Other happy things are happening too. Ballet is going really well and the girls & I love our trips over to Ballarat (Ballet-rat) on Saturdays.
And some fancy leaf/sticky tape hair projects. Much better than the scissor/hair project of last year.....
And doesn't cake make a girl feel good? Here is the recipe for the All Together Cake I made last week. This one is a beauty, as it the recipe for the Sugar Donut Muffins, both are super easy and fairly foolproof.
1/4 cup milk, 125 g butter, 3/4 cup caster sugar, 2 eggs, 1 tablespoon plain flour, 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla essense, 1 cup self raising flour
3 tablespoons icing sugar, 60 g butter
Preheat oven to 180 C. To make cake, combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and beat for about 6 minutes. Grease cake tin and pour in mioxture and bake for 40 minutes.
While cake is cooling make icing. Mix icing sugar and butter slowly and add hot water while stirring. Add enough water to create a thick consistency, add more sugar or butter if needed. Once cake is cooled, apply icing. I used a fork to make a pattern. Serve by itself or with cream & strawberries.Yum!!
So there you go! Let me know if you do make this cake & if you loved it too. You should really try the donut recipe too, they are super addictive.
The sun is out now and I'm feeling a bit more positive! The weather can really affect your mood can't it? I start to google sunnier places and imagine myself living somewhere else. But really these are dreams and perhaps that is all they should be. I do love living here in Daylesford and we have such a warm and supportive community, how could I ever leave?
How is your week going? Are you suffering from the winter blues too? Or maybe you are basking in the summer sun and playing outside all day long. Where ever you are, I'm sending lots of love to you, hope to see you soon xo
