Saturday, May 31
The V. and I were busy the whole Saturday aftenoon preparing for our upcoming fund raising event at our church tomorrow. I finally found some recipes for easy to bake cakes and a batch of cupcakes. For the cakes, I baked ginger nut, chocolate and just a strawberry shortcake. My ex colleague gave me an easy recipe for apple cinnamon cupcakes. I tried it and it was yummy (real proud of myself ). The V. got sugar shock because he was licking all those left over gooey cake batter on the bowls. My mom used to tell me that would give me tummy ache. It turned out - it doesn't (judging from how much The V. had ). Look how much he is enjoying it.
It was a lot of fun baking. But around 7 p.m. when I got finishedI realized that it was also tiring. I thought I would have the energy to go to Frankfurt for a late shopping evening but this was not possible anymore. We decided to stay at home and watch a movie instead.
I decided to put the cakes in the oven for the evening because it is a bit humid here at the moment. This way the cakes looked as if they were in a special pastry shelf :) I haven't put the strawberries yet on the cake because I would do that tomorrow morning, I got an advice from a friend that that strawberry gets a bit watery so it won't look so presentable tomorrow. Thank you again for some of you who gave me new recipes to Raggold and Doris - I will plan to use them next time. Promise :) Will let you know how it will turn out tomorrow.
