I’m poorly, again. I know, shock, horror and more shock. I swear my immune system is on existent.
On Thursday night I had a bit of a tickely throat during Clubbercise class, and then yesterday morning I woke with a full on cold. This morning I had somewhat of a migraine to accompany it, and my eye lids were very swollen and tender.
Anyway, the afternoon as arrived and Troy has gone out to football. I feel slightly better in the sense that I can actually see now, so I’ve dragged my bum off the sofa and decided to do some baking with Thea. I know, what am I thinking, right?!
It actually wasn’t that bad. I had bought one of those pre-made packets. It was from B&M and cost 99p, so I wasn’t holding high hopes, but for a first attempt at baking, that didn’t really matter.
Obviously I had to mix it all together, but she enjoyed having a go at mixing herself. However, she did take the spoon out and try and waft it everywhere so I quickly removed it! (Only because it had raw egg on it). That was it as far as the cake went. They went into the oven. It said 12-15 minutes but as suspected I had to leave them in for 20.
So they looked a little better than I expected for a 99p packet. You’re not going to get the rise as you would with home baking as there isn’t enough mixture for a start, and once she gets used to baking a bit more, we’ll make some scratch.
While they were cooling I did quickly mix the icing myself as she was busy dancing to Tree Fu Tom.
I bought the cakes and mixture into the living room and with my help she had a go at decorating!
I hope Troy is looking forward to dinner tonight!
