On the hunt for a clear 3 tier cake stand

I am preparing for my 50th birthday party ;-)

I need a cake stand to display some cupcakes - I saw them in Cheap As Chips a while back ...... I know, I hear you saying 'you should have got them then!'  I know, I know ..... ;-)

I have already tried the two CAC's that are near me, but they have none.  I am off to TTP & spotlight tomorrow - Any other suggestions would be great !

Updating the Breadmaker Story

We had all sorts of problems getting a satisfactory loaf with the Breville - then it started beeping continuously at me, so I returned it and got a Sunbeam Bakehouse.

The very first loaf was a score of 9 out of 10!  Our second loaf was 10 out of 10!
I really like this machine.  It makes a much nicer loaf - more of an upright loaf and is so much easier to cut.

On Friday for luch, I made myself a Grilled Cheese & Tomato Toasted Doorstop.  For those that may not know, a Doorstop is a really thick slice of bread.  It looked so yummy, I didn' even stop to take a photo ;-)

Challenge #67 is up and running

The Admin Team at have set the challenge for this fortnight!

Cook's Club Challenge 67

The Pumpkin, Lamb & Feta Pasta bake looks good ;-)

Spring has Sprung

It was a lovely sight today - the blossoms seemed to all pop up overnight (not quite, but you know what I mean LOL)

Pity about the white balance being wrong !!! 
that's what I get for not checking the camera before taking shots!
