Referendum bakes

cakes, macarons

Scots voted decicively on Thursday to stay within the union of United Kingdom and because I don't really need an excuse for a party or to feed a crowd, I made these themed bakes for Thursday's get together.

Whisky fruit cake

Saltire macarons

Thermomix scottish tablet

Do not confuse fudge with tablet – tablet is in a superior category of its own. I found an amazing recipe on the Australian Thermomix forum (must be a lot of Scots down there!) which produced the best tablet EVER – and I was able to set the temperature, timer and get on with other things- Thermomix Magic!

Happy that my cake predicted the outcome.

Have a wonderful day!

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla If you have come as a baker my blog is i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)
