Royal wedding fever!

Many of us thought he'd never ask her or if the Queen would ever agree to her being the future Queen and marry her Grandson, but, time flies and this friday our Prince William will marry the lovely Kate Middleton. I have been getting into the spirit by making 250 cupcakes, ordered by British Airways for them to celebrate with their clients, and in one of my favourite shops in Amsterdam, 'British Stores', I found a wonderful Royal Wedding tote (they have since sold out but I did manage to get one for my sister, which made me think surely they have this stuff in England??).

And if you are one of those camping in tents at Westminster (yep two days early, anyone would think the Queen was coming), then sleep well!

Only thing is now with my crackly tv, where to watch it?

Hello Spring!

Amsterdam says hello spring!

Journal de Nimes no. 7

A few weeks ago I made a delicious (if I may say so myself!) Banana and Butterscotch layer cake for Journal de Nimes. The wonderfully interesting and beautifully presented journal is sold at, and made by, Tenue de Nimes and Another Company. Head down there for your copy, only €4 and proceeds go to Japan. See inside for the recipe!
