We built our house nearly 5 years ago now. My extravagance at the time was to put 2 ovens in the kitchen, side by side. My friends thought we were crazy (some thought that one oven was too many!). However, I have been nurturing Sarah’s cooking skills and she is now a very competent cook in her own right (at age 11 years) and can cook up a 3 three course meal without assistance. This afternoon we spent a very companionable time baking, side by side. She whipped up some Fudge Brownie Cookies (most of her baking incorporates chocolate in one form or other) and I made up some cupcakes – vanilla and chocolate with some inspiration from Nigella. Our lunchboxes will be the envy of our classmates and colleagues this week…..
I have been wanting to experiment with some zippered pouches after seeing many fine examples over recent weeks. I made up this little cupcake number which Sarah is going to stash in her school bag to keep some handy items such as tissues, money, and lip balm.
I also made up this Gingerbread pencil case using some gorgeous fabric that I ordered from Retro Mummy.
