Whoopies Cakes

Amy and Zeb recently came over from Australia to spend some time with us at Haven Homestay.

Whilst out with Amy one of the days we stumbled upon a shop in Grey Lynn selling these glorious We of course bought a couple and were hooked!

So after all the visitors had left HH I set out to re-create them and as you can see my first effort looked mighty fine, and tasted just as good too - these ones are red velvet filled with cream cheese frosting - not for the dieter I'm afraid.

When the next visitors arrive to stay at Haven Homestay I am sure that they will be sampling them too. Till next time tara....

Blue Skies

Autumn has arrived at Haven Homestay, and so far it has exceeded all expectations-it has been spectacular!

Each day has been clear and blue for days on end, as you can see from the pictures above. It gladdens the soul, especially as we know winter is just around the corner - who knows the blue skies may continue - fingers crossed x
