Twinkle enjoyed taking a journey with the children ‘Sam and Sofia’ who feature throughout and their magical scooter which whisks them to a different country each month. She particularly liked the passport and that you update it with stickers to show where you have been each month. She thought that was really special.
This week on GBBO it was Tudor week. The contestants were asked to make a selection of 16th century bakes including 12 deep filled savoury pies, jumble biscuits and for the show stopper, a 3-d marzipan centrepiece.

This little crochet ghost has been entertaining himself whilst waiting for the Halloween festivities begin… Such a cheeky chap.
We have reached the seventh week of The Great British Bake Off and only six bakers remain for dessert week.
I have decided to make an Autumnal spiced swiss roll with cream cheese frosting.
I LOVE autumn. I love crunchy leaves under warm boots, cold mornings and sunny afternoons. I love jacket potatoes around a bonfire, autumn colours and spiced lattes, I love filling my house with autumn decor, big round pumpkins…
..and I really love crochet.
I was invited to attend a pickling workshop at the Central Street Cookery School in London.
