I have spent the day finishing off a couple of little niggling hand sewing jobs, backing up the photos from my camera and phone, printing off a couple of recipes and lots of decoupage sheets for an upcoming project (details to follow I'm sure) and a bit of blogging, not to mention (of course) some baking.
I usually make Easter Nests or egg shaped sponge cakes

I really don't know why I haven't made this before now as it's delicious. It's basically a fruity sponge flavoured with mixed spice, orange and marzipan and is a refreshing change from all the chocolate that's doing the rounds at this time of year.

Anyway, I hope you have a cracking good Easter and I'll see you on the other side when I suspect we'll all be egg-shaped and feeling rather sick.
