Bake or Fake!

Hello Ladies, first things first. I would just like to say thank you to Lyn at Everyday Life for giving me this award.
The 'Lemonade' award is for "seeing blessings where they're not obvious and make lemonade instead if complaining about sour lemons"
Thank you sweetie.

And talking of lemons... This is lemon layer pudding.


This pudding is all mixed together in one bowl but then during baking, separates, leaving sponge on the top and lemon sauce on the bottom!


Pure genius! No need to make custard!
I need to find a chocolate recipe!
.
Well that was the real deal and now for a little 'fake baking'

Mince pies!
All made from fabric of course.

A little bit of sticky mince meat oozing from under the lid.

Hmmm..... can you smell them. Tee hee!

I love the little red berries, three different red beads.

It's no good, I'm going to have to make some real ones!
.
My Christmas pudding and mince pies are for sale at Karens Milkchurn Cottage Gift shop.

My favourite pudding made when my daughter comes as she loves it too - it's clever isn't it the way it separates? Love those non-fattening mince pies - so realistic and the pud. You are clever!

You are so clever Fiona - those mince pies are so realistic.

A friend has given me lots of odd bits of material - some furnishing fabric, some Liberty tana lawn - I have no use for them - would you like them? If so, send me an e mail and let me know if there is an afternoon next week when I could mosey over and bring them. They are not desperately exciting patterns, but the lawn is such a beautiful material I am sure you could find a use for it.

Oh that lemon pudding looks just fabulous and how clever it is. Those mince pies are amazing. I can't imagine how you do it, you're so clever.

Hi Marmaladerose!
Just read about the yummy lemon pudding which I shall try out as soon as I can! I have a similar recipe for a chocolate pudding where the sauce appears after cooking too! I don't have a blog (yet) but if you would like it you can email me.
