Lemon & Cranberry Cake with Kath Kidston

Saturday I made a Lemon and Cranberry cake.
I got the recipe from Cherry's blog at Tales from Pixie Wood.(I have known Cherry since before she was born)
I was just planning to freeze half when Janie phoned to say they were in the area and would come over for afternoon tea.

Just in time! Great cake and an opportunity to play with Oliver.
Do you like my new Cath Kidston pinafore?
I bought it at a designer outlet on the way home from Oxford.




The teapot was handmade and hand painted in Sweden

A present from one of the many guests who have stayed in our home over the years
