Calorie-free cakes, Carnival Queens and the return of spring!



The weather has obviously been reading this blog and has decided to behave itself! Today is a glorius spring day. Here are some miniature tulips in my "seaside garden", and the blackthorn in my hedge.


As for Carnival Queens, as of July, Naomi will "retire" as Fairy Queen for the village, but Eloise has been chosen as the in-coming Senior Queen. Another Summer of Carnivals looms! (I love it really). Photos to follow shortly.


And what of the calorie free cakes I hear you ask! I made some of these for my friend in the village who runs a cake shop, she put them on display and I have started getting orders! Here is a plate of them that I made at the weekend.
