Once bitten forever smitten - Thanksgiving

Today is the 4th Thursday in November so for Americans its Thanksgiving Day - Truely in previous years I haven't really got the hang of this holiday as it seemed to me just Christmas dinner come early.  But due to being laid up and watching a lot of daytime t.v. thanks to Food Network the penny has dropped....the reason why you take a day to have a special dinner with those you love is becasue you are giving thanks for knowing them and what what they bring to your life (note no presents!) So as my one and only son came back from University for a flying visit (23 hours station pick up to drop off) I made him a Stars and Stripes flag to take back to share whith his friends...its not for nothing he is already known as Cake Boy.

The stars needed to be firmer royal icing but in order to get that train I had to make do...still its a representation given and taken with thanks.
Flag cakes are always a great gift idea - particularly for men, patriotic, their team colours or logo, the racing chequered flag, their favouite country, the list is endless, but also in this size 8 x 5 inches they are very postable in a protective box and will stay fresh for 3 days after receipt!

I have just discovered #SmallBizSat on twitter - like most great ideas it's really simple. On Saturday 27th November you buy products or services from small businesses -Brilliant - it will keep high streets vibrant and its fun to shop local. I am supporting this in a big way by offerring something new - Family size sponge cakes for one day only including the tasting day favouite Courgette Cake plus favouites: Vanilla Victoria, Lemon Ice and Chocolate Caramel
All cakes will be baked on Friday 26th and will be perfect for eating at Sunday tea - if you can wait that long. Family sponge cakes serve 8 and for #SmallBizSat only will be £5
Or if you are feeling especially decadant why not treat yourself to a 6 box of Red Velvets (Cream cheese frosted and decorated with a fondant rose) SmallBiz Sat - special price £10. To reserve your cakes text 07714286911 by Friday noon 26th November or email
