    Sooooo, we had a jubilee party / dinner thingy. I kind of got a big flag happy with decorating our flat at university. They didn't have any bunting so I improvised with napkins. Then we make jubilee cupcakes and had a good old roast dinner! We even had place names for each member of the royals

    I took this photo of the red arrows flypast on the day of the Jubilee, Tuesday 5th June. I was drawn from the public ballot to attend the event and was seated in the North Stand opposite the palace - the planes flew straight over me! Was such a fantastic day from beginning to end.

    I'm afraid I didn't know about this until after I did my baking, and I know it won't win against the amazing things already posted, but I made viennese biscuits the other day, which are very British (I think!). They were very melt in your mouth I also made a marble loaf cake recently, which I've got a pic of too

    Presumably Viennese biscuits are from Vienna? That's in Austria

    Jubilee Baking Sunday; Homemade orange cupcakes with homemade vanilla butter icing piped on some as just learnt how and some with Britannia toppings. Then I made meringues for the first time (only pics of red and white as the blue was delayed lol but we used blue bowls) with hand-whipped sweet cream, strawberries and hand toasted almonds which I did for the first time as it all seems better finished at home.

    One of a batch of cakes I made over the holiday period, have a picture of them on a cakestand somewhere, law of the world that I can't find it!

    Red, white and (greeney :/ ) blue.
    Victoria sponge themed!

    ;Edit;

    Forgot to put what I did on the day of the jubilee, movie day with my freinds, then went to see the lighting of the beacon in my hometown, up past the war memorial.
    (If I can find the pics, I'll put them up)

    Awesome photo! it also has a very "old" feel to it, like it's a photo from the 40s or something I'm not sure if that's just me being weird though lol.

    Thanks! I took it on my Canon AE-1 so it's a scan of the developed film, some of the colours washed out so that might be why it looks old?
