(Let Them Eat) Cake Friday - brought to you by hubs

This Friday's Cake Friday offering is brought to you by my husband.  His first sponge, awwww.
No teasing
It tasted delicious, with lime curd filling - its called curd because its supposed to be full of curdled egg bits, right? right?
It did taste delicious
See, I even have proof that he cooked it...
Why yes, he is wearing scarlet underpants
Yesterday was the first day of the school holidays.  SIGH.  Very tired, very shouty children. By about 9am I had resigned from parenthood, only to be informed THERE IS NO WAY OUT and WE ARE IN THIS TOGETHER.

HA.  Mowing the lawn for two hours with headphones and ear protectors on, is not being in anything together. Just sayin.

We were out of bread, so I ended up having one of those wholesomely domestic days where you cook everything from scratch, and then collapse in a heap clutching a hot water bottle to your lower back and whining a lot about your sciatica.

Morning tea was pikelets.
Ready to flip
Taa daa
Going
Going
Still going
Gone
Then lunch was bread rolls (or boulders - we could've used those babies for ships ballast)
The Devil's Marbles
And pumpkin soup - rather successful.
Orangy goodness
Afternoon tea was the pancake cake (see above)
Then scrambled eggs for dinner, with yoghurt (store bought - yes I AM ONLY HUMAN) for dessert.

Knackered. Gah.  Maccers tomorrow, or at least a chinese take-away - just to redress the balance. :)

Very impressed at the cake attempt. Mine only does savoury. :(

Don't you love how they manage to do the avoiding "in it together" stuff so artfully but spout how YOU can't get away?

Take Away is definitely warranted.

Love the Boulders BTW!!

Very lucky, mine can make toast, tea and takeaway. The boulders look pretty good actually, would have been nice with the pumpkin soup.

Mel said...

He did a great job on the cake and the soup looks divine.
Enjoy that take away.

Well I've very impressed with the man-sponge. If I ever suggested that my husband bake a cake, he'd shoot a horrified gasp my way and head out to the beer fridge.

Cakes masquerading as pancakes are about all I can manage, I always blame the oven, and if they taste ok you can sprinkle icing sugar on the burnt bits and all is ok with the world. Love your blog! :)
