Pear and Orange cake

A little over two weeks ago my Mum (Nana Seaweed) and Grandma were visiting. My Grandmother, who will be 92 soon, likes to read the odd That's Life magazine . While she was here she showed me a recipe from one that looked both pretty and tantalising.
Here is the magazine pic

The recipe was pretty straight forward, but the end result was pretty eye-catching, and the taste was Mmmm!!! This one is a keeper. All those involved in the eating process said that it definitely needs to be done again. 

P.S. For those who want to attempt it, I used a vanilla cake mix instead of the butter cake that it called for, and then added the pears. Except for the quartering, this is approximately how they were prepared.

Winter woolies for phones

The phone sock that I was working on for my sister-in-laws Iphone is finished. I made it for her birthday, and plan to stuff it with little treats.

If you are interested in getting your hands on a copy of the basic pattern, leave a comment.
