Birthday Blog 2014

Firstly wishing all the father’s in the world a Happy Father’s Day and secondly I am also celebrating my birthday.

I usually use this blog to post fashion, news and other fun items from Second Life, but today I thought I would dedicate the majority of this blog to my RL hobby of baking.

I keep saying this, however it is true in that I am not in SL a great at the moment, however I have been busy getting back into one of my favourite hobbies, baking and cake decorating.

After returning from holiday in early May and whisking up a quick chocolate fudge cake for my Godson’s birthday, I then did not bake anything for about two weeks.  After that I was itching to try to make a few things I remember making at school, which was a long time ago, so I started with rosemary focaccia, which turned out better than I had expected.  It was so light and tasted yummy.

After that I saw some bananas in my fruit bowl, the skin getting quite a few brown spots, so instead of throwing them away, I decided to make some banana bread.  I took some to work and some to dressmaking class for everyone to sample.  I think they liked it, as there was none left at the end of the day.

I also received an order from a lady at work for some cupcakes for her friend’s baby shower.  The lemon cupcakes were decorated with baby bottles and the vanilla cupcakes decorated with little baby booties.  They were such fun to make.

I always enjoy baking items with a twist and also using my favourite ingredients.  Lavender is one of my favourite flowers, I just love the smell of lavender.  I found a place online that sells culinary lavender.  They also sell culinary lavender essence and lavender sugar.  With my order they sent me with a leaflet with a few recipes containing lavender, so I baked a batch of lavender shortbread.  The smell from the oven as they were cooking was divine and they were delicious to taste as well.

Last week I whisked up a batch of chocolate cupcakes with chocolate butter-cream and decorated with rice paper pictures of Weimaraner puppies (above).  My friend Emma ordered these for her husband who celebrated his birthday last week.  They advised me that they enjoyed them very much and her husband has since asked me when I will be making some more, inviting me to join them one day for Pimms and cake.  I will definitely visit soon 🙂

And finally I couldn’t resist setting up a quick photo of my SL avatar in her virtual kitchen looking as if she has been busy baking too.  I have my friend Rico Mar to thank for the inspiration, after visiting his tea house a few weeks ago and seeing all the delectable cakes, pastries, desserts and sweets, which some of you will have seen on a very long table in his tea house.  Thank you Rico 🙂

Well that is it for this post, I hope you have al enjoyed it.  I do intend to create my own RL blog soon, which will feature more RL baking delights, together with some helpful hints and tips.  Until next time …
