Well, nana and grandpa are coming for lunch now, so that makes it easy ;D ;D ;D

Slow roasted chicken, mashed potato and cauliflower cheese for mains.
Stewed apple pudding with custard for pudding.

See a theme? ;D

Unfortunately I won't be able to make my little cheesecake case thingys. But that's okay :)

I hadn't thought of that one Judy, but yes, you're right ;D

The main theme is food that can be eaten easily with false teeth ;) ;)

......5 doz cupcakes for a Mother's day high teaa as well as multiple batches of cookies and cream fudge and salted caramel fudge.  I have found the perfect quick butter icing which worked a treat for piping with cupcakes.  I love the cooked frosting in TMX brought to our attention by Frozzie but this is one is great when in a hurry (which is the case most times for moi!!!!). Put all ingredients in TMX - speed 5 - 30sec insert butterfly and beat speed 3 for 30-40 sec - just perfect!!!! Play around with the times if the icing is not smooth - I used room temp butter.

why so many cupcakes Robyn?...are you catering?

I wish we were going out  :-\  I'll be preparing food still at 2am  :-))  Football took up a lot of the day, then I was distracted shopping, and when I finally got home, had to drive all the way back in to pick up DD as she fell ill whilst skating, then the remainder of the day was gone  :-\

...anyway, cupcakes not long out of oven, made up some crispy olives and about to make some salmon cones (frozzies), and prosciutto roll ups. 
Decided i would make pulled pork for tomorrow's lunch, so getting that together for the slow cooker at midnight.  I'll make some fresh rolls in the morning.  I completely forgot that my Brother also has hemochromatosis, and can't eat pork, so have chicken tenders marinating for a tandoori salad he loves.
I had made fresh ricotta & a cherry compote for a Japanese blossom cheesecake.....but I just cannot be bothered at this point, besides, I remembered there's still 3/4 of a frozen Swedish cheesecake from Easter....so that'll do!
.........EAT CAKE!
