I baked a cake using a new recipe today and it turned out very well indeed. It was a Birthday cake for a dear friend who will be 99 in a couple of weeks but we will be away on the date so we had a mini party this afternoon – Cornish cream tea followed by Chocolate, Date and Coffee cake, decorated with (edible) Primroses from our garden.
One of their three cats was curled up happily in a basket.
Nicky showed us around her potting studio and I photographed just one of her stunning pots.
The border outside was a riot of colours, yellow and purple in profusion.
PS. For those who read about my beautiful Chappelle plate a couple of days ago, I found the potters! I emailed and was truly delighted to get the following in reply.
“Thank you Sally. It’s a tray I personally did many years ago. I’m happy you are still enjoying it.
We closed Chappelle Gallery Jan 15th after 17 years. I was needing a break and we were wanting to do some things before we couldn’t.
