snacks Challenge: 7 Days of Baking

OK, so I popped over to the Real Food Festival at Earl's Court last weekend and came away with a selection of ready-make mixtures for baking all kinds of cool stuff from Wright's Baking. I have:
  • Ginger Cake
  • Chocolate Cake
  • Toffee Cake
  • Carrot Cake
  • Parmesan & Sun-Dried Tomato Loaf
  • Cheese & Onion Loaf
  • Mixed Grain Loaf

I'd like to say "It is my intention to bake one every day for the seven days from Monday 16th May" but, frankly, I know myself better than that. I ain't kidding when I call myself lazy. Despite giving this posting a title that suggests I'll do one every day, I know that's highly unlikely. Despite my best intentions, even if I wanted to bake one a day, I know I wouldn't. Despite making it easy on myself by buying liners for my loaf tins (I could actually bake three at a time if I fancied washing the bowl three times before getting anything in the oven... or, y'know, buying two more bowls), I know there will come a point (probably Tuesday) where I decide I can't be bothered, and spend the day playing videogames instead.

And no, that wouldn't even include WiiFit.

So, instead, what I shall say is this:

"It is my intention to bake all of them soon."

I'm not saying when, just that I'll do it. Maybe there will be other postings in between, maybe there won't. One thing you can be reasonably sure of is that I'll decide to embellish at least one of them. For example, I have some large chunks of 100% Cacao chocolate sitting in the fridge, waiting to find a suitable home. Did you see the phrase 'Chocolate Cake' up there? Hmm? You see where this is going?

You know you like the suspense.
