Being extremely skint and not having anything sweet in the house, I decided to make the easiest and most jammily satisfying thing in the world, jam tarts! Luckily I had some really nice locally made blackcurrant jam and a cheapy old jar of raspberry in the cupboard, so I got a nice mix of quite sharp and very sweet ones. I made some mini ones too, as then I can eat three times as many and not feel guilty! Hooray!!

Here is a cake I made last weekend for an ex-pilot's 80th birthday party. I got a bit stressed out making it because it didn't look as much like the picture as I wanted, but the client was very pleased so it was all fine in the end. Also left it til the last minute so was icing, decorating and swearing like a trooper into the early hours of friday night, which may account for all the stress. Foolish!
