A big “Hap to You” to Miss Bella who is 4 today. She had a lovely 4 layer cake – way to go Ros – I do hope someone had a piece for me :).

I decided I felt like cake. Not only was it Bella’s birthday, but it was a cake sort of day ( but not vaguely lemony). When I got home from work I decided that I needed to make cake and some fresh pasta for dinner.

I cheated a little on the cake – I had a fudge brownie mix that I used and cooked it in mini loaf tins. It only made 5 mini loaves – but they taste good :). Then I worked on the pasta. The dough looked great – I kneaded it then let it sit, then it got to the pasta machine. The first stage was ok, but do you think I could get the stupid dough through the narrow spaghetti cutter. Ahh no. It kept clagging up, what was more annoying was that it clagged up the fettucine cutter too. Obviously I needed to flour the dough – gah! Anyway I reworked the dough, floured it properly and used the clean slightly wider spaghetti cutter. Success – at last, finally.

I also made some apple cinnamon breakfast muffins – they’re not too bad if I do say so myself.

So it was a cooking sort of night which I am happy I did – even if I did feel like tossing the pasta dough out the window at one point.

We’ve just been through Songkran here. I’ll find the work celebration photos and post them later this week.
