It's that time of year again - the Church Fete. This year Mum and I baked about 2/3 of the cake stall. And we baked less than normal.

32 cookies, 4 raspberry and white chocolate cakes, 6 lemon drizzle cakes, 9 fruit cakes, 2 batches of chocolate brownies, 7 chocolate sponges, 6 coffee sponges, 6 coffee and walnut sponges, over 100 scones.

And then it rained, and rained and rained.

The fete was moved inside the church with doors balanced on pews for the tables.

We made just under £300 - down on previous years, but still enjoyed ourselves. Normally this is my only baking of the year, but my husband has made comments that he would like to see more evidence of my baking the other 51 weeks of the year... I'm looking for a really good chocolate loaf recipe - rich and chocolately, which requires no icing! If you know one, please let me know!

Doors on pews is pretty resourceful if you ask me and £300 isn't bad in the rain. I wish I'd come, the cakes look lush!

What an amazing spread of cakes! More to the point - why did this post not come to me on bloglovin like the rest of your posts? Am worrying now that I may have missed more! xx
