Hello hello hello…
So, like Reese’s Pieces, Turduckens and erm…Captain Planet…good shit can come from smooshing stuff together…and who doesn’t love a portmanteau???
Here at Wondercat we have been learning to quill with paper…could we combine quilling and caking??? Do we dare?
We done dared did!
So here’s this years cake, unveiled at the annual Chadong Christmas Champagne Soiree…
The cake was basically based on Delia’s cake ratios but with tropical fruits and coconut…I won’t be adding coconut again as it make the cake crumbly like Cheshire cheese.
The white quilling we were very happy with…the black, not so much. The black petal paste was a bit dry so didn’t roll as nice or smoothly.
But still, quilling + cake = QUAKE! To be eaten with a spork.
Oh and why we are going down this cabbit hole…
a few of my favourites…
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!!!

So, we have been less with the baking and more with the making…
The boys have got a little caked out so baking has been cut back to bare minimum…or “bear” minimum…(yeah, that was terrible…go ahead, leave this website, don’t come back.)
SO, the bear thing…we’ve been NEEDLE FELTING!!! You sort of jab un-spun wool with a needle until it turns into stuff…or you jab the bejesus out of your finger…hurts like a bitch but you’d think it was a hot coffee enema from the way we were screaming.
We needed snacks for the stichin’ ‘n’ bitchin’…making stuff really works up an appetite (ok, no it doesn’t, we are just greedy)
Black Sesame and Hot Ginger Honey Cookies
- 130g Plain Flour
- 20g skimmed milk powder
- 40g Black sesame seeds
- 80g Budder
- 80g Caster Sugar
- 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 1 tsp Ground ginger
- 1/4 tsp Cayenne pepper
- 2 tbsp Honey
- rub together the dry stuff until crumby
- stir through the honey then bring together into a dough ball
- roll out and cut out
- bake 160ºC for 15-20 mins
These were yummy, the cayenne really fires up the ginger and the smoky sesame brings it nicely together like a sweet buddery oral bonfire!
They got strangely super hard over night so these are probably “scoff the batch” cookies which is not the biggest upset in the history of the world.
Now back to the making stuff…we have been making Micro-Bears!
We want to see just how small we can get them!
