..well, sort of. Anyone who knows me would know I don’t drink hot drinks. I have always loved the smell of coffee, but hated the taste. However! Today, while making a 87th birthday cake of chocolate cake with coffee buttercream, I tried the buttercream to see how strong it was, and I liked it!! SHOCK!
Quite happy with this revelation to be honest. Probably won’t like drinking coffee still, but this is a step forward.
I thought I’d take a quick picture of the cake, as I was about to run out of the door to go to an appointment.

Not the best photo I’ve taken, but gives an idea 🙂
So after finishing this cake for the birthday boy, I had a meeting with a local bakery owner about providing celebration cakes and every so often some yummy cakes and confectionary. Which sounds brilliant to me! He has a lovely little shop – honest prices, and honest, simple food. Sarnies, salads, baked goods, all homemade…and a lovely man. For any Eastbourne based people, this is ‘Carlisle Bakery & Gifts’ in Carlisle Road.
I’ve got a 40th birthday topsy turvy cake due for friday, so I’m going to start on that tomorrow. But for now…a little rest again.
Night all x
