I made a cake!
It has been a busy weekend. I tidied the bedroom of shame (mine, sorry ours) and it was the school summer fair. Naturally I left all my baking until the last possible moment and spent a frenzied hour throwing flour and icing sugar all over the kitchen. And then I managed to make two cakes! One for the school and this one for my cleaning lady of 6 years who is going back to Bulgaria to open an eco-retreat. Yes, I know – it sounds like a spoof middle class crisis that you’d find on The Sunday Times problem page. Here are some tantalising pics of sumptuous raspberries riding on crests of whipped cream, nestled in bouncy sponge. Take that Nigella!
