Well today I popped out for a coffee before the heat set in as I have a little touch of sun stroke being bold and not wearing a hat well it's asking for trouble.๐Ÿ˜‚ So decided today I would make a chocolate cake and this is what I ended up doing ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

I used to make them for my stepfather and neighbors as I very rarely eat sweet things. But maybe will have one for myself ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜€

I'm on a roll might make a fruit pie next or a minced beef and vegetable pie

Mince beef and onion pie is my top favourite!

If I make a minced beef and onion I use leak I'm funny that way ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‹

I hate you as they say. I am doing up the shopping list fro my carer, trying to avoid too much chocolate, and you put chocolate cake in front of me, what have I ever done to you๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ I'm showing that I care and you must eat more chocolate cake ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Oh my god, gimee 1,I want one of these what ever they are. Mazin work of art ๐ŸŽจ โœจ๏ธ ๐Ÿ‘Œ

Chocolate fudge cake with buttercream and cherry jam filling . Been making cakes and pies since I was ten my gran taught me. Got to make my friend at the local taverna a carrot cake with frosting but will do that at the weekend. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Gives me something to do when I'm in home ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Well done, I love cooking but I don't cake make,

I cook a wicked curry Tai and Chinese Indian you name it I cook it . Usually my Dutch friend who takes me to hospital appointments gets me making him all sorts of things pies especially cherry pie and Apple and blackberry pies .

Wow, I sure wish ๐Ÿคž I had actually met you would have finished up like a stuffed pig ๐Ÿ–

Most definitely buddy , I make a wicked fish pie, among many other things. My Dutch friend likes my cooking. Well I enjoy passing time away and cooking is something I always loved

My brilliant mum tought me to cook, in those times there was 6 of us, she taught basic but filling stuff, ๐Ÿ‘Œ 4 kids who grew up on her cooking ๐Ÿณ miracles.neverdid us any harm.give it to kid's today, you would get screams off total disgust.

I know what you are saying my gran taught me to cook plus I got the equivalent to an o level in cooking at college wanted to go catering college but my parents couldn't afford it

Win some, lose some, mate.

Totally agree but it hasn't stopped me cooking ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…

Drugs are slowly but surely taking me to another planet, cannot see the words on my phone, good night daveyboy, have a restful one when you turn off ๐Ÿ˜˜

Will do take it easy buddy ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Blackberry pie....yum yum!:-)

Bramley apple and blackberry mmmmm

They look amazing. Chocolate is absolute favourite cake.

Here you go I've made them bigger ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Iโ€™m sure chocolate jumps into my wardrobe and sews my clothes tighter!!!Ah well whatโ€™s another inch

Gimme a slice with double cream and raspberry on top!! Yummy! ๐Ÿ‘

All out of raspberries sorry but got plenty of cream .

From four I made two large ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

And I thought they were sofas!

Might as well be ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Awww thatโ€™s cruelty now!! Doubling them up !!โค๏ธ Them

Yes but gone a stage further they have molten chocolate inside top and bottom

Naughty but nice. At least it would be if I liked chocolate cake. Any other cake I love but just not chocolate. When I was a little girl I went to somebodyโ€™s Birthday party. When it came to to the Birthday cake I went home in disgust and told my Mum โ€œ They had chocolate cake. โ€œ . I know Iโ€™m odd because everybody else loves chocolate cake.

Oh man โ€ฆ Iโ€™m in chocolate heaven!!! ๐Ÿซฃ๐Ÿซฃ

Well I thought of someone I know and decided today would be a day I made one but got carried away totally ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Obviously another chocoholic ๐Ÿ˜€

Oh definitely ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Wow that's some chocolate cake you have there davey,take care in the sun, sunstroke is awful and not as hot here but near enough

I'm ok today and already out my friend as taken me for a full English breakfast ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ first one in two years ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Morning daveyboy, got through another night,wow. We have a local bread and cake shop near us, wed and sat they bring us a large selection of pies and cakes, for free..public relations on their part, but still very nice.

Hey if it free don't knock it ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Haha, its free and am busy stuffing ๐Ÿ˜‹ ๐Ÿ˜œ my face.

Fill your boooooots buddy ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Feeling so weird, doc upped my intake of serotonin, seems to think I need to calm down a bit more. Could be right, it also helps with sleeping and getting rid of negative thoughts ๐Ÿ˜ด ๐Ÿค”

Yes see we going same place different methods because I up my dosage of JD ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Do you eat fresh fish, daveyboy, l just got in some halal filleted cod steaks.love all freshly caught fish.

Love anything that comes out of the sea I have two beautiful sawfish steaks in freezer fresh squid and some sea bream mmmmm

Fish to buy in shops very expensive here but the fishermen have pickup trucks and drive up the streets with the catch of the morning , can't get fresher than still wriggling and cheaper aswell he will dress the fish if you ask him aswell ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Some people object to the halal way of preparing food,I sure do not. I'm 78 miles from the nearest coast, so have had to source my fish ๐ŸŸ have done so with great success ๐Ÿ™Œ ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ‘Œ

Sometimes you have to find stuff to eat the best way possible. I've had to go to the other side of the island just to find English sausages ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ since coming back I've been busy cake making again I've made a carrot cake ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

O.k.,so you can make beautiful cakes, we get it.trouble for us, can only look and drool. Haha.

