PB044320.JPGI can’t believe that this years bake off has now finished! I really enjoyed watching it and thought the new presenters were great and I was really pleased with the result, Sophie throughly deserved to win! I’m actually feeling quite relieved that all the technical challenges are now done and I can start to think about Christmas baking. So  here is my attempt at the iced ginger biscuits.

This week was caramel week on the Great British Bake Off and I was intrigued to see what the technical challenge would be. I didn’t watch it live but Becky text me after it finished and asked if I fancied buying an ice cream waffle cone maker – I was intrigued! Since neither of us own one, and Becky said she wouldn’t use it (it’s a bit hard to make them gluten free) I said I was happy to buy it but asked her to order it for me since I was away and worried it wouldn’t arrive in time. When I got back on Thursday it was waiting for me! Click here to see how I got on.

In a mad rush yesterday I thought I would try and squeeze in this weeks technical challenge before we went away on holiday and it meant that we had some baked goodies to eat while we’re away. Click here to see how I got on making the fortune cookies.

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! I thought they would be good for a post cross country race snack, so made a double batch to take to the first Met League cross country race of the season. Click  here to see how I got on.

Time for GBBO technical challenge number 2! I love Viennese whirls, the biscuits just melt in your mouth, so I was really pleased with this weeks challenge. I have made them before, but probably about 10 years ago, so it’s nice to give them a go again. Click  here to find out how I got on.
