WATERMELON CELEBRATION CAKE (100% fruity fun!)

At this time last year, I was being transferred from the delivery ward to the maternity ward at SÖS. That’s right; Oliver (aka Baby Marzipan) has just turned 1. I could cry. Oh, wait.

VERY BERRY WATER

Whilst perusing the Donna Hay website, I came across a lovely image with accompanying directions for flavouring water using green apple and mint leaves, raspberries, or lemongrass and ginger. There is nothing revolutionary about this idea, but I found myself inspired by its pretty simplicity. Peeking expectantly into my seldom-opened freezer bottom drawer, I discovered […]
