2010: Good eggs

December 21, 2010

This post is gleefully dedicated to the good eggs we’ve known and loved, in beaten, whipped and cake-ified form, in 2010.

Our Peggy brought cake back from the Scottish Book Trust coffee morning for all, and it was loved.


#edteaup brought cake, tea, people and poems together for a lovely Sunday afternoon at the library.

We may not have sampled this marvel, but we can admire its beauty from a virtual distance.

However, top marks must go to our National Poetry Day tea party on Thursday 7th October. Cake-makers across the land truly outdid themselves. Some examples from the groaning tables of the day:

Lemon and orange cake by @NemesisRepublic

Cupcakes by @aikowrites

And lastly, but by no means least, some honourable mentions from teapot gatherings throughout the year:

Victoria sponge:

Raspberry cake:

Finally, they’re not strictly cakes, but Jane made them, they made our morning better, and you may need it after the sugar content of the cakes above: a recipe for savoury muffin/scones made with red onion, cheddar and chives. We’d show you pictures, but only crumbs remain.

Happy New Year and Happy Holidays to you and yours, wherever you are (or aren’t) – we’ll be back in 2011 with fresh fruit, determination, and not a single look at the biscuit tin, we promise.

    I love an organization that has its priorities in order. Cakes first! And a joyous, healthy (after all the cakes are et), peaceful, and poetic Christmas and New Year to all!
