Cake, Tee & Wheat-Free Fun

Instead of spending another Friday in the office, today I took a holiday to cater for the cast and crew of my sister's short film. The scenes being filmed today were in my parents’ house and so I arrived at midday with ingredients for a pasta bake and cakes (baked and iced the night before). Lunch had to be ready by one'o'clock as my sister had a tight schedule to keep. I figured that an hour was more than enough time to cook a simple veggie bake…

Things I learned from catering today:
1. Cooking for 11 v.hungry people is pressuring (even more so when they are standing around you in the kitchen)
2. Wheat free pasta cooks way quicker than regular pasta.
3. Grating cheese takes longer than you’d think
4. Cooking for more people than I’m used to, within a set time-frame and taking into account people’s dietary requirements was a recipe from Master Chef – my head was filled with pumping dance tunes and JohnTorode’s voice ‘Cooking doesn’t get tougher than this!' (It does of course, but in my mind I was battling it out in the master chef kitchen!)
The food was ready on time and eaten up. The cup-cakes were also a success even my wheat-free chocolate ones (even though they didn't look as pretty)!

Lastly, a little shout out to Tee and Cake who have managed to combine two very special things in my life: t-shirts and cake. They’ve actually managed to add something to the mix (a subject that is also dear to me), creating an awesome trinity if you will…Yes. It’s a dinosaur t-shirt and yes, I totally bought it.
