Sorry been a bit slack on the old FF posts for a while. Mainly because I was on holiday one week and had a project to finish off following the break, so i’ve not had the chance to post for a while. I was planning on doing a little bit about the holiday, however that intention was slightly scuppered since I was unable to take any holiday snaps. This was due to a water based incident which led to Dave’s camera (purchased as a birthday present 2 months prior) getting an unwelcome bath in the Portuguese waves. Writing about a holiday with no pictures to accompany the tale seems a bit pointless, hence no holiday post.
Anyway back to the grind as they say. One of the fab things to return to though is my fave t.v. programme ‘The Great British Bake Off’ (Tuesdays at 8pm on BBC2). Yum all those tasty baked creations. Just wish I could bake a cake to save my life! I blame our crap oven, ahem. As you may now have guessed it is this programme which has inspired this weeks Folksy Friday post.
1. To kick off the list i've chosen this fab 'Bake More Cake' letter press print. I've always been a fan of letter press and its elegant simplicity, even though its something i've never really got into myself. I always managed to make a complete mess when printing, getting more ink on myself than the page.
2. This very fitting 'Great British Biscuit Apron' just had to go in. This would make an ace present for an avid baker. Love it!
3. Check out this awesome bread board from the Earthome shop. Stylish and functional. It looks like there could be some other fab boards available in their shop in the future judging by the pics in their shop banner.
4. I'm a bit partial to crocheted food items and on Folksy there are certainly many to choose from. This wonderfully random crocheted jammy dodger tape measure holder takes the biscuit... ha ha (sorry).
5. Clever, functional and recyclable this cardboard cake strand would make a fab feature at a birthday party. You can find this at the Card Tiers shop.
6. Yum yum. A very delicious looking lemon meringue pie soap. Definitely looks good enough to eat, only you probably shouldn't or you'll be blowing bubbles for days (from both ends).
The SoapyLicious shop has some other very scrummy looking products too.
7. I couldn't resist this perfect little iced doughnut pin cushion from Woolly Duck. In the words of Homer 'Mmmm dooouugghhnuts' *drool*.
8. Finally i stumbled across this lovely 'Home Baking' fabric covered notebook, made by the talented Jane Lightfoot. The lady has serious sewing skills. The ideal place to note down all your baking recipes and secrets.
If my post has inspired you to bake and you get an irrepressible urge to send some of your tasty baked treats such as cake my way, then that is absolutely fine by me :)
Have a great weekend x
