Funday Sunday Competition

Sorry I haven’t been around for a while but I’ve been busy revising  for the first of my GCSE’s.  I’m only doing three this year chemistry, biology and physics and so far I’ve taken two and I have physics on Wednesday then yay it’s half term.

Although I have been revising I did manage to enter two cakes into  the 5th Abergavenny Great Bake Off competition.  The first was a traditional cake and I went for a layered sponge filled with homemade lemon curd and fresh cream.  This cakes were auctioned after the judging and I think this made over £20. (all towards Cancer Research & Sarcoma UK).  My entry didn’t win but I did come second with my carrot cake cup cakes in the cupcakes section although I don’t know how much they made for charity

This is a great local event and I love it especially when the sunshines.  Lots to do and a family day out.

Hopefully after my last exam on Wednesday all will be back to normal and I’ll be posting more regularly.  Have a good week………..

Mokatines

These lovely Mokatines are made with a genoise sponge which is made by melting the butter which is then set to one side to cool slightly.  The eggs and sugar are whisked until the mixture is pale and mousse like.  The flour is then folded into the egg mixture and the cooled butter is folded into the mixture and the sponge is then baked for about 35 minutes.

Genoise sponge is thought to be lighter and more flavourful than a traditional sponge

I had great fun decorating the mokatines with cream using cocoa and coffee flavours and  to finish off some nuts and obviously the eating was even more fun
