Easter Fall Out

Last week was a very quiet week, we made all the usual goodies but we think everyone was full of chocolate or penniless after Easter.

We were left with quite a lot of products by the end of the week. There was no way me and Jen could gorge our way through them all, so in the end we gave everything away to the homeless charity, SLS.

We had two new items last week, firstly the steak and kidney pies and then for the weekend we had Lemon Cheesecakes, both were a hit.

We were left with quite a few pasties which made me think, do we just stick to Cornish Pasty and Cheese and Onion Pasties? Although it was nice to give food to SLS, it was still heartbreaking with all the work I had put into baking Steak & Ale and Chicken & Chorizo, and that’s not even mentioning the Smartie Cookies. The jury is out.

So, what to do next week? We will stick to the favourites unless alternative requests come through..

The Simnel Cake

Simnel cake is a light fruitcake eaten during the pre-Easter period in the United Kingdom. It is distinguished by two layers of marzipan, one in the middle and one on top. The top layer is capped by a circle of  “marzipan balls” made of the same paste, and is lightly browned under a grill.
.
The Simnel cake is now simply called an Easter cake. Before we all started ordering these for Easter, the cake was mostly associated with Mothering Sunday.
.
In 17th Century Gloucestershire and Worcestershire the custom of live-in apprentices and domestic servants going home to visit their mothers on Mothering Sunday started, checking that their families were well and taking food or money if needed. This was a time of year when food stocks were low, and the high-calorie simnel cake was useful nutrition.
.
Conventionally eleven marzipan balls are used to decorate the cake, with the story that the balls represent the twelve apostles, minus Judas. You will notice a gap in the marzipan balls which signifies the space of Judas.

Summer Time Treat

Summer has apparently arrived. For us it starts the week after Easter, last year we had afternoon teas on offer, delivered to your home. We will be doing likewise this year.

This is what we will be offering each Saturday, they must be pre-booked in order for me to have everything baked on time. I would like to add EVERYTHING will be handmade by us.

On top of all of this, I’ve started to write a cookbook with a the recipes of the sweet goodies that we bake, so, as you can imagine I’m quite excited by this.
