Get ahead for Christmas by making your Christmas cake on "Stir up Sunday". It's the last Sunday before Advent and is the traditional start of the Christmas season celebrations. This year it falls on November 23rd.
What a wonderful night full of gruesome treats and ghoulish fun. We thought you might like to see how we have been finishing off some of our toffee apples this year for one particular party.
It doesn't seem that long ago that I was running to the post box with a few slices of cake in my hand, the last five years have flown by. Thank you so much for your support and encouragement, it really does mean a lot to us. I remember the first time I went on Twitter and thought "what's this all about then?" To the good friends I met there, who showed me the way such as @coffeecurls @takepath42 and @colinshelbourn you are fabulous. I think @e_nation #watercoolermoment was the best start any business could have for an introduction to social media.
The temperatures in California are always warmer than here in the UK, but this year even northern California and the San Francisco Bay area has seen amazingly high temperatures of over 30 degrees Centigrade this late in the year in October and that follows a hot dry summer and the dry spring before. So how does that affect the cost of your baking in the UK? Well from the crops we buy from there of course!
A Cadbury fudge was my treat once an week from the corner shop (when they still existed) on a Friday walking home from school with my mum and siblings. So when a box from totally fudged was dropped off from our postie on a Friday of all days I was quite excited.
Where did September go? I can't believe it's October already, it'll soon be...! However, we know how many of you like to have a go at making your own Christmas fruit cake. So we thought you may like some tips and tricks to help give yours the extra wow factor this year.
