Regular readers will know that I love to use edible flowers in salads, desserts and cakes. This morning a blogger friend, Arkenaten, posted one of the prettiest cakes I have ever seen, made by his daughter, Emily and with their permission, I show it to you here. What a beautiful creation with a rich abundance of colour and shapes! I’m not sure I would be able to cut into it – it’s a piece of art!
We’ve been listening to the local farmer harvesting over the last couple of days and loving the smell of the freshly mown hay. By the end of today, it is all in bales and the sheep are already enjoying it!
For our picnic tomorrow evening at The Minack Theatre prior to the performance, I have made some Rustic Mini pies, chicken and leek. Most of them will be frozen away for later!
