Wow... Since noon I have been baking, because of several birthdays in the family and the aftermath of the recent New Year celebrations.
A good friend gave us a bunch of the sweetest, fattest, and thinnest-skinned bananas, they were so good and ripe, I made three batches of Cordon Rose Banana Cake from the Cake Bible - it was fun mixing up the batter - 24 cupcakes and a 2-layer 8 inch round cake.
Next, I used finely grated carrot pulp from the fruit juicer - Mummy loves raw carrot juice like anything. I like smoothies - banana blueberry, mandarin orange apple, and I like them with yogurt. From the bread bible, the Carrot Bread (Cake) is delicious, tasty, and moist. It's very dense and cinnamony, with plenty of good flavor, plus it was quick to whip up when the banana cakes were baking.

3) When the egg/honey mixture is cool, beat in 150g of butter.
The ratio is
The frosting is smooth, creamy, and not too sweet at all.
On a different note, I have finished my third coptic binding book. Learn about bookbinding here. It's a pretty, useful, craft that can be combined with scrapbooking, calligraphy, embroidery, anything!
I also plant to make a Kapp - Tutorial Here. They are so pretty! I want to add some to my collection.
