My friend and writing teacher Sue Johnson launches her novel Fable's Fortune today. A contemporary romance built on a fairytale structure – with a touch of new age magic, it's available from Amazon and a fabulous read. Sue is currently celebrating her book launch with a fountain of champagne and cheeks-full of cherry liquers (yum). This has made me think of my own book launch (have I already mentioned that Fat Girls and Fairy Cakes is out on 8th Sept... I think I might have?) Anyway, I'm thinking bathfulls of champers and acres of fairy cakes. I'm also planning a Fairy Cake cocktail recipe which I will reveal nearer the time.
Meanwhile, I'm celebrating my friend Sue's book launch with some sweet little summery fairy cakes (to the right) I made earlier to toast her book and enjoy in the garden with the girls.
Light, golden vanilla sponge with a strawberry ice-cream scented icing these fairies are a perfect accompaniment to lashings of chilled pink champers and consumed with good friends. I'll post the recipe when I've finished slurping Sue's celebratory champagne and cherry liquers (I may be some time!)
