skiing

I went skiing with a homeschooling group. When we got there we put our boots on and then we got our skies. Next we had to wait for a couple of hours for our turn while we where waiting we where playing in our boots. And then it was our turn the first thing we done was walked in our boots and it was really hard to walk in them.

Next we learnt how to put our skies on and next our teacher told us how to go down when we go down we had to bend our knees then our teacher went down. And then we all had a go when it was my turn i was really scared but when i went down it was not scary. And then we all had a couple of goes going down next we had to put our left and right leg up while going down and we all had a few goes at that. And then we had to jump while going down i was really scared but it was ok. The next thing we had to do was sing and do head shoulders knees and toes while going down and we all had goes at that.

Next we had to play a game which we split in to two groups. Our teacher got two tiers and put them at the bottom. Next one person from one team went down and had to take their skies of and run round the tier three times and run back up and every one had a go. It was the end of skiing. And i really want to do it again it was so so fun.

Red velvet cupcakes

I made some red velvet cupcakes they were very easy to make i had lots of fun making it they were also very delicious.Here is the recipe that i used.

 

Makes: 12
Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 25 minutes

You will need 60g unsalted butter at room temperature
150g caster sugar
1 egg
20g cocoa powder
40ml red food colouring
½ tsp vanilla extract
120ml buttermilk
150g plain flour
½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
1½ tsp white vinegar
1 x 12-hole cupcake tray, lined with paper cases

For the frosting:
300g icing sugar, sifted
50g unsalted butter, at room temperature
125g cream cheese, cold

Method

 

1. Preheat the oven to 170°C/325°F/gas mark 3.
2. Put the butter and the sugar in a freestanding electric mixer with a paddle attachment (or use a handheld electric whisk) and beat on medium speed until light and fluffy and well mixed. Turn the mixer up to high speed, slowly add the egg and beat until everything is well incorporated.
3. In a separate bowl, mix together the cocoa powder, red food colouring and vanilla extract to make a very thick, dark paste. Add to the butter mixture and mix thoroughly until evenly combined and coloured (scrape any unmixed ingredients from the side of the bowl with a rubber spatula). Turn the mixer down to slow speed and slowly pour in half the buttermilk.
4. Beat until well mixed, then add half the flour and beat until everything is well incorporated. Repeat this process until all the buttermilk and flour have been added. Scrape down the side of the bowl again. Turn the mixer up to high speed and beat until you have a smooth, even mixture. Turn the mixer down to low speed and add the bicarbonate of soda and vinegar. Beat until well mixed, then turn up the speed again and beat for a couple more minutes.
5. Meanwhile, make the frosting by beating the icing sugar the remaining 20g of the unsalted butter together in a freestanding electric mixer with a paddle attachment (or use a handheld electric whisk) on medium-slow speed until the mixture comes together and is well mixed. Add the cream cheese in one go and beat it until it is completely incorporated. Turn the mixer up to medium-high speed. Continue beating until the frosting is light and fluffy, at least five minutes. Do not overbeat, as it can quickly become runny.
6. Spoon the mixture into the paper cases until two-thirds full and bake in the preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the sponge bounces back when touched. A skewer inserted in the centre should come out clean. Leave the cupcakes to cool slightly in the tray before turning out onto a wire cooling rack to cool completely. When the cupcakes are cold, spoon the cream cheese frosting on top.
