.
(Not good for this afternoon, as I am going to have low lying sun problems)
Finished in one piece.
Exchanges my winter coat to my teddy coat.
I walk down to the Public Loos and then to the local coffee shop for a much needed coffee.
Visited the Charity Shop.
Got a bargain boxset.
I gets my cake box out of Sexy Beast.
Then onto the Coffee Morning.
I tried 15 times on the raffle, and didn't win a thing :(
I bought a line of raffle tickets.
Let's hope I win something.
Coffee time.
I bought the Chocolate cake :)
I said goodbye to everyone when I finished my coffee and cake.
Back home.
Another coffee is needed.
Liquid Lunch time.
I didn't get a phone call, so I didn't win nothing on the main raffle.
Now out to do the afternoon shift.
On goes those big big sunglasses.
Big winter coat, winter hat and gloves.
I goes and turns on my lights.
Low lying sun alert!
Has a little rabbit with my friends up to the time I start my afternoon shift.
Oh dear, it went from bad to worst!
In the middle of the road, car comes up the road too fast, slams his brakes on!
Nearly ended up over his bonnet!
Car after car failed to stop on my side.
BOINGs were given out freely! 
Was so glad to finish in one piece!
Back home for a brew!
Then it was time to start on tonight's tea.
Hubby came home and had a sloppy wet one πŸ’‹
Tea is served.

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...
