As you can imagine, Mothers Day is a big deal in our house and we've been spoiling my mum like crazy all morning. The day began by bringing my mum breakfast in bed. I made homemade granola as a present and she had that for breakfast which was fun. I also made her a bouquet of fabric flowers which I will post pictures of later. After breakfast me and my mum went for manicures and pedicures which was LOVELY and I got blue on my nails and sparkly blue on my toes. I pretty much always have blue nails. After manicures my mum and my brothers went to Kew gardens and I went home to prepare tea! As every good tea party needs a theme I chose to make everything in this one red! As I write this my mum isn't home yet so I don't know if she's going to like it yet but I though I would share what I made to help people all over the world spoil their mum's too.
I don't know about you but my mum loves anything fresh and low fat so when I was thinking of what I could make her for tea I knew these strawberry's were the perfect thing!
Cheesecake Strawberry's - (recipe adapted from SugarDerby)
You will need:
- 226 grams of low fat cream cheese.
- 20 strawberry's.
- 1/2 cup of icing sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla essence
- 10 digestive biscuits
Step One: Chop the heads of your strawberry's and hollow them out using a sharp, small knife.
Step Two: Mix together the cream cheese, icing sugar and vanilla in a big bowl until they are well combined.
Step Four: Put the cream cheese mixture into a piping bag and fill the strawberry's with it. (I forgot to take pictures of this stage)
Step Five: Crush up the digestive biscuits, some people us a freezer bag and a rolling pin but I prefer to use a pestle when I'm only crushing a few biscuits.
Step Six: Dip the strawberries in the crushed biscuits.
Step Seven: ENJOY YOUR LOVELY STRAWBERRY'S!
I've never made flavoured water before and I couldn't BELIEVE how easy it was! It's so much fun and I think I might make it every day.
Flavoured Water - (recipe from Jamie Oliver)
You will need:
Step One: Crush up the strawberry's using a pestle or a fork
Step Two: Half fill your jug with ice.
Step Three: Add your strawberry mixture to the ice and then fill with water.
Step Five: Enjoy your lovely water!

Happy Mothers Day :)
