royal wedding and things

hi everyone,

sorry i havn't blogged in over a week, i've been SO super busy with preparing for my french speaking exam - im so sick of talking about nuclear power in french :S

so, yesterday was the royal wedding :) i set my alarm at 7am so i could get up and watch from the beginning, but i think the enticement of champagne breakfast helped me get up so early!

i loved kate's dress, i thought it was lovely having the traditional long sleeves mixed with the more modern see-throughness of them (plus she does love a bit of see-through!)

made my nommy ginger cakes aswel yesterday, to take to my friends house where i watched the wedding. thought i would put the recipe on here as it has been requested, so here it is! ...

10oz self-raising flour
5oz caster sugar
1 teaspoon bicarb of soda
3 teaspoons of ground ginger (you can put in more if you like, as this it is quite a mild flavour with 3)
3 tablespoons golden syrup
1/4 pint corn oil (theres a brand called Mazola which i use)
1/2 pint milk :)

just put it all in a food processor and thats it!
they cook for like 25/30 ish mins at 180 degrees C

chop up some crystalised ginger and put that on the top before you cook too if you really like ginger :)
and you can make normal butter icing if you want that too
nommm :)



  1. i loved kate´s dresses too :)♥

  2. waking up for a champagne breakfast sounds amazing! i loved her dress also! this recipe sounds good...i will have to try this one soon! :)

  3. oh the wedding was such a lovely watch, think i still have a touch of wedding fever! and i love the sound of your champagne breakfast - how perfect! x


thanks for the comments you lovely people :)
