Blame the cold weather in London (we had snow last week), the credit crunch, or simple greed, I am on my 2nd cake of the year. the 1st one was a chocolate and beetroot cake, deliciously moist, dark and chocolaty.
Whilst today's is a simple Victoria sponge with fresh raspberry, simple recipe.
Just returned from Frankfurt Messe where the Ambienete fair is held. Most certainly felt the cooling in economic climate, fewer people, in the high end stalls, and very busy in the mid to lower price end.
will post some links to companies that I liked.
p.s. problem with home baking is that you not only lick the bowl and spactula, you eat that little slice extra as well, off to to do just that.
