Candyfloss & Banana Bread

Now I don't get on with the kitchen, I can burn water, so when I decided to bake Banana Bread to take to my Brownie Packs' Fairtrade Night, everyone quaked with fear.

My Brownie unit is taking part in the world record attempt for as many people all over the world to eat a Fairtrade banana between noon on Fri 6th March & noon on Sat 7th March, so tonight we're meeting up with another unit and have turned it into a Fairtrade themed evening.

My culinary skills were put to the test when the butter wouldn't blend in, but once I got the electric mixer involved things seemed to go to plan.

With a cooking time of 1.5 hours I even managed to make quick card while I was waiting.

My card is for this weeks challenge over at Lili Of The Valley. The theme is "Bright & Beautiful".
I've been dying to try out my stamps from the new "Daisy & Dandelion" range since they arrived.

The stamp is "Candyfloss" from the Marshmallow & Candyfloss pack, the backing paper is from "DCWV - Blossoms & Butterflies" Mat Stack and the stamped greeting is from the new "Clare Curds Signature Range - Sentiments".

Oh by the way - my banana bread didn't turn out to bad. Martyn even said it tastes quite good. A triumph at last !!
