This week the weather has been rather wet and gloomy at Betty's Cottage and so we decided to cheer ourselves up with a bit of baking. Lolly and Buncle were united in thinking that Cherry Topped Chocolate Fairy Cakes would provide the fairy glow we all needed now that the clocks have gone back and in a fairy trice the cake mixture was being spooned into the paper cases ( fairies don't hang about when they sniff some sugar in the air . )
asked her to prepare the tin for the second batch.
Just as I was congratulating myself on what an uneventful day we had and how well trained my fairies were turning out , I bit into the last cake to find a mouthful of duster !! Yes, the very duster that Lolly had been using to dust on the icing sugar - it had obviously fallen into the second batch of mixture and she hadn't noticed it was missing...
and safely back in her apron pocket.
I am just relieved that the Cocoa fairy went away with a duster free cake or we may have had our license to bake True Fairy Cakes taken away from us !
HAPPY FAIRY SPOTTING , love from,
