My chocolate and Guinness cake made us very happy this weekend although there were a few hiccups along the way. It was an easy saucepan mix but it would have been even easier if I'd had some greaseproof paper. Instead I had to use foil to line the tin which was a bit tricky. Also our hand-me-down Tala measuring cup is getting just a bit too worn and I can hardly read the labels. Oh and my fourteen year old ate some of the dark chocolate, that I was saving for it, the night before. So considering these obstacles it was a triumph and will definitely be made again. As for the taste - dreamily dark and creamy on top just like the black stuff itself!
Other favourite simple pleasures this week have been:
♥ Seeing a local Beatles tribute band, The Born Again Beatles, on Friday night. Lots of laughter, singing and dancing. Sadly I forgot my camera.
♥ Catching moments of beauty in between the showers of rain. These flowers are from my in-law's garden.
♥ This talent from space and David Bowie's tweets about it made it even more cool.
