I’m Guest Posting over at Kait Nolan’s ROW80 Blog
Come and join me as I discuss:
There’s something about taking risks that instantly makes us apprehensive, it’s like the wave of nausea that hits you before you decide to take the plunge and jump off a plane on a crazy whim of bravado or you drop everything and go to explore the world –well that may be an ostentatious example; but you get the point.
This week and a half has been meshed with me being productive as well as, well, not so much… I will analyse the whys and why not’s in Wednesdays check-in (a creative insight from Paul Gaugain will be shared). In the meantime please have a peep at my progress-to-date-page and let me know how I’m fairing.
For those who like competitions check this out: Cold Open Comp & Turner’s Triptych Tapestries (that’s for the flash fiction lovers within you; hope you take part). I’ll now get back to some writing… See you all on Wednesday.

My passion for baking began years ago, during secondary school, when I found out my aunt baked exceedingly good cakes (and not the Mr Kipling’s variety)! Fresh cream cake with fresh fruit –yes I know –yummmmm! However, I did not take this up fully until the last ten years of my life and I only stuck with my aunts trusted recipe. Example of one successful baking session can be seen as above:
It took me a good few tries to perfect this (there were times when I only used 15gr of flour as opposed to 150gr! I was young; I had written the ingredients incorrectly; I could not understand why the cake would rise beautifully in the oven then fall flat when it came out and on top of that, why it resembled a biscuit rather than a cake! I was not impressed –an understatement of my thoughts at the time); the end results finally paid off and it was a success with all my friends and family and was devoured instantly; see below after a party of five us had a cake feast!
