Diary of an ideal weekend

27 April 2013, Saturday

Woke up.

Had my Weetbix, fruit and big mug of tea.

Kissed kids goodbye, and picked up cake buddies for Sharnel Dollar's Dessert Tables 101 Workshop.

Spent the whole morning and better part of the afternoon learning the ins-and-outs of creating a beautiful dessert table, was surrounded by very pretty things and fed yummy food.

Came home just in time for husband and son to clean my car.

Husband bought take-away curry from Coles (no cooking tonight! happy dance).

28 April 2013, Sunday

Slept in.

Poked around the fridge and found freshly squeezed lemon juice.

Decided to make lemon curd.

Too much lemon curd (note to self: do something with all the egg white).

Decided to make pate sucree, a rich, buttery pastry that melts wonderfully in the mouth.

Tangy lemon curd, in pate sucree tart shell is H-E-A-V-E-N!

Went to bed before 10:00 at night, full of leftover curry and lemon tart.

** Sweet dreams **

Tuyen's wedding cookies

Grey, black and yellow.  Love the colour combination.

"  Thank you so much for the beautiful cookies - they were a big hit and the guests loved them!  The day went without a hitch and mother nature was kind enough to provide us with some great weather.  Many thanks for your congratulations.  I hope there'll be another occasion in the future where I'll get to order your cookies again!"

White heart cookies

Small heart cookies in various designs.  White on white works every time!

These cookies, in a glass apothecary jar, would add a touch of elegance to any event.
