There's a Diamond Jubilee celebration at my son's school this Thursday for which I have to bake something vaguely in theme. Then we're off to the country on Saturday and Sunday, with a BBQ to go to, and dessert to bring. And finally our street is having a party on Monday.
So I've been spending the last week drooling over all sorts of wonderful Jubilee-themed baking and desert ideas.
Here's some of the best, yummiest, or easiest ideas that I've come across or have been suggested by our PlayPennies parents.
The weather forecast for the weekend made me laugh though. Apparently it is going to cool down but still be fairly pleasant. Kind of sounds like how most people I know feel about the actual Jubilee. Not exactly excited in any way, but a pleasant four days off and a chance to close the street and let our kids play outside for a change.
Now just make sure you stock up on plenty of red and blue colouring for the inevitable icings!