Ok I'm sorry ๐Ÿ˜ž but better to have drooled than not drooled at all ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

That is going to last you a loโ€”โ€”โ€”ng time.

Looks delicious

Well from what I got told by my friends two daughters who demolished their cake this morning apparently it tasted good I personally don't know I haven't had any ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ as yet ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Mmmm that looks delicious. Yum yum.

You want to see the cake I've just made ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ a lovely carrot cake

Well I love carrot cake. Who will eat all that there is rather a lot. It is a lovely cake. I don't bake myself because I am hopeless I really am. I remember when I was in school doing home economics (my pet hate) and everything I made either was burnt or didn't rise. I got a few stern words about that, I can tell you. Infact I was living on ready meals until i joined healthline. It has loads of interesting topics and there was one on healthy food versus ready meals as well as other things that weren't good for you. So now i very rarely buy ready meals and changed my diet ( they say it is never too late to change). So now I eat healthy food like fruit, nuts and seeds. I discovered that I like the food. I suffer with Anorexia so it is really difficult for me you see I never cook for myself and live on mostly salads and healthier cold meat. I will I promise you stop smoking because as I said before I am determined to quit. Oh I am so sorry I have rambled on and on. which isn't really like me so anyway please accept my apologies.

Nothing to apologize for, carrot cake is healthy because you are using natural sugars from the carrots but as I don't eat sweet things the cakes usually go to friends , I make them usually when I get stressed or have things on my mind it's therapeutic

It is therapeutic and it is great for your brain. It improves memory, cognition etc. I never have though of baking anything I don't even have any baking equipment or any tins or dishes. What am I like. I used to cook for my husband but as I divorced now it seems too much effort to look for someone else at my age. I could learn to cook something as I've got a few cookbooks. I buy them all with good intentions but hey there we are.

Go dig out your cookbooks and pick something random you never know you might actually enjoy it ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜‰

Yeh I think I will it will be amazing to see what it turns out like. I hope it turns out ok. Ha ha ha

Have faith in yourself ๐Ÿ™ I guarantee it will work out ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Wow, you have been a busy man, they look scrumptious. Enjoy ๐Ÿ˜Š

I tend to do this when I have things on my mind or I'm frustrated it helps ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Yes, it's good therapy Davey, also great to tuck into xxx ๐Ÿ˜Š

I wouldn't know about tucking into it I tend to let others do that I'm not a lover of sweet things I'm a carnivor ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

No worries about your weight then !!

Not really something I worry about at this stage ๐Ÿคฃ plus I have a very large hernia behind my navel which as made my stomach area very hard so wouldn't know if I have much fat ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ can't have surgery because of anaesthesia issues and I'm waiting for my new belt to hold it in. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Certainly not a pleasant thing to have Davey but good to know it's being contained, so to speak x

In honesty it's the least of my worries , lungs shot it kidneys on the way out hernia brain almost shot it ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ if I were a car I would fail the mot and be scrapped ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ a horse definitely glue factory material ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Oh Davey, thank goodness for your sense of humour ๐Ÿ˜…

You have to have one or you just give up and I intend to keep my humour even when everything gives up . I told my oncologist that when I wake up dead I'll tell myself to make sure I'm smiling and cracking joke's ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

I only hope that they have good big cookers in heaven so I can rattle out some fruit pies and plenty of cake's ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

You will have plenty of good friends up there to enjoy your choc cake ๐ŸŽ‚ ๐Ÿฅฎ ๐Ÿฅ ๐Ÿฅž ๐Ÿง xxx

Chocolate cake carrot cake chocolate brownies and of course a Victoria sponge cake traditional

And possibly a cherry cake oh the list is endless ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ xxxxxxx

It certainly is ๐Ÿ‘

Perhaps it would be a good idea to open up a cake shop be a good income and I get the pleasure of cooking ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Sounds a good idea, on your good days ๐Ÿค”

That's where the problem sits I probably only have a couple of those in a week ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ I tend to put on a happy mask the rest of the time ๐Ÿคฃ

You are not alone Davey. Have a good night xxx ๐Ÿ˜‹

I know it just feels like it 2000 miles away from familiarity ๐Ÿ˜‚ you enjoy your evening ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผxxx

Thank you, you too ๐Ÿ˜Š

Ah me and JD are going to be fine ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

๐Ÿ™ƒ

๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Oh wow -normally i dont like chocolate but that looks nice

Well there's two very fussy children whose parents own the local minimarket who said it's beautiful and ate the lot in one afternoon ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

oh wow

Just glad they enjoyed it ๐Ÿ˜Š
