This year I decided to have a go at a few of the technical challenges and some of the bakes..... It was hard work doing this each week so I missed a few of them! I also joined in with the Twitter peeps which was fun as there were some lovely comments.. I am starting to get the hang of this Twitter thing !
So for the first challenge I made some Jaffa cakes. They looked simple to make and they were and I would probably make them again and this time try to make them neater!
It was a bit fiddly getting the chocolate on and the kitchen looked a nightmare!
Another challenge was a Drizzle cake - one of my favourites and I decided to have a go using my Bundt tin and I was really pleased how it came out...
In Hindsight I realised that I made these too large! They tasted lovely but were very rich you could only eat one!!
The next challenge was Gingerbread houses and I didn't have time to make these! So I made some Gingerbread cupcakes with lemon icing sprinkled with mini gingerbread men.
Next up was a Bakewell Tart - again one I haven't made before, I'm not too keen on the icing so I did a 'drizzle' effect!
I really enjoyed these challenges and love doing things out of my comfort zone. I'm already now for some Christmas Baking challenges....
