I’ve been naughty, very naughty indeed! I’ve neglected my poor Sweet Melissa cook book and more importantly, I’ve neglected my dear Sweet Melissa Sunday ladies. *Hangs head in shame* I do apologise my sweets, how can I ever make it up to you? I know, how about a double header, will that make you smile? I thought so 😉
Now that’s out of the way let me tell you why I’ve been such a lazy bones. Firstly, and most importantly, I’ve been a poorly Katiecakes. Sore throat developed into a cold, cold developed into a chesty cough, chesty cough developed into a chest infection, you know how it goes. So I’ve been holed up in my teeny little house going stir crazy. My passion for all things kitchen went out of the window and I sat on the sofa eating nothing but take away’s for a week and a half. Poor me! But, I’m all better now thanks to a fist full of antibiotics every day and I’m itching to get back into the kitchen.
Firstly, I’d like to say sorry specifically to Rosy of Rosy Lips and Lavender. I feel dreadful for missing your pick last week. I did bake along, I just never got round to posting those delicious red velvet morsels of nomminess! Well, I say delicious, I never actually got to eat one. I baked last weeks choice for an Alice in Wonderland themed event for Pet Lamb and decorated them like wee toadstools. Boy were they a hit! So thumbs up to Rosy, the punters couldn’t get enough 😀
Now, for this weeks choice Spike of Spike Bakes picked the perfect desert to follow absolutely any Valentines feast, easy chocolate mousse. I mean, who doesn’t like chocolate mousse? And talk about easy, I was overjoyed with how simply the recipe came together, especially as I’m currently in the process of making a beef wellington and didn’t really have the time for an overly complex desert. Hurrah for ten minute mousse!
Don’t forget to have a peek at my fellow SMS girls! Now, I’m back off to see to my wellington. Happy Valentines my lovelies!
