It was Australia Day here yesterday and I had the pleasure of spending it with one of my best friends. We made sausage rolls and then with the leftover pastry we got thinking and decided we would make dessert! Firstly, we thought apple and cinnamon… then I discovered the jar of Nutella in the cupboard… and then the rapsberries in the freezer. Yum. They are super easy to make, no measurements required , and you could quite possibly put whatever you want in these ‘parcels’. Best idea ever!
So excited to be beginning my baking blog. I love to bake and it makes me so happy to be able to share my love with other people. Hopefully I will be baking ALOT more, now I have an excuse!! (must bake for my blog!!) I often adapt recipes I have tried before, and make them my own- wherever I can I will credit where I found/tried something yummy, because most is not my own ideas. I enjoy experimenting so I hope in the future I can begin to make my own recipes!!
Sweetspice Delights began as I ventured out into my local town and had a market stall, which I had planned for during school in ‘Research Project’. It is a subject in Australian schools that requires senior students to think of an idea and develop it, showing all the planning and thought processes along the way, and aim to make a finished product/concept. Mine was ‘how to run a market stall’. The name came from making gingerbread men (sweet and spice) for the stall, and I thought it had a good sound to it. Ha. The logo I designed myself, this was also part of my research project subject.
I am not currently doing stalls, too much effort and no profit, and as much as I don’t mind no profit, it is hard work! But it was a really good experience. I do some outside orders for people who know about my baking, but most is just for family and friends, no charge of course because I love them (naww).
Okay, I have run out of things to say, and I feel silly posting to no-one just yet, but hopefully people will come across me and have a look and say hi and find a new recipe to share with their family and friends, or keep it to themselves!!
Hope to post some more soon. Off to eat a banana cupcake!!
I decided I would make a cake today. I came home from a lovely time away for the night with friends and I was in a good mood. Some of our bananas were brown and ripe, perfect for banana cake, and we also had leftover cream cheese that needed using, so voila! lemon icing it was! Haven’t done cream cheese icing for so long, so it was a nice change from the usual chocolate (which is also delicious!). Plus I had new muffin cases I had in the pantry, waiting to be used (yay!!) 🙂
Here’s how to make them…
