Rainbow Cake (and Things I Made Thursday!)

There is still a hell of a lot of snow and ice around, hence very little gardening/growing going on (grrrr!)  So I have been doing a bit of making/baking instead. 

I saw a recipe for a rainbow cake in Good Food Magazine this month, and decided to make one for Isla's birthday next month.  It involves baking six layers of cake, so I have already starting baking and have frozen the layers I have made so far.

The colours aren't quite true to the description but I think it will still look pretty good when it is put together.  I have yellow and violet left to do.. more on this next time.

On the subject of rainbows, this is the salad I made this week:

It went down really well with the kids and looked great on the table!

I spent Thursday baking too and made some cherry scones and French bread-style rolls for a picnic lunch over Easter. 

So it is now Easter weekend and British Summer Times starts in the next 24 hours.  I so very hope it is as good as it sounds!
