And so it begins… The Six Nations!

I’m going to be honest here, I am not a big rugby fan.  That might not sound like a big deal but, being Welsh, this is tantamount to sacrilege!  My husband does like a bit of rugby but, lucky for me, is not a die-hard fan.  He is, however, a fan of Die Hard.  As am I.  Awesome film.  The Six Nations is one of two occasions during the year – the other being the Autumn Internationals, where dearest husband does like to watch the rugby.  As a compromise, I get him to look after our son whilst he does so that I can get on with business.  Works for us!

You may find that I blog more over these coming weekends, especially during match times.  This can only be a good thing as far as I’m concerned.  I’ve actually been too busy baking for profit to blog!  Now, when I say baking for profit, I mean people are actually willing to pay me to bake things for them.  “Profit” refers to the fact that I cover my costs and make an hourly wage.  Admittedly my hourly wage is roughly £0.42 but still!  So, as a tenuous link, I’d like to share with you a picture of a cake I did that is shaped like a rugby ball.  In fact, it was pretty much the same size as a standard size 5 rugby ball used in International matches.  Doesn’t hold up so well to drop kicks though.

ImageSo, to all you rugby fans, enjoy the match.  To everyone else, enjoy the cake!
