Sunday Sketches: Falling in love with Sponge Cake


While away in London the past few weeks, Mr. Toast and I had the opportunity to visit a few new tea shops and one of them was Cooplands Secret Garden Cafe. Needless to say, we not only fell in love with the Secret Garden Cafe in Scarborough but I fell head over heals for their chocolate sponge cake! Oh dear me. Thus the inspired illustration above of a recipe for the absolutely delicious and divine sponge cake.

With that said, we're home safe and working on getting settled back into a routine of sleep and such. For that reason, I'm posting Sunday Sketches early in case I/we fall asleep again! Hee Hee I"m looking forward to catching up with everyone. You've been missed dearly!

  4. Mmm... that looks delicious. I had a notion once to illustrate my favourite recipes for my children. I've still not managed to start.
