Wheeeeee Splash!

posted in: News and Events | 12

thomas skovsende The ‘Wheeeeee Splash’, is me diving into my blog! My wonderful friend, Adrian Watkins who built this website for me, told me to ‘dive in’ and do my blog. So here I am.

Today has been interesting, eventful, and rather exciting. I had a fantastic photographer, Thomas Skovsende,  come to my home and take pictures of me and my cakes. How lucky am I? The photos and accompanying article will appear in September’s ‘Prima’ magazine. I also kind of killed two birds with one stone as I had masses of food to prepare for an event on Sunday, and therefore had lots of food for Thomas to photograph. The event I’m talking about is Windrush 66. A celebration of the 66th anniversary of the Empire Windrush arriving in the UK, bringing with it the first large influx of immigrants from the Caribbean. I’m making cakes and Caribbean food for the event so will be living in my kitchen for the next day or so.

The not so exciting but eventful part of my day was to go to a meeting with the police to discuss licensing issues for Windrush 66. Thankfully all has turned out well but it’s a learning curve I need to master. I’m off to my kitchen to bake…again! Thank you so much for visiting my Blog.
