Nailed it! On Pinterest

I've been using Pinterest a bit lately. If you're not familiar with Pinterest it acts as a kind of noticeboard for the internet, so if you see something you're interested in or a picture you want to be able to find again you "pin" it on one of your boards. you can also organise it so I have boards for food storage, homesteading, workshop, project ideas, etc
It's great if you need a bit of inspiration or a recipe as you can search through what other people have pinned, giving you a kind of filtered Google where people have only pinned what's good! 

There's a good bit of humour on there as well and one of my favourites is when people try to make something they've seen on Pinterest and fail with the caption "nailed it" under it. So I thought I'd add my offering to the ranks and have the Peppa Pig cake as something to make someone smile. Feel free to pin it to any of your boards!


I know now that I used the wrong food colouring and that's what made her it slump and look like she'd been on the fake tan. It makes me chuckle though! Next time I'll have to make a cake with a little less ambition!
Search for An English Homestead on there to find and follow me and I'll do the same back if you have things I like pinned.

    1. I used the liquid type and it just makes it all wet and slimy. Made me laugh when I finished it though!

  3. I couldn't make one any better. Your pig reminds me of one of the Clangers. Do you remember the Clangers and dear old soup dragon, Kev?
