Have you ever tried a bee sting? They are one of my favourite desserts and that one^^ Is the second cake I made for my 30th.
I love making my birthday cake, I make cakes for so many people and getting to make mine is exciting. I can experiment and make crazy things, one year I made lime cupcakes with vegetable carbon so they were black. And sometimes I am feeling nostalgic and make something I love, like this bee sting.
When I was 17 I worked in a bakery, which I loved, and one of the speciality’s was bee sting. Buttery brioche and smooth, thick custard topped with crunchy almonds and honey, what’s not to love. Working in that bakery remains one of my favourite jobs,the early starts, surrounded by incredible food, fresh donuts, trays and trays of slices, fresh baked pies and sausage rolls. It was like heaven. What has your favourite job been? Is it your current job?
I am officially in my thirties! Two days in and I am loving it!! Marc organised dinner Saturday night with friends and family, it was absolutely amazing. We had such a fun night, and the food. Oh my the food, was sensational. There was sweet potato falafels, kataifi pastry filled with middle eastern cheese and spicy lamb boureks for entree, all of them were bursting with flavour. Then the mains came out… I didn’t think it could get better, then it did. with garlic chicken kebabs, Moroccan spiced calamari, lamb pizza with rocket, haloumi and eggplant pizza and beetroot salad. So much food and we ate it all, everyone loved it!
This weekend is going to be packed. My Mum will be here tomorrow night, I am so excited to see her! We have dinner for my birthday with friends and family Saturday night. On Sunday I am taking Mum to chocolate high tea for an early Mother’s Day celebration as I won’t see her on Mother’s Day. Also Marc’s Dad gets in on sunday. CRAZY!
Who’s excited for a 4 day weekend? Me, I am! I am so looking forward to it!!! The only plans we have are some house work and dinner with friends, which means heaps of time for cooking and even more time to relax! Work has been super crazy the last 2 months so I am looking forward to a mini break.
What are your plans? I really want to know, are you doing something fun? Are you going away? Going to the beach?
