This Saturday afternoon is our inaugural WI Mixer. We are hosting a little get together with our fellow WIs in our area for a little bit of cake and crafting and getting to know each other.
As part of the merriment there is a cake baking competition! We have been tasked with baking a cake that represents your WI. After a little bit of head scratching I have come up with a plan for a Rose & Cardamon Chocolate Cake.
As I have mentioned before our WI is not the usual church hall group, and we go by the name of Buns and Roses.
I thought of rose buns, or decorating buns with roses which seemed a bit kitch and far too obvious, not to mention also a tad fiddly. I finally settled on a chocolate combination as who doesn’t like chocolate?
My other half is off to his very belated Christmas party tonight with work, so I will have the kitchen all to myself. So the plan is to whip up this baby whilst humming along to so Michael Bublé.
I shall report back.
