Emily was super excited about making rainbow bagels this week, she loves rainbows and her favourite breakfast is bagels! We eat and bake quite a lot of bagels in our house, so this challenge was perfect for us. Click here to see how we got on.

We planned our bagel making around Sunday lunch time, so they would be fresh out of the oven in time for lunch. Paul’s recipe can be found here. The recipe was straight forward and the girls enjoyed kneading the dough, Chloe kept trying to eat it again, can’t imagine it tasted too good! I managed to knead in the food colouring in while Emily and Chloe kneaded some of the other bits of dough, so luckily avoided getting their hands coloured too.

Once it had proved I rolled it out while the girls watched and then Emily did a little bit of helping to roll and twist them. They both stood and watched eagerly while I boiled them before they went in the oven.

The end result was super and we really enjoyed them with some cream cheese on for our lunch, delicious, warm and chewy, they definitely put a smile on our faces!

We made a deal a while ago that rather than making our own cake, we would make each other’s. Click here to keep reading.

Last week, I played in a uni hockey tournament after work. The day before I asked people in the office what flavour cupcakes I should make to keep us going. James suggested “Lucozade” and Kiri suggested “half time orange” cupcakes. So I went with Orangeade – I bought a sample pack of Soda Stream syrups when I made some Cola cupcakes a while ago and I hadn’t used any of the other flavours yet so I decided to give the orange one a go.

This weekend I decided to have a cooking weekend – I did a  roast chicken, made two different types of soup, baked muffins for breakfast, made the Christmas cake, baked and (half) decorated some Halloween cookies, and I also made these… chocolate orange pumpkin cupcakes.
