I love having grandkids to make cakes for 🙂 Ari has just turned one and had this lion cake to help celebrate. I forgot about the ears until I’d used up all the tan fondant but fortunately gingernuts are the same colour as the icing and saved the day. Found lots of lovely sites online to get ideas from, thanks for all who post your ideas!

The kiddies helped with the whiskers and did a great job!

After five years waiting, a crop of three apples is a bit of a let down. The poetic description is what made me buy the heritage tree in the first place, “Apples as big as a boy’s head.” Who could resist such a tag? Ever the optimist, I’m already thinking that next year the tree will be more mature and maybe the  apples will be bigger… and more than three would be nice.

Mmm, I’ve just cooked them up and they were a bit tart but broke up into a fluffy white pulp and had a great flavour!
