This last week has seen a trio of gluten-free desserts! First there was the crazy cocoa and raspberry rainbow cake, which seems to appeal to the enthusiastic child in many of us. Work is underway on a new cake teleporting system to ensure speedy delivery to all you lovely birthday people! 🙂 Or perhaps you’d like some Lamingtons, the most delightful little cakes and ever so popular in Australia and New Zealand. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: dooooo try making or eating these cakes! Finally, there was a new concept in eat-as-much-as-you-like: the meringue nest buffet! The mindmap plan and recipe devised by myself and my niece will be with you soon!
So there you have it: three gluten-free treats that will also appeal to gluten lovers! Woohoo! And one of these treats loves travelling so let’s go to a magical land of hills, mountains, valleys and coasts.
We’re here in Wales for a few wonderful days. I don’t have much time to write but thought I’d share some non-cake photos with you. Here’s mum by a lake we found after an exciting little hike up and down hills following directions given by one (local) man and his dog. Notice the blue sky? Yes, it can be lovely and sunny here!
I must of course include a photo of sheep. Wikipedia reports over 11 million sheep in Wales, and in 2011 sheep farming accounting for 20% of agriculture! Lots and lots of sheep. A bit like Australia and New Zealand, both also lands of the Lamingtons!
I actually brought some Lamingtons to Wales. We took them on our hike up Snowdonia, the highest mountain here at 1,085 metres. We interrupted our walking for a cake stop almost half-way up then went back down the mountain rushed along by a gusty wind and rain. Another batty photo from my ‘cake in the great outdoors’ series! 🙂
It’s a shame it rained a little today (British understatement) but maybe I’ll take more photos tomorrow and even find some photogenic local cakes!!
So baaa baaa bye bye sweet reader! Till next time, wishing you a lovely week with not too much rain but lots of lovely
sheep baking and edible treats! 🙂 x
