I had a text today that really made my day.
I held a Cake Break at work on 10th May and raised £275 so was feeling quite pleased anyway. I always raffle off a cake or cupcakes and this year I wanted to do something special. My son had bought me Cake Days by the Hummingbird Bakery so I baked their Sweet and Salty Chocolate and Caramel Cake for the raffle.
The teacher that won it managed to freeze it until this weekend for her 50th birthday as she had lots of family coming over. She sent me a text to say it’s a real hit. Her eldest son has gone sailing and has phoned her to make sure she is saving him some and her mum has had 3 pieces already.
I had had a practice run (just one layer) at this cake the week before my Cake Break as the caramel and the frosting were a bit tricky but I was still worried that the finished cake wouldn’t be up to scratch so I’m so pleased that everyone is enjoying it.
I really want to work my way through the whole Hummingbird book but the cakes aren’t cheap to make so it may take a while
Hope you are all enjoying the sunshine. I pulled up a few weeds in the garden while making the most of it. I’ve also got two loads of washing dry as I think it’s back to winter tomorrow …
