Another food related post today… hmmm. I swear I do things that aren’t eating sometimes! I couldn’t not talk about the amazing day I had last Sunday with Joe Blogs and Currys so you’ll just have to deal with my gluttonous tendencies for another post.
Last weekend I was lucky enough to be invited to spend the day at the Glasgow Cook School with lots of other lovely bloggers (including Lis from Last Year’s Girl who showed me pictures of cute kittens so is now officially on my list of favourite people) baking some delicious treats and enjoying lots of tea and chat. I was working with the fab Mairi from The Weegie Kitchen and together we were supposed to make four things – scones, cupcakes, a Victoria sponge and chocolate chip muffins – however our muffins left a lot to be desired. The others were fab though, especially the scones! I’ll definitely be making them again soon.
I can’t even explain just how much I enjoyed the day, there was great food, great people and great chat which are pretty much all of my favourite things. As well as that, I actually ended up winning one of the beautiful mixers (pictured above) thanks to smearing cake batter over my face and in my hair which you can see here. Totally worth it. I can’t wait to get my bake on with it (I’ve always wanted a stand mixer so I can pretend I’m actually on GBBO) as well as the other treats that we were absolutely spoilt with on the day.
