A Jubilee Baked Item

Sonata:

Having wrestled for the last few days with the chemistry , physics and alchemy involved in making a cake , I've finally managed to produce a baked item . So yesterday it was finally time to make it look festive and Jubilee-ish .

After accepting that my patisserie skills were only going to run to sandwiching it with cream and a rather superior raspberry jam , I decided to continue in the same understated fashion .

Stash was raided for red and white polka dots and some flowers were whipped up from one of those Hawaian leis from a party shop ..... and TAH Dah !!




Smitten Kitchen's Everyday Chocolate Loaf Cake has become our Diamond Jubilee Cake .


Rattling On ( see our sidebar ) will be providing a link everyone who's joining in as well as producing something very stylish and delicious herself .


SmitoniusAndSonata hope you all have a wonderful weekend , wherever you are . Meanwhile I'm going to make some reviving soup and maybe a "cup cake" or two .

Perfect! And your polka dot crockery is a focus for my envy right now. Thank you so much for joining in. I hope your husband hasn't gone up a waist size...

Oh, well done. I was a bit half hearted about red white and blue here, though did manage to wear a blue dress and red tights. And I've eaten that everyday chocolate cake - it is very good, isn't it.

Sorry about the break in this week.
