Today's happy is not a garden one, it's a phew, thank goodness one. Taken yesterday and I know the edges are ragged but butter icing covers a multitude of ragged edges, not to mention making them look so much higher and substantial! I'm just thankful they didn't flop.
I'll try and remember to take a photo once I've iced them.
Good morning, one and all. It's a dull start to the day today and Beeb seems to think it's going to stay that way with some sunny intervals. A bit like yesterday, in fact. It's still warm though and looks to be continuing warm for some days to come.
As you can see above, I made my cakes and they both came out fine. I've also mixed up the icing and it's ready to meet its cake although that won't be until after Slimming World.
I had to get some more icing sugar, annoyingly, and I met Faith outside Morrisons. She said no need to bring the cakes early, just bring them when I show up so that's what I will do. It makes the morning a lot simpler.
The freebie groove class was fin. I like the new routines - she's taken out a couple of things I didn't really like (not that I said anything) and I felt I'd had a good workout by the end.
Later on, Lindsey sent a message round to all her groups that she's 'negotiated' a fun and fitness long weekend at Potters Five Lakes at the end of April/beginning of May. Guess who is top of the 'I'm going' list. So that's one holiday/short break sorted for next year.
Today is simple. Slimming World, cake icing and a Macmillan get together. It should be really pleasant and I'm very much looking forward to it.
Have a really good day, everyone, and take care. xx
