...of the cheering variety. Some of my readers may know that I am having another wisdom tooth out in an hour or so in hospital. I've treated myself to some new books for when I get back later today, and of course the obvious choice is baking books because they are full of pretty pictures which can be looked at rather than actually read, which having had a fair amount of ill health and medical procedures in the last four or five years I have learnt is what I will need.
Cornflower. Finally, I should be clear that I currently have no intention of Starting a Cake Decorating Business from home, but you never know and how fascinating to read about how to do it.
I do have a couple of bakes to share with you which hopefully I'll post about tomorrow. Despite having a wonderful array of veggies, we've still needed a bit of cake (well, who doesn't when anticipating something unpleasant?!), but I'm going with the principles of simple baking and baking things from my cupboards as I did in early 2011. Probably won't last long once I read my way through these books!
