|Cakes cooling, butter softening and stew simmering|
I know that come tea time tonight, the paprika will be even more pungent and the children will moan and sigh because they do not like spicy food. And then I will moan and sigh because I do like spicy food, and I cooked it for tea, and so please just eat it without complaining, just this once. You know how it goes.
So I decided that it might be a good tactic to make something more crowd-pleasing for pudding. I made some fairy cakes. You can see the production line above: cakes cooling, butter softening to make the icing, and spicy stew simmering very gently.
I iced the cakes with rosewater buttercream, and decorated them with pink chocolate buttons. Double pink appeasement cakes; hidden away in a tin for now, until everyone has eaten their veg.
