After a day of torrential downpours, Saturday arrived and with it came sunshine! It’s always a bit worrying when you’ve got a tonne of cake and an iffy weather report to contend with. Thankfully the British Summertime pulled through for us.
It was a bit of a treat to have a late event start time, normally we are up bright and early but today we got a lie in… just about.
We had a few favourites on the menu along with a new addition:
* Chocolate Orange Brownies
* Peanut Butter Cup Brownies
* Gluten Free Victoria Sponge Cupcakes
* Lemon Drizzle Cake
* Coffee + Walnut Cake
* Peanut Butter Goo Bar
* Salted Caramel Brownies
Can we just take a moment to appreciate the last item on the menu?
WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL OUR LIVES?
We combined our original brownie mix with an oozing layer of salted caramel, topped with the same and sprinkled with sea salt.
And yes, they are as good as they look.
With a start time of 2pm we arrived on site a couple of hours before and set up on the edge of the pitch with a good view of the stage.
Behind us; we were in the company of another vintage vehicle, a tractor giving rides around the field.
Our best seller of the day was the Gluten Free Victoria Sponge Cupcakes. It was a bit of a surprise as generally people seem to be put off by the “Gluten Free” prefix, but not today. They literally flew off the counter.
As dogs were welcome at the event, we welcomed our four legged friends with a bowl of fresh water and free doggie treats for all the well behaved pooches that passed by.
As the sun was going down and the bands were getting louder, it was time for us to head home to some leftover cake and a well deserved brew.
We had a great time at Party on the Pitch and hope to be a part of it again next year!
Lots of Love
