Cake club first. Our inaugural meeting was set for 26th January and I was a bit nervous about it. I won't lie to you, I'm not a natural joiner (socially speaking, not whittling) and dread that glazed look my victim gets when I attempt a bit of small talk - seems not everyone loves Escape to Chimp Eden as much as me - so I approached it with a bit of trepidation. I shouldn't have worried. We had a blast. Everyone there was so much fun and the cakes were amazing. You may remember I was toying with rhubarb for my contribution, the theme being "cakes with benefits". I love rhubarb. I love any word with a silent H. And I love custard. So I tried this little number. It went down well but if you want the full S.P., my trusty co-organiser @riversidebaking has done a splendid post about the meeting so do have a gander.
Anyway, I won't bang on about the niece. Like Escape to Chimp Eden, it's a subject I find endlessly fascinating but I can feel your eyes beginning to glaze.
how to answer the iPhone to his techie friends. And he's flaunting these drinks all over Twitter, knowing full well that I stalk him. So please join me in a group tantrum and don't even look at the lovely stencil effect.
I don't know about you, but having a tantrum always makes me feel out of sorts. What to do to perk us all up then?
I have no words.
