A very creative day

Today I hosted Sock monkey making for our bloggers get together. Leonie our ubber patient tutor helped us all create our very own monkies. However as the host I was too busy to take photos so you might have to check out PJs or Leonies blogs. So all I have is miss joy loving her new very colourful Sock monkey...whom she has named "Rainbow Dash the rainforest monkey". And because I bought knee high socks I was able to try my next project on my new sewing machine...wrist warmers.
I decided to make a cheesecake. Oh yeah..this baby was delish. A butterscotch cream Baked Cheesecake. Will be making that one again!


And I tried my very best at creating a gluten free, egg free and dairy free baking item for one of our bloggers. A jam tart. Base: castor sugar, Gluten free flour, and Oliviani. Blended together and put in the fridge to harden. Then spoonfuls pressed into a mini muffin tin. Making a little dent in the top, put a little blob of jam and then bake for 10-15 minutes.

Was so cool having PJ, Leonie, Renette, Tracy and Becky around. Glad everyone had a great time. I enjoyed playing host! Missed Neetz and Sima J.
