Believe it or not this is the first tea cosy I've ever made and when you consider how popular they are at the minute I don't know why I haven't.
Maybe it's because no-one in this house likes tea or maybe it's because I never realised just how quick and easy they are to make . The teapot is on loan from a neighbour if you were wondering.
This one is on it's way to Australia where a lady is going to get a surprise birthday present from her lovely partner.
You know what goes well with tea , or so I've been told anyway ..... cakes.
I said I would do a post about my new cupcake book a while ago and completely forgot . It doesn't help that I've lost nearly all the cake photos I took !!.
The ones above are Blueberry and Polenta and are most definately Hubs favourite , definately a hit at breakfast time . I'd never cooked with polenta before and I have to say it was a really nice surprise adding that little bit extra crunch.
The boys liked the banana and chocolate chip and the double choc ones ( lost photos), no surprise there then.
The ones below are my favourite , Carrot and raisin with a orange flavour soft cheese topping yum yum. These are the easiest and by far the tasties carrot cakes I have ever made or tasted.
Think the oven is calling me ...............
