Easter weekend

My Easter weekend looked a little something like this.

*New framed chalkboard.  *Easter cupcakes decorated by my beautiful Niece Honey.  I let her have a go at using a piping bag for the first time, not bad for a 4 year old :).  *Table decorated for breakfast at my Brother and Sister In Laws.  *Lindt bunnies.  *Gorgeous flowers from my Mum and Dad. *  My Easter card from Honey.  *My Sister dressed up as the Easter Bunny and delivered Easter eggs in my Brother and Sister In Laws garden.  Honey couldnt believe that the real Easter Bunny had been in her garden and she had actually seen him.

*My lovely Auntie Doreen has been over to visit from Australia.  I hate having to say goodbye to her, even if it is only until September.  *We took Honey to see Disney on ice, we had rink side seats and the show was amazing.  *My Brothers Birthday cake.  *Family meal at the 50s American Diner, the food here is amazing and the staff are super nice  The names of the burgers always make me smile, you can have an Elivs Presley, a Bobby Darin or a James Dean.  *My birthday cake.  *Lovely Birthday presents, personalised necklace and Everything Alice book  *Snow, Wellies, Snow angels and Snowman.

Macaron school

Last weekend I went to a macaron class at the Sherwood Cookery School.  This was a Christmas gift from my Brother and Sister In Law and I was really excited about it, I had had a go at making these before but  I couldn’t quite get them right.

To begin with our tutor ran through a demonstration of how to make macarons.  We were then let loose on making our own!  Our tutor was there to offer a helping hand or advice if we needed it.


I made these gorgeous pink macarons with strawberry buttercream.

The Sherwood Cookery School offer a huge range of classes and I would definitely go back again.  The macaron class was really well run and I really enjoyed  myself.  The macarons were pretty scrumptious too.
