Following my holiday in Suffolk (more about my holiday knitting soon!) the Fenton Knitting Group will be knitting tonight at the barn as usual. Courtesy of the lovely Mary Berry we will be enjoying a ‘weekend fruit cake’ and this on a Tuesday! Shocking!
Today’s handmadebysoo cake for the Fenton Knitting Group members to enjoy is my take on Gretel Beer’s apple slices. Very continental, but without Gretel’s sultanas as one of our ladies doesn’t eat dried fruit. A sneaky taster as they came out of the oven reveals however that they are still delicious!
As Twelfth Night falls on a Tuesday this year and coincides with the first meeting of the Fenton Knitting Group in 2016 we shall be knitting tonight by the Christmas tree. Time to reflect, perhaps, on all the lovely family time we have enjoyed this holiday and to start planning all those crafty projects we have resolved to complete in the new year.
The cake this evening is by way of a celebration too. It was Soo’s birthday yesterday (yes, 27 AGAIN!!!) and to mark the occasion she will be sharing her birthday cake. The recipe is courtesy of Mary Berry. The cake smells delicious and promises to taste just as good. Enjoy!
