Cake for a friend

Blue and cream, they go together as well as blueberries and soft cheese icing. I made this hearty tea time stomach bulger for a beautiful travelling lady called Jess Smith. She and her man Davie were great hosts, and made me feel really relaxed and welcome.
I've suddenly realised, quite late actually that fruit and baking are my favourite things to create in le kitchen and this area is teeming with hedgerow pickings in the autumn. This could become quite an addictive past-time...

Baking and Making

Cake Fridays at uni require a willing classmate to donate a yummy cake for us all to gorge on, this week was my call. I went for a fresh recipe-a bit of a gamble- but it all turned out well, thank goodness. There's a lot of pressure with 12 hungry faces awaiting the first piece!

It's a cherry cake, as you may have guessed, with a crumble like top, I love it when baking goes well! As does my stomach.

Tis windy up north

Recent example of some illustrations I'm using for my fourth year work. I really enjoy drawing, in fact I realy really enjoy doodling when it goes well. I've been trying to draw this image for weeks and all of a sudden I managed, and no red wine involved!
