Monday is our day of rest. The day when the Handmade Craft House is closed. The day when we try to ‘down tools’ and do nothing shop related! Sometimes it’s easier said than done, as everything we do seems to feed in one way or another back into the business.
So our favourite way to make this day special, (and I think I can speak for everyone here), is with cake. More specifically, a generously sized piece of cake to accompany morning coffee. This is where the phrase “Big Piece Monday” has come from in our home! It covers all generations, whether you’re three or fifty-three, and seems to speak a universal language of yummy joy!
For me, nothing in the world tastes as good as a cake fresh out of the oven. Whether it’s a chocolate cake, fruitcake, lemon-drizzle or spiced sticky ginger cake, I am there with bells on and glee written all over my face.
The best Mondays are the ones where the sun is shining and we head outside and set-up morning coffee in the garden. Then, when the cake gong is sounded everyone comes running – including the ever hopeful, crumb-snuffling, dog.
Long live Big Piece Monday!
