Chocolate truffles was the next up - mix left over cake (I know, that's a sin!) with melted chocolate and leave to set.
And milkshake cakes. Ok they aren't exactly milkshake cakes as such. Make up your favourite sponge mix. (I like Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's recipe) and add milkshake syrup - enough for one serving. So for the mix I used it was 25mls. A handful of white chocolate chunks for good measure too, which I felt would compleiment the raspberry milkshake syrup very nicely, and it did.
I try not to mess too much when baking because it often has disastrous results...but this one worked and I'm sure it's one I will use again in the future.
Craft-wise, well I've begun a crochet'd scarf and have completed the crochet'd flowers that I'm making for wedding favours - only the sewing up to do and the putting-it-all-together...the most boring and labour intensive part I think, and the one I'm dreading. Forgive me for not posting pictures of them when complete, but I do want them to be a surprise for all. Photo's after the big day!
On my knitting needles is a blue and white striped ensemble that will one day, I hope, resemble a tea cosy. I'm making it up as I go along though so it might be interesting to see the end product! I see that Innocent Smoothies are having their *BIG KNIT* http://www.innocentdrinks.co.uk/thebigknit/ So scraps of left over wool might go towards knitting up a few of those as well. All in a good cause!
And don't forget knit-a-square too! http://www.knit-a-square.com/ I have only managed one completed square so far, with another on the needles. Can anyone help me out?!
