Game of Scones…

Brace yourself, tea time is coming…

While baking trends continue to change at a dizzying pace, with jazzy new creations such as ‘gravity defying’ cakes, ‘loaded’ drip cakes and even ‘raw’ cakes it is nice to know that the humble scone will always remain a constant tea time favourite.

HOWEVER that is not the say that the scone has been left behind in the fast changing baking world. The other day I stopped to ogle the window display at the Bluebird café in Edinburgh where they sell an array of different scone varieties including maple bacon, blueberry and lemon curd, peanut butter, banoffee and even jaffa cake. While the concept of a jaffa cake scone is something that would make my grandmother and even mother wince, I was in awe.

While my Cranberry and Coconut and Chocolate and Banana scones may not be as zany as some of the Bluebird’s creations, I hope they do a good job at showing that scones don’t always need to be just plain or fruit.

p.s. If you don’t watch Game of Thrones, you should. It’s very good.

The Liebster Award

I would like to say a huge thank you to Bunny for nominating me for a Liebster Award.

I am sure I am not the only blogger out there who wonders if anyone is actually reading their blog and to be honest I have always accepted the fact that the majority of my views had most likely come from my Mum-anyone else with a Mother on Facebook will understand how overzealous they can be with their likes and comments on pretty much EVERYTHING you upload!

Therefore it is a lovely feeling to know that ‘real people’ actually get enjoyment from my posts. You may have noticed I have been somewhat absent from the blogging world for the last couple of months. Unfortunately ‘adulting’ has taken over a bit and therefore blogging has taken a backseat. However I think that this little confidence boost is just what I needed to get me back on the blogging wagon and hopefully upload some new and exciting things over the upcoming months.

So, the Liebster Award…
