Rust ling up tasty treats a piece of cake for Linda
Members of Kirkmahoe SWI were in foodie heaven at their latest meeting when they were given a baking demonstration by Linda McTurk.
President Christine Williamson welcomed everyone before introducing Linda, a skilled baker and caterer, who delighted the audience with her baking skills.
Linda provided recipe sheets for the six uncooked traybakes she made and during the demonstration she gave valuable baking tips, while entertaining with anecdotes and tales of baking mishaps, which can happen to the best of bakers.
This was a well-timed theme, showing baking to fill the tins for Christmas. Naturally the finished article had to be tasted and members were happy to oblige.
Fiona Sweeney thanked Linda for an enjoyable, informative evening. The next meeting will be held in Kirkton Hall on January 9 when the speaker will be Judith from the Blood Bikes charity. Competition results: Decorated cupcake: 1 Jennifer Johnstone; 2 Emma Johnstone; 3 Enid Graham. Tray: 1 Mary Harkness; 2 Suzanne Hayward; 3 Emma Johnstone.
