Calling all you lovely almond fans out there – this yummy Cherry Bakewell cake was created for you! Bakewell tarts are one of my all time favourite British treats. With there buttery pastry base, cherry jam middle, frangipane topping and glacé cherry – they’re just heavenly! However since I’ve been diagnosed with Coeliac Disease, I haven’t been able to find a gluten free alternative that will curb my cherry/almond needs.
Happy beginning of December, aka CHRISTMAS MONTH!
The festivities are in full swing – I’ve put up the Christmas tree & decorations, umpteen amounts of hot chocolate and gingerbread lattes have been consumed and Christmas music has been playing at the gym. It’s safe to say life is pretty good at the moment!
Last week I attended a lovely charity ‘tea and cake’ afternoon in support of Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice in Peterborough. This is an amazing organisation and relies on many fundraising events to help keep the hospice running. Caring for people aged 16 and over who’re living with conditions like cancer, heart failure and lung disease is the main focus at Thorpe Hall.
