The best way to use up left over cake decorations is to do some more baking! I have a pot filled with left over flowers of various shapes, sizes and colours, so I picked out these ones to create some elegant biscuits! I usually use a biscuit recipe from the Biscuiteers Book of Iced Biscuits as they are always tasty and have the perfect texture. Click  here to try their vanilla biscuit recipe.

I bought a set of star cookie cutters several years ago to make a star cookie tree and never got round to using them, so I thought instead of making a gingerbread house this year I would make a tree! Anne and I are still holding up our Christmas gingerbread baking day and it didn’t disappoint this year, can’t think of a more fun way to spent a day than baking with a friend!

It’s not long till the bake off final, so only a few more weeks of technical challenges left. I’ve got a very busy few weeks, so it’s a good job that last weeks challenge was a quick and easy one!

Last year we took it in turns to make them each week but we both decided we wanted to try the technical challenge from cake week – Jaffa Cakes!

IMG_3427In 1957 our Grandpa, Alf Denning, opened a hardware shop on the Bristol Road in Northfield, Birmingham. It was called Denning’s Hardware and sold everything from a single nail, to wheelbarrows. As kids we often used to visit the shop when we went up to Birmingham to see our grandparents. I remember running round the shop with the sticker gun and using it to “price” ourselves! Click here to see what tools are for sale!

If you follow us on Facebook and/or Twitter you’ll probably have seen some baking over the last 12 months that hasn’t made it onto the blog. Sometimes we spend so much time baking that it’s hard to find the time to blog about our creations, especially since we also work…. Click here to find out what else we got up to last year.
