Street Feast...

♥ Ceri makes...  what more could you ask for under one roof than delicious food, drinks and djs?!  I spent a perfect Friday night at the weekly street food market Street Feast in Hackney Downs Studios. 

SO much delicious food to choose from we hardly knew where to begin so opted for some mulled wine & hot apple rum to start.  Then after deliberating over burritos,  pork buns and jerk chicken I went for the pulled boar in a brioche bun from the Wild Game company - delicious!  Their fries cooked in beef dripping were also to die for.  The rest of my gang went for gyoza dumplings,  mussels & chips and a tasty burrito.  It was all so yummy in fact I forgot to take any snaps  ...as if I needed an excuse to go again soon!

Street Feast is on EVERY Friday at Hackney Downs studios from 5pm till late so go and check it out for yourselves!

Balham Cake Off THE FINAL...

♥ Ceri makes... while so the final day of the Balham Cake Off has come.  The final challenge was to whip up a Tray Bake - an easy choice for me in choosing what to bake as I happen to have THE most delicious Brownie recipe!  Which is now also officially a prize winning recipe,  sadly for you I am going to keep this one a secret for now!

And here is my rather lovely prize certificate! 

Thanks to everyone who came to cheer me on!  Such a fun few Sundays at Trinity Stores and as if I needed an excuse to bake anyway...

Balham Cake Off ROUND FOUR...

♥ Ceri makes...  in a truly traditional manner the clever organisers at Trinity Stores arranged for some rather serious judges from the Clapham WI to come and judge our 'Traditional bakes'.  I opted for one of my most popular bakes in the office - a Lemon Drizzle Tray Bake.  Its hardly suprising that it is so popular as the recipe I favour is one of Mary Berry's!

Other traditional bakes included a yummy Plum Bakewell Tart and a Sticky Ginger Loaf cake that would be perfect for a winter's eve.

Everyone is welcome to come & cheer me on in the final at Balham's Trinity Stores on 14th October,  see you there!
