Each Friday, I would like to share a word of the week with you. Something that summarises what I’ve been up to, how I’ve felt and how life is generally going. I’d love if you’d share one in the comments. It can be so therapeutic to reflect on what’s been happening, good or bad!
This week I have chosen the word cake
I’ve been thinking a lot about cake…and not just in the “oh I really fancy eating a lot of cake right now” sort of way I usually do.
A couple of weeks I go I told you that I was in the process of booking the last couple of things for my wedding next year. Well, my fiance and I have been looking at our options for our wedding cake. It’s no secret that they can be expensive. We’re looking to find an affordable alternative.
We had our first go at making a Madeira cake at home and it tasted amazing. The only small issue, it took almost four hours to bake! Back to the drawing board as that just seems like a bit too much work. Especially the day before the wedding. We’re thinking of trying a simple vanilla sponge next time. If you have any thoughts or advice, please do share!
Of course, if you are interested in baking you’ll know my other reason for choosing cake as my word of the week. The Great British Bake Off is back! I’m so excited, not only because I love the show but because it signifies the beginning of autumn and winter for me and that makes me really happy.
Unfortunately, I’m only an OK baker. I’m the typical impatient person that would probably make many a good cake if only I could wait long enough before I open the door. I’m going to take some inspiration from the bake off and try one or two simple things to try and build my confidence up. Then I’ll eat far too much cake at once, accompanied by a big cup of tea!
So there it is, my word of the week and a summary of the past seven days.
