I think everyone has a cake they can call their speciality. Mine are chocolate chip muffins with melted chocolate on top. I have been making these for years, but to add a little twist I put within the mixture dark chocolate and white chocolate chips, half a Creme Egg in some cupcakes and half a Ferraro Roche in the rest.
Winter is well and truly here, it feels like it’s been a long old slog this week, with train strikes, snow (well sleet, not enough to call a snow day!) and to top it all off I have a cold. With the freezing weather and the coughs and colds starting to work their way through the office, it’s easy to get a bit down. I for one don’t want to get the January blues, so I have put together a list of things I do to cheer myself up during the winter.
First bank holiday of the year, what better way to spend it than a walk down the beach in the winter sun. I have recently got an Olympus Pen, so it was a great opportunity to try it out. These where my favourite shots.
