I can't tell you how happy these photos make me. They are full of delicious things and good memories. You can just see Morag's cup in this one, and the tea pot that has delivered us so much delight. Plus there is chocolate melting in a pan for the white chocolate roux icing that we were making which was genius and I can't believe I've never known about this icing before, but I am definitely having a party at home (when it gets cooler) where there will be some sort of cake acting as a vehicle for this icing - I can't even explain how delicious it was, it was like eating icecream, almost.
We had loads of fun constructing a story about a Roman and a horse and Hermione
Then the cake and the icing were brought together in a beautiful whole, with cherries on top.
And after a short amount of hilarity, we each ate an ENORMOUS amount of cake. It was a cake party that really required at least 12 people to eat the cake - we plan to do that next week.
We will be making rose water and pistachio cake with chunks of turkish delight; and a citrus and poppy seed cake. We are also contemplating a red velvet cake - but we will see how many people are coming.
