There are two layers of the Fauxstess Cupcake recipe from Vegan with a Vengeance, layered between that is vegan buttercream. The same buttercream is spread round 3 sides of the cake and then I dragged a fork around the three sides to make the pages. The top and spine of the book is made using Ginger's Chocolate Ganache recipe.
I had a little buttercream left over so I chucked this in too.
This should keep the ghouls happy this Halloween!!
These are "A zombie sucked out my eyeball" cakes.
(incidentally - if anyone can shed any light on the reason why my jam didn't sink I would appreciate it. I followed the ingredients EXACTLY except I used sunflower oil instead of canola because I can't buy canola or rapeseed oil anywhere). Anyhoo - they taste AMAZING!
I've had four already.
Lots and lots and lots and lots of times.
And you all know what we'll be having for dinner tomorrow too.
But never-the-less - I know how you all like pornz, so here ya go.
That's 10 quid or 16 us dollars or 17 Australian dollars.
Pretty cool huh.
I'm going to make a real effort to go every Sunday from now on.
I also bought my favourite olives ever.
That's an olive stuffed with a whole clove of garlic. Just so as you can appreciate the size of these here's another photo.
I've done it - I have made good tasty bread in my new bread machine. WooHooo!
The recipe is from Allinson Bread booklet and is as thus:
1 1/8 cups of water
2 1/4 Tablespoons Sugar
1 1/4 teaspoons Salt
2 1/2 Tablespoons Sunflower Oil
3 cups strong white bread flour
1 1/4 teaspoons Allinson Easybake Yeast
Put everything in the bread machine in the order given and set on "Basic".
How easy peasy is that. I had some for my lunch spread with Tartex - it is super delicious. This has given my confidence a real boost and I can't wait to go to the supermarket and get some special ingredients and start making some fancy bread.
She was left on a doorstep when she was about 4 weeks old. She was like a sock filled with pebbles when my friend found her and bought her round to me.
This is Chomsky when he was a baby. He's the other baby of Boo,
Dr Blowfin's brother
HURRAH! I am home.
There's no place like home.
And what could be more welcoming than a bowl of freshly made Tomato Soup and home made Garlic Bread?
Not a lot really.
Feast your eyes
In true heathen style I didn't write down what I did but it's SO easy you can't go wrong.
Sorry totally crappy photo. It was night, I was hungry.
Can we all pretend that this was posted yesterday?
Blog Action Day is a day set aside by bloggers around the world to discuss something that effects all of us - this year the subject is climate change.
I actually find it quite ironic that this years topic will generate millions of people to power on their computers and laptops and consume energy for a topic they are trying to promote using less energy on!
Bearing this in my mind I thought it would be a good idea to share a few tips on how to use less energy with our computers
4.Turn off peripherals such as printers, scanners and speakers when not in use.
Todays MoFo shall be dedicated to the king of the spuds.
I'm not talking about King Edwards either, oh no.
There is one potato that surpasses King Edwards.
This is the don, the head honcho, heck - this is THE DADDY.
What am I talking about?
People - I give you The Jersey Royal New Potato.
There is one thing that epitomises an English summer for me and that is this regal potato. Only in the shops from April until June they are gorged on by UK'ers, who receive 90% of Jerseys crop, year after year.
Oh how I weep for the rest of the world.
And I know what you're all thinking. This MoFo'er has gawn mad.
I'm right aren't I!
Well - ha ha. Feast your eyes on my score today.
seriously - name another vegetable that has a Limited Edition!
Oh and they're packed full of fibre and vitamin C too.
All hail the mighty potato
We are not worthy
Seriously, vegans of the world; pair yourself up for a package swap with a UK'er around May/June next year and hint massively, heck - cut out the hinting - DEMAND your swap buddy sends you some of these bad boys.
smash 'em up
Serve and enjoy!
And what's a Sunday without a Sunday roast?
Carrots, broad beans,runner beans, potatoes, peas, stuffing and onion gravy.Deeeee-liscious.
The chocolate cake could have done with a shed load more chocolate - it just tasted of banana really, but the carrot cake was freaking AMAZING!
And my awesome mum even ordered vegan food for her too. She had vegetable samosas and spicey potato cakes which were both super delicious and scarfed down before the camera was thought of. I've got my priorities right at least.
Now my mums spice cupboard isn't the best stocked spice cupboard in the world (OK I am spoilt I know) and rather than go out and buy individual packets of herbs and spices to make tonights dinner I thought I would just get an all in one curry powder.
And 'cos I know the blogosphere, and the universe in general, is not lacking in vegan curry recipes - I shall just get straight to the finished product.
I will still be MoFo'ing and still reading all your blogs but if I miss a day or two then you'll know it's not because I've been abducted by aliens.
I'm hoping I can find my camera software so as I can upload photos on my mums computer...fingers crossed. The good side of this is that my mum is a pro bread machine bread maker so I will most definitely be getting her to show me how it's done.
The rice noodles were placed in boiling water for 4 minutes then drained. Then I mixed some soy sauce, lime juice, green chili, sugar and peanut butter all together. I totally eyeball this, just check and adjust to your preference.
