I had fun last weekend playing with my new Tala Icing Pen*. I managed to bake some yummy lemon shortbread biscuits early on Sunday morning to along to my brothers cricket lesson. At first it was great to use and I had lots of fun with it. As you can see I wasn't very good at it.... heehee! When I had to refill it with more icing it began to get really sticky. I think when you pull the plunger back up, it brings up the left over residue icing and then it spills over the side. I then got terribly sticky and the fun was over.
Anyway if you fancy having a go at making some yummy buttery lemon shortbread, here is the recipe. It's easy to make as you do it in a blender and there is no putting the dough in the fridge to firm up...win win!
I'm feeling really excited for this weekend. It's mean to be really hot these upcoming days, up to 28c here on Sunday!! We are having lasagne tonight which is one of my favourites! Tomorrow I am popping into town to buy some birthday presents for my mum ...then I'm planning a family dinner for Saturday evening. I'm going to start looking on pinterest for some ways to pretty up the garden for it. Fingers crossed we've got some spare fairy lights around. Apart from that my plans will consist of lazing in the sun and drinking some refreshing cider whilst doing some reading. Ahhh!
What are your plans? Do you like to be out and about in the hot weather? Or do you like to simply laze at home and keep cool? I'd love to know!
I hope you have a lovely weekend. Remember your sun cream!
