Oh my god I am so tired! I have had 4 terrible nights sleep, or lack of, followed by a horrific night of completely no sleep, thanks to my insomnia and Golden Boy needing attention once or twice an hour, I am seriously struggling today, and oh poop it is only Monday…

Anyway to other matters; I have been moaned at recently by my little friends about my lack of baking activities – it is hard sometimes as they really aren’t interested in making anything unless is just basic chocolate or vanilla, cakes or biscuits, and I get to thinking this takes me hours to set up and clear away so my enthusiasm wanes  – I explain that they need to try something different and their parents might be interested in eating something else, but they are stubborn little monsters at times.

So they won and this week, based on the valentines theme I baked some large slabs of sponge cake, gave them each a bowl of icing and a variety of heart decorations and let them get messy (I mean creative).

(notice someone ate all the marshmallows before they were able to use them to decorate)
