SIX-YEAR-OLDS AREN’T THE TOUGHEST CROWD TO PLEASE Kids’ party cakes, they’re a bit like kids; you either love them or… well, you know. I really enjoy making them even though I’ve had some spectacular fails, and no, I’m not talking about my children! Why I like it is still a mystery to me; I’m not at all crafty and have learnt my limitations after years of wonky hems and badly glued craft projects that stick to the table rather than together. But decorating birthday cakes for my children just gives me such a great sense of achievement. And they give the kids so much joy – even the ones that don’t work.

HE LOVED IT!” “AS YOU CAN SEE, Birthday bonanza I just wanted to let you know that I made the Fairy Bread Cheesecake (June 2017, p92) for my son’s third birthday last month.

Sunny side up Not only are eggs cheap as chips and incredibly versatile – you can boil, scramble, fry, bake or poach them – they’re also a powerhouse of nutrition, containing the highest-quality protein of all food sources and 11 different vitamins and minerals. No wonder they have their own World Egg Day on October 13! Get cracking with these four eggceptional recipes. COCONUT MILK With so many people opting for non-dairy milk alternatives, it’s good to have another option to try. With its light coconut taste and similar consistency to cow’s milk, coconut milk is the new kid on the block. Unlike the canned coconut milk we use in cooking, this one comes in a carton and is available sweetened or unsweetened. Check it out in our Choc-coco Quinoa Porridge (p32). Recipe…
