Little Baker is 2 months old and we’re very much used to her presence now, though she leaves very little time for much else. This little one has an active social life of classes and play dates. I’m writing this at the only chance I get – 4am while she has a feed.
Can’t beat a bit of bunting and I’ve wanted to make some for Little Baker’s nursery. This wooden bunting from Things We Make could do the trick.
Beetle Forest Gateaux
You can’t ignore that October features Halloween so I feel my beetle cake needs to be reincarnated in all its macabre glory. Yes it does contain real insects thanks to cochineal in red food dye. Not for people with a fear of insects.
Becka Griffin Edible Kaleidoscope Calendar
I’m a big fan of Becka’s work and have recently subscribed to her stationery mystery package (a girl can never have too much stationery) but also love this calendar. For us the old school paper calendar is essential for keeping up with Little Baker’s social life.
Jamie Oliver – Comfort Food
Not very original I know but we bought a copy of his book last month, have already cooked some recipes from it and they have been a great success. If you only cook one recipe from the book it has so be the Ultimate Burger.
Liverpool & Formby
Now is the time to dress Little Baker in a shell suit and curlers and introduce her to my homeland; Liverpool. There will be trips to Formby beach, watching the red squirrels in my parents’ back garden along with a trip to Liverpool One and a walk around Albert Dock.
