Random musings of a fast dieter

Not sure how this blog will turn out, so for now it can be described simply as 'random' but probably quite nerdy and foody!

No time to continue my back story today...have been preparing for DS's birthday tomorrow...baked and decorated 36 chocolate cup cakes for him to take to school..wrapped presents and started the birthday cake to be finished tomorrow (also heavy on the chocolate). Tried to pipe white chocolate ganache on the cakes but it wouldn't pipe so had to settle for splodges! Disguised the amateur nature of the icing by sprinkling with chocolate curls. DS did a quality control check and pronounced them delicious...phew! Will have another go at chocolate ganache tomorrow but will not be trying to pipe it! Watched the first on the new series of Masterchef tonight...intrigued by the custard filled deep fried courgette flowers...I wonder what they're like? Looks like a single one would probably be an entire fast day's calories! :lol:
