Pete the Cat Cake

Ok, so it seems like my posts are once a year right now. I guess I just haven’t been making anything particularly exciting these days, partially due to a lack of time, and part due to my ongoing wrist problems – Bah! Anyway, I thought I would share this wonderfully easy and tasty cake recipe, […]

Eric Carle, for those with limited artistic skill.

(I am just going to gloss over the long blogging absence, I have been making things, but they haven’t been exciting things and I had kind of lost my mojo) We all know I like to make things, but I don’t class myself as being particularly artistically skilled, and was way out of practice at […]

Seedy Rolls

Like I have always done throughout my academic life (except the final year of my degree where I was totally on top of things), I have been getting behind on my studies. Cue playing catch up over the past few weeks, trying to make sure all my rotation exams and evaluations etc. are done before […]
