I got dressed up for the wedding today, in one of my lovely pinnies. I think that today must be the longest time I have spent in a pinny. I seem to have spent most of the day doing some sort of cooking. Before the wedding started I had poached a chicken (ready for the visit from my brother and niece and nephew tomorrow) and then the children had helped me make a chocolate sponge ready for the wedding celebrations. After ironing through the ceremony (I couldn't just sit and watch it!) I prepared food for the BBQ, then it was making soup and making the filling for the leek and chicken pie ready for tomorrow. Finally I assembled a very messy chocolate cake with a 6 year old and a 2 year old. You can probably imagine their faces!!!!
The cake looks messy because it is messy. Not a cake to be eaten in front of someone you want to impress, but fabulous. I will post the recipe some time in the near future.
I hadn't planned to do anything different today, but as the week went on the Fairy got more and more excited, said that she want to watch the wedding and have a party. I am glad that she wanted to, I didn't feel the need to work during the day which is refreshing, and now we have the remainder of a yummy chocolate cake to share with our visitors tomorrow!
N.B The cake is the same one the girls in my photo shoot assembled in March... I have been dying to make it since!!
