Yesterday was the local Summer Fair, raising funds for our community group – Friends of Walmersley Village. I volunteered to stock up the home-baking stall, so spent the vast the majority of Friday baking scones, cakes and biscuits.

I had to add some last minute ginger biscuits to the selection on offer! I made too much vanilla butercream, so I thought, why not try some ginger biscuit / buttercream sandwiches!

If I do say so myself, that combination really works well. So my final inventory was: Vanilla cupcakes, chocolate cupcakes, ginger biscuits, ginger biscuit/buttercream sandwiches, chocolate chip scones, cheese scones, Easter biscuits, chocolate sticks and cereal bars (actually my husband made those)! Phew.

We went over to the fair to set up on Saturday afternoon.

It was a lovely day. Even the sun made a very welcome appearance! Shame that we couldn’t really do the Teddy Bears picnic because the grass was just too wet. Over £1000 raised too, so a great result all round.

The day was brought to an amazing close, with a fly past by the Red Arrows! WOW!!

Here’s to the next one!

Happy crafting
