Between the cake and the 25 cupcakes I made, I applied FOUR batches of cream cheese frosting. That’s 1kg of cream cheese, 400g of butter, and 2.4kg of icing sugar!
A trip to Patisserie Valerie, newly opened in the centre of Nottingham. I had a couple of mini macaroons, which were very tasty indeed, and shared half of a chocolatey layered cake with my friend – the layered cake was less flavoursome, confirming my belief that things that look really good generally don’t taste really good.
We cycled all the way into Nottingham from Beeston [Not pictured] to test out my new commute – I have a new job! I’m moving to work at Nottingham Trent University so I’m getting a bike so I can cycle in – its 4 miles each way! Hopefully I’ll get used to it soon!
Phew! That was a busy week! What did you get up to?
