Time for Cake and Coffee with a friend

I had a wonderful time catching up with my friend, Kathy, on Friday.  She is between jobs at the moment so we took the opportunity to catch up for cake and coffee.

I made some cupcakes and iced them with butter cream icing ............ mmmmm

A domestic day today - washing, ironing & baking

I had quite a domesticated day today - washing, ironing and a bit of baking.

I had intended to make up some Cornish Pasties for my CCC - English cuisine, but I wasn't very organised with my vegetables  ;-)

So, I went with baking up some individual pies.  I have never had much success with the gravy when making pies, but thought I would try an experiment.  I mixed up a 50/50 mix of Gravox instant pepper & traditional gravy, with just a touch of BBQ sauce added.

Yummy goodness of flaky pastry.

The Bake Club Challenge for May was to bake a pie - I know I am a bit late, but you can't rush these things ;-)
