Childrens Fairy Costume Review from Jokers' Masquerade...

It was a lovely suprise to be asked if we would like to review one of the fancy dress costumes  from Jokers' Masquerade as my daughter is a big fan of dressing up.She is such a girly girl and loves anything pretty from princesses to children's fairy costumes.I decided to go with this  Flower Fairy Costume because of the array of colours and the cute daisy chain headband and I just knew she would love it.

After recieving an email on Friday from the company I was told to expect it around Wednesday it was a great suprise then, that it arrived the next day as this was perfect timeing because it was her birthday.She was so excited to open it and could not wait to wear it she said she loved it and with the smile on her face I knew I had picked her a great kids fairy costume.







What I think of the fairy costume.

I think it looks lovely the colours are great and I would say the size is spot on.I ordered a size large 8-10 year and although she is only 7 years old she is bigger than the average child at her age at her age and  I always order her this size in everything.I love their website as they have a huge variety of Childrens fancy dress  .

I am glad I've found this website as for my 40th birthday I have always said I would love to see a Rocky horror stage show and they have a perfect Columbia dressing up costume, so watch this space..Eek 40 next May...I will defintly be checking them out for Kids Halloween costumes and Christmas presents.I would recomend this website and they have a huge amount of themes for every occasion.

Flower Fairy costume is £20.49 and on offer at the moment at £18.49

About this review- I was sent a Flower Fairy costume free of charge for the purpose of this review.I was not paid for this post and all thoughts on the website and costume are my own....

Spicy Apple Cake...



Spicy Apple Cake

By Niamh Stott

Serves 8

357 calories / 14.3g fat per portion

Niamh says: ‘This is a big hit with kids and adults alike - and it’s soooo easy to make!’

Ingredients

  • 120g (4½ oz) Kerrygold butter, softened
  • 225g (8oz) light muscovado or light soft brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 350g (12oz)
  • Bramley apple sauce
  • 260g (9½ oz) plain flour
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • ¼ tsp ground cloves
  • whipped cream, to serve

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C/fan oven 160°C/Gas Mark 4.
  • Line a 20cm (8 inch) round cake tin with baking paper.
  • Beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.
  • Gradually add the eggs, beating well between each addition.
  • Stir in the vanilla extract and apple sauce.
  • In another bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger and cloves.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the butter and sugar mixture, folding together with a large metal spoon until just combined.
  • Spoon into the prepared tin and bake for 45-50 minutes, or until a fine skewer comes out clean.
  • Allow to cool in the tin before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Brush the top with apple sauce and serve with whipped cream.

Cook’s tip: 

  • For an alternative topping, melt 20g (3/4 oz) Kerrygold butter in a non-stick frying pan and add 1 eating apple, cored and thinly sliced.
  • Fry gently until softened, then add a pinch of ground cinnamon and 20g (3/4 oz) sugar.
  • Cook for a few more moments, cool slightly, then arrange on top of the cake
