A wee baking interlude.

Good morning, quite a mild morning today and it isn't raining, bonus.
I enjoy a brisk walk along the beach this morning, it felt almost like Spring, not too cold and the sun in the sky.
Today I have a bit of a treat in store.  I have a hot stone massage later.  Can't wait.
Then it should really be back to relax but I have a few chores to do and card orders to start.

Now for something a little different.  Over the weekend I decided to experiment with my muffins again.
I have decided to call this cake my Battenberg muffin.

I had some marzipan left from icing my Christmas cakes so decided to use it in these cakes, I have also swirled some colouring so you get the different colour combination as in a Battenberg cake.
Then topped with some almonds to finish.
I like these cakes and they really taste like Battenberg although next time I think I might grate the marzipan throughout the cake rather than just in the middle.

That's all from me today, I am hoping for some crafting time later in the day but for now I better get the exciting chores done first.  Have a good day.

They sound absolutely delicious Erika and they don't look bad either! I absolutely love marzipan and Battenberg reminds me of my Nan. Enjoy your massage. I've never had one in my life - well not a professional one anyway. Barbxx

They look delicious and I'm sure they will have all gone by now, lol. I never have much success when experimenting and altering recipes but these turned out great.
