well in case you didn't know there was a WOYWW crop at the weekend..... sorry..... you have probably read enough about it already, so I will keep it brief.
It was a brilliant day full of fun, food, laughter, chat and great friends, oh and we did a bit of crafting as well. 3 cheers for JULIA and LLJ LUNCH LADY JAN who organised it all.
We also swapped ATC's for the 4th anniversary; here is my bunch aren't they brilliant?
thank you everyone.
thank you everyone.
I made a gelli plate thanks to shaz in oz. who posted a recipe last week
It was really easy and cheap to make
I printed quite a few papers this is one of my favourites.
We all had a goodie bag to take home, complete with a lovely fabric tissue holder made by LLJ (now kept in my handbag) and a...... button challenge.......
The biggest challenge was to not eat them before I got home.... Opps ! I failed that one hehe
I am decopatch-ing a picture frame for a display at work, well someone has to do it :)
I will try and visit everyone who comments this week, sorry if I didn't get to everyone last week it was very busy.
PS sorry I forgot the cake recipe I will do it next week :)
many of you wanted the recipe NOW so here it is
Angel Food Cake
4 oz plain flour
13 oz castor sugar
12 egg whites
1 ½ teaspoon cream of tartare
3-4 drops vanilla and almond ess.
½ teaspoon salt
You will need an Angel food cake pan or a large non stick tin with a whole in the middle (savarin tin).
Sift flour and half the sugar 3 times onto greaseproof paper and set aside.
Whisk the egg whites, salt and C of T until thick.... like meringue.
Add the essence and the rest of the sugar a tbl spoon at a time until it forms stiff peaks.
Carefully FOLD in the flour and sugar... I use a large balloon whisk (slowly fold .. do not whisk), pour into the tin and bake in a preheated oven gas 5 for 35-40 mins.
When cooked turn the tin upside down with a bottle in the central hole. Leave until completely cold.
Serve with cream/ fruit / fresh lemon curd or chocolate.
