We are off to a friend’s jubilee party this afternoon and have been asked to bring a plate towards the buffet. Jan particularly asked me to do a dessert and as there a few of us, I thought we’d better do a few! Richard fancied a sponge with fruit so I did a flat sponge with whipped cream and strawberries, raspberries and blueberries inspired by the union jack!
Will wanted to take an Eton Mess style pudding so I crumbled meringues, marshmallow and whipped cream into a bowl, added strawberries, raspberries and blueberries and then added another layer on top.
Zoe decided she’d like to decorate the fairy cakes and made a butter icing which she swirled on top with a piping tube. She then added a rice paper union jack.
So hope we’ve made a good contribution to the party table!

The BBQ was still hot after the meat had been cooked and eaten and Richard suggested that I make a cake or that Zoe cooked bread. We decided that welsh cakes would work as we could start heating the bake stone as the mix was being prepared. We weren’t sure if it work, but the bake stone got hot and held the heat for the whole batch to cook and even though everyone was full after the BBQ, they found room for fresh welsh cakes. Although we regularly cook outside on the BBQ, that was the first outside baking I’ve done and it was fun!
