Here is little peep at some work I've been doing for a collaboration with my dear friend miss j. I wanted to create some special packaging and I'm thrilled with the result.
Our little project will make it's debut with paper boat press at the finders keepers tomorrow.
I'm so pleased it's Friday, have a lovely weekend...

I just finished reading "A Homemade Life"
It's one of those books that you just don't want to end.
I loved every page.
Friday afternoon seems to be my favourite time to spend time in the kitchen. This week it seemed only fitting to bake the cake.
Now I am rather partial to chocolate, and cake, and the two together make me very happy. This cake makes me giddy. A joy to make, it reminded me a little of a filling I used to make for chocolate tarts, only it's so much better. We served it with vanilla bean ice-cream and a lovely dessert wine from Witches Falls. If you are coming for dinner any time soon, chances are this will be on the menu because it's a keeper, hearts, minds, hands down, no contest...
