super hot here too and I don't have air conditioning.. I was wondering if anyone has one of those counter top convection ovens and do they throw off alot of heat? Trying to think of alternatives.

I was about to post the same thing as didavista. I have been looking in several stores and was wondering if they are any good at baking cakes. which ones are the good ones and which ones you are paying for the brand.

14C here at the momnent - for those poor souls melting in the States thatws a cool 58F.

Our heat will return in a few months....and the raging out of control bushfires along with it... so the 2C mornings and driving rain are a blessing at the moment.
We sit and icon_sad.gif as we watch the world news and see the fires and sweltering heat you Americans are suffering through -


You just have to love Spring and Autumn - cool mornings and very suitable days - yes, i love those two seasons.

Thinking of you fellow bakers and cakers who are trying to keep cool

Chelle, Katherine, Bluehue, from the other side of the world~~

I never knew the seasons were reversed until the 1980's when I made a huge Thanksgiving Dinner (American holiday) in a small apartment (flat) in late November. I was in Sydney and the temp was 42C (107 F).

Now I am REALLY appreciative of winter being when it's supposed to be, back here in the States. Whew.....it'd be a bi*ch trying to do all the Thanksgiving and Christmas Baking when it's hot.

Apti, My Mother still insists on a baked Christmas dinner served in the middle of the day .( Fine for her she hasn't actually cooked it for about 25 years ) Add that to the fact that my sister married a Swede and we have added many of those cultural elements to our celebration . Along with the seafood elements and salads that the younger members of my family enjoy.

I can very much appreciate cooking a Thanksgiving dinner in Sydney heat.

However , when I was in Sweden for Christmas it felt strange for us to have a white Christmas and missing the beach on Boxing day .

I'll bet! (and good for mama! You know all of you would totally miss the huge, hot Christmas dinner if it wasn't there one year.)

Thanks for the sympathy about Thanksgiving. Not only was it hot, but it was the first time I'd ever done that whole shindig by myself! (Usually it's a pot-luck and about 12 people contribute.) I had to do everything from scratch since the stores didn't stock canned pumpkin, pie crusts, fillings, dressing, etc., and I had to special order a huge turkey about 3 months in advance. Over here in the States, there are a million turkeys available in November and December (and they are super-cheap!).
