September 2012 reveal

September reveal!

This month I sent a parcel to Lizzie near Cambridge and received a lovely selection of goodies from Tracey in Twickenham.  I knew that Tracey was a keen baker having checked her out online (no, I wasn't stalking) and the other family members - Harry in particular were suitably excited to receive our treats.
His favourites and the items which caused most excitement were "Percy Pig" sweets and three beautiful cake pops, which Tracey had made, red velvet cake coated in white chocolate and sprinkles.  Harry was delighted with his extra red tongue afterwards and was horrified to be forced to share the sweets with his dad but as Tracey had thoughtfully put three cake pops in, we had one each to sample!

There were also savouries in the parcel which delighted me as I have the least sweet tooth of the family.  To spice up my snack cupboard there were wasabi peas which were wonderful, I grow wasabi and thoroughly enjoy its effects, that almost a sneeze sensation.

There was also pumpkin seed and sesame seed flatbreads, lemon shortbread. a jar of homemade chilli jam (yum) and some cake cases for me to do some baking with Harry plus a kit of spices and instructions to make bombay potatoes which were very tasty but we forgot to take a photo!

Thanks Tracey, your first parcel was very enjoyable and I look forward to following your exploits.  xxxx
