This week has been a bit of a mixed one, with lots of sewing and baking of all sorts of different things. My first job was to make a custom order cover for an iPad Mini. With free reign of choice of material, and knowing a little about the recipient, I chose a retro feeling typewriter print
Next came sewing a new batch of stock for Chouxchouxbedoo. I had seen the tutorial Wendy did on making a small coin purse keying and thought these would be good to sell in the shop. They are perfect as they dono’t take long to make and are ideal to use up scraps of fabric
I love how they are a little rough ground the edges, plus it helped me get over my zip fear!
I also made one more crayon roll in a fabric more suited to boys. I think this may be the last one of these I make for a while as I like to keep changing what I make, rather than constantly churning out the same stuff.
I also managed to get quite a bit of baking done, with a Easter theme of chocolate cake and cake pops the main feature
I hid a very small creme egg in the middle of the cake pops as a little surprise when biting into them!
I also made the creme egg brownies from the recipe that’s doing the rounds on the Internet. It was part of a bake along with the Cake and Bake show, nice to take part! I’m looking forward to going to the show next Saturday.
The last thing I attempted was a pineapple upside down cake from the Clandestine Cake Club book. I have to say, this cake was destined to fail from the start, with several things not going to plan. The last straw came however when it came to putting the pineapple rings in the tin. I hunted high and low for them, but to no avail, lost between sainsburys and home, never to be seen again. I then had to try and salvage what I had already made and turn it into something edible. I mixed together a few more ingredients and shoved it into the oven. Out came the most delicious upside down apple cake!
