Wonderful week off. Now it’s back to it.

Well, that week flew! No baking for me apart from a dozen individual sticky toffee puddings made at my gorgeous nephew’s insistence. This was going to be a quiet week to come back to but the orders are rolling in already. Have to say I’m ready to get stuck in. There are a couple of […]
