Makeshift Funnels and Vegan Cakes

I'm working on my Shiny Happy November newsletter at the moment, so I have been making and uploading nice new things to the site. Which is very time consuming, but there were just a couple of things I really wanted to post though...

Someone (?) must have thrown out my ultra technical kitchen funnel (made from a Postpak and a staple) that I used to fill jars for Emergency Cookies, so I've been using this new, equally technical technique, called 'The Paper Bag Funnel'. It works, so if you've been doing the Emergency Cookie thing, or are planning to for Christmas, I hope this helps. I also use the 'pusher' bit from the top of my food processor to push it all down well.

And the lovely Cathie wrote a recipe for me (I'm really chuffed) that would be a healthy afternoon tea alternative - they're Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes, and they include avocado instead of butter. I made them last Friday and am delighted to report that they're delicious! Thanks Cathie. They'll definitely be a regular menu item these Summer holidays.


  1. Wow, that recipe looks _amazing_ :-) Thanks for sharing!

  2. yay, you tried them! good to hear they tasted ok.
    also like the new complicated funnel gizmo :)

    goodluck with the newsletter, you are a very busy girl.


I hate to admit it, but I do love comments! Please make sure you have email 'enabled' or leave an address, or I can't stay in touch, sorry!
