The sky was getting darker but, with the campfire roaring away, we made our orange chocolate chip muffins and soon had them cooking on the fire.
Meanwhile, with one eye on the weather, we decorated a wooden cupcake candle holder. The wood fell silent as everyone concentrated on their original design – stripes and spots, cup cakes with icing and cherries on top.
Right on cue our muffins were ready and the verdict, delicious. We packed up and headed back to school. And the thunderstorm that was forecast – never arrived!
