Pastry chef...

Last weekend I went all pastry-chef and whipped up a couple of cracker desserts for house guests.

Late on Thursday I made the custard base and coconut biscuits for Friday's offering..

...creme brulee with coconut meringue and fresh fruit salad:

Then on Sunday night we had dark chocolate truffle with blueberries, whipped cream and a crunchy toffee tuille. No kidding.

They were both pretty excellent.

And in other domestic goddess news, I spent $20 last week on.....a thimble. No shit. $20. I have some serious quilting to do over the next fortnight.
