I was just wondering if anyone here likes to do fancy cooking/baking :D I personally love making cakes, desserts, and homemade bread. Anyone else share this hobby? I'll post pics of some of my forays in to the sweeter side of baking, if anyone is interested. No bread pics though :rolleyes:

Howdy Leah, long time no speak...

I like to cook, but can't do pastries - my nan used to say my hands were too warm for it :D

My Mum makes great homemade bread, and her Chocolate Beetroot cake is to die for :thumbup:

And finally whipped dark chocolate truffles...so this makes sense, it was a dog themed cake and these were supposed to be dog food :p

wow, they look awesome, really really tasty. one thing that puts me off cakes is the dryness of some of the shop ones, i often have to have a good amount of cream or an alternative to make it less dry.

I knew someone who was just like that. Pasties are on my list of things to do. I'd imagine they're not hard to do, are they?

OMG, Leah, they all look sooooo nice... are you married btw? What's that, no? Well if you ever need a warm set of hands, I'm yer man :lol:

lmao...Sorry, you're 4 months late :D

pasties are fairly easy, nice to make with younger people as well, as they enjoy getting their hands messy!

:lol: I didn't even notice that! Now if I could just do that in a fish tank.

Cake party? Eh, sure...not a chance :D If I ever go to one of these meetings, I'll have to bring a cake.
