Chocolate and Pastries

Summer 2007 journal

I've been baking daily this week, mostly in the evenings after dinner as the days have been busy. My eldest enjoys making those packet mixes where everything you need, except perhaps milk, water or an egg, is included in the box. He chose to make the Cadburys Chocolate Button mix the other evening and it looked absolutely stunning when he'd finished but boy was it sweet!!! Chocolate sponge, filled with chocolate butter cream, topped with melted chocolate and sprinkled with chocolate buttons. Much too sweet for my liking, my jaw almost locked on me as I took a bite...sheer sugar shock!

I managed to sketch one of the items I made in my summer journal too, something a little easier on the jaw...Pasties!
