I couldn’t resist buying a silicone cake mould in the shape of a skep.
The resulting cake looked OK.
And it wasn’t long before I heard I had won a prize – complete with my name engraved on it! I am very proud, of course. However, I was also surprised because the award was for a short article I had written for the HWBKA magazine about the new venue for the Spring Convention. I had also brought back a large order of new equipment for them for their new apiary.
