Hope all the Fathers out there are having a wonderful day. We have spent the morning celebrating with the extended family – there were three generations of Fathers present. I have some lamb shanks in the slow cooker (a favourite of my DH) and we will be having a delicious dinner tonight. Sarah is busy at the moment baking up a special dessert.
I always like to give gifts from the kitchen -especially to my Grand-dad and Uncle as they don’t often have home baked treats. I baked up some Anzacs for them and packaged them up in some cute brown paper bags that I bought in Japan. I cut out a bag topper and label with my cricut.
I packaged up some of my dad’s favourite candy in a box that I made to put with his gift. I love being able to cut out tags and boxes on the cricut – it makes packaging up gifts so much fun. It is also a good way to get a creative fix when time is in short supply!
I took a chocolate marble cake to my parents place for morning tea. This cake is a favourite in our family – served with fresh berries and cream – it is delicious, and it always looks impressive when I make it in my rose bundt tin.
