FNSI reminder

I’ve been busy in the kitchen making a yummy slice for tonight’s get together…..it’s my favourite of all time….Vanilla Custard Slice! I thought I’d  make something extra special seeing as it’s one of my bestest stitching buddy’s birthday today……you might like to drop in and wish her a happy birthday on her blog……HERE  A lovely read on her birthday post too! So here it is…… 024 (Medium) and you can get the recipe HERE….I didn’t have any passionfruit for the icing, but I made do with the icing sugar, 5 drops of yellow colouring, some vanilla extract and 1-2 tablespoons of milk.  It is so hot and humid here that the icing didn’t hold it’s own but its in the fridge now and should be ok!  But, despite that, it tastes just as I remember it as a child (and I have the picture to prove it….I did the actual taste test for morning tea…surprised???? LOL ) 027 (Medium) …..one excellent recipe I’ll be using again and again (if my waistline can stand it!!!) LOL whisk Now, are you all signed up for tonight’s FNSI???  Make sure you do as there’ll be plenty of vanilla slice to go around!!!  And I got a terrific tip from Susan about making perfect Flying Geese blocks EVERY time, which I’m going to have a go at this evening as I make my next block for the Delightful Stars QAL  If you go visit her at her blog, you can see how she does it!….perfect every time…..I love that idea!!!! delightful-stars-250 Make sure you sign up in my last post HERE….there are a couple of prizes up for grabs this month!  Hope to see you tonight! *wink* xox Sugary hugs :o) my signature

I'm signed up and ready for dessert! I looked at the recipe. What is custard powder? Is that sort of like instant pudding? Thanks for mentioning my flying geese. I hope you love it and find it exactly what you like. If you do, we'll see if we can work out something about at least one set of the rulers. =)
