Catwalk by tigi- Head-shot hydrating Shampoo review

I felt like reviewing something today so at random I picked my lovely shampoo which I purchased with some of my Christmas money because I like having nice hair stuff. They were a few scents but I did not like oat meal and honey, the one I bought smells sweet and pleasant. It is pink in appearance which I also like and  It feels soft but not slimey and sticky.

I recommend this shampoo It leaves my hair silky and soft!

The cookie cake recipe!

Have you ever had a cookie whirl/ cookie cupcake from Millie's Cookies maybe you had the pleasure of sampling a giant celebration cookie or cookie cake their. These are amazing! The cookie part is soft baked and gooey in the middle and the icing is creamy and glossy, I like the chocolate variety it is lush!
The shop bought variety!

At my Brother Pete's birthday back in January I was going to get him a cookie cake but I thought £20 was lots to pay so I dabbled with challenging myself to make one. Firstly I searched for a Millie's cookie recipe http://runningcupcake.co.uk/2012/02/i-love-making-millies-cookies-recipe/ then I seeked out the perfect shiny chocolate frosting recipe  http://nish-whips-up-a-dish.blogspot.co.uk/2011/07/passionfruit-cupcakes-with-chocolate.html 

My cookie cake!

For your very own Millie's cookie cake/ celebration cookie just use that recipe and pour it into a shallow round baking pan, take it out of the oven when the sides start to crisp up at the top and the middle is still a little cake like. Then decorate with the frosting and a piping tool and smartie sweets.
If you cannot bake then use a Betty Crocker cookie mix as they are the best!

How to make your own dog treats

I love dogs and I love baking so recently I have made 2 lots of home-made dog treats.
The first treats contained oats, wheat flour, margarine, salt free gravy and grated cheese.
They could not be cut into shapes and were crunchy, I did not try them as they contained meat gravy.
The second treats contained strong brown flour, grated carrot, grated cheddar cheese, a little desiccated coconut and flora. I actually loved these cheesy biscuits, they had the sweetness and cheesiness of shop bought cheese biscuits, I found myself stealing from the animals.

My cat Bag-puss did turn his nose up at both, so I treat him with tuna or wafer thin chicken instead.
When I get my puppy I will give it lots of home-made treats, after research I have found that you can use peanut butter and fruit (not grapes) In treats too. I had an idea of making a yoghurt birthday cake. You can also make dog ice cream from bananas and yoghurt put in the freezer.
