Well Easter has been & gone, I can’t tell if it was early or late or right on time this year. I know the school holidays were a little askew, which I admit has been a little confusing, I know I’m not the only one! I’m probably not the only one that feels a little cheated too, I mean there we were, Easter Monday, beautiful sunshine & then Tuesday all back to normal!! Just like that!!
There is light at the end of the tunnel, taking the perfectly formed shape of Treacle Market, well at the end of the week to be precise! What could be more perfect than that! Weather wise, it looks like it could be a mixed bag kind of day, a bag for your umbrella, one for you raincoat, a waterproof & sunshine proof one or two or three for your Treacle Treasures, that kind of day! I’m currently contemplating foot wear, I may just to err on the side of caution bringing out the snowboots, I do get cold feet! But then again it could easily be a flip-flop kind of day, don’t you just love the British Weather!
And so on to the cakes & bakes I have in store for you! I’ve decided to be defiantly Easteresk & use up all the mini eggs I have left, (this has the added bonus of them not be in the cupboard, calling to me & tempting me & given my weakness for all thing chocolate this has been a difficult decision, I feel most grown up!!) Talking of chocolate though, we have a new Dark Chocolate supplier, only Pure Origin Chocolate of course, another wonderful Treacle Market regular! I can think of one particular customer who will be very pleased!!! Of course there will be the usual suspects, blatantly tempting you but there’ll also be a few specials, & may involve rhubarb as it’s in season at the moment! There will also be the most wonderful Treacle Cake, making a return! Apparently this could be better than the legendary Luscious Lemon Drizzle… So I’ve told, I couldn’t possibly comment either way of course…
As for the Gingerbread, we shall be celebrating a little this month, so not only will there be the usual hilarious Moustaches & Hearts & Flower Lollies, there will some lovely crowns, a nod to ole Queenie who celebrated her 88th birthday this week & of course the Dragons are back for St Georges Day!!
Anyways, on with the Menu!!
Lots of delicious mouth-watering flavours as always, so do pop by Castle Street, on your Treacle Travels, where I’ll have my stall strategically positioned to tempt & tease. Given I’ve not been to Treacle since February I’m looking forward to seeing you all on Sunday, even more than usual! So wrap up warm & bring shopping bags & baskets aplenty!! And don’t forget –
‘First Up gets the cake – only crumbs if you’re late!!’
