We had a good taste of how the summer will pan out in Howe Street - customers in residence from 11am - 5.30pm without a break; very good!
Stu usually gets his baking out the way first thing, but today a cake popped out the oven mid afternoon as the ginger cake with lemony, gingery butter icing quickly vanished. Tomorrow its back to work on the scones, whole orange cake, and perhaps a cherry one too....
I had it in mind to start a painting today that has popped into my head and was itching to get started, but a quick pencil sketch on board at 5 o'clock was the best I managed. No complaints - we are thinking Festival now... bring it on!!
In the midst of Cakefest, I am glad to report that we also had a good deal of interest in the art on show also, and promises of return visits with framing jobs. It's going to be a busy summer!
