When I was a child, I spent a lot of time with my best friend who lived across the alley, and one of our best past-times was raiding our parents cupboards and creating a garden picnic, we would collect nibbles, make sandwiches, and add any other goodies that we could find in the cupboards, all to help build up the best picnic ever!
A lot of effort went into our picnics, and once ready we would head out into the garden, lay a blanket down, sit, chat and enjoy. Our garden picnics were the best lunch ever, come rain or come shine if we had our mind set on a picnic, we would, and if it did rain, we would sit under umbrellas.
Enjoying a picnic during the spring/summer months can be entertaining and fun for the whole family. It's a great boredom buster, and a great way to get together and eat some delicious food, even if the picnic is in your back garden. A great excuse to sit outside, enjoy the sun and eat yummy cakes.
A picnic for me wouldn't be a picnic without cakes, and feeling a bit nostalgic, I thought it would be great fun if Summer and I organised our own little picnic in the garden. And we did just that; one sunny afternoon, I got our biggest tray out, placed all the delicious cakes on the tray, we rolled the picnic blanket out, grabbed a drink each, grabbed some fruit and we sat, played, and ate yummy cakes. Summer was in her element, she loves being outdoors anyhow, but she loved the environment I'd created, it was something a little different after all these cold months, and something that was fun.
Mr Kipling an iconic British made cake brand that offer a huge range of fantastic cakes, pies and baked goods; they have something for every occasion. And a picnic is definitely #betterwithcake.
We didn't eat all these yummy cakes (promise) we saved some for the boys.
