Handmade Monday 37: foodie and jewellery makes
It was my birthday last weekend, so lots of baking and cooking went on for a Jamie at Home party I hosted. I found a mint choc chip cake recipe on Raspberri cupcake's blog, and as that's my second favourite ice cream flavour, decided to try it. Always scary when you've got someone coming to the party who makes cakes for a business. Was pretty pleased with it, but it was meant to be mint green and after the choc bits were added, the icing went a bit beigey! It still tasted fabulous though.
I did nachos, home made sausage rolls, iced gingerbread 'cupcakes' and Nigella's trashy lime cheesecake which is my signature dessert that I know never fails. The party was great fun, I bought lots of Jamie stuff (and got some great freebies), everyone loved the food and it was great to get my friends together.
I also managed to get some crafting in this week. I saw circular rosettes in a magazine to add to vest/t-shirts customisation, but decided to add buttons to mine and a brooch back. Not bad for a first attempt. Am planning on making some simpler button & felt brooches to sell as cheaper options on my pamper evening stall in January and potentially on my facebook page too.
