As I mentioned, Han and I were busy creating in the kitchen yesterday. I say we, but Han was doing her thing, and I was doing mine. She's been meaning to make some toppers for a while, well I say a while, I mean over a year now, but unfortunately, due to one thing and another, we never managed to find the time. Queue the Easter Holidays, and we were set on getting some creative time together to make things we'd promised to do during the beginning of lockdown! Originally I would have been...
 
So here they are... Chocolate Tiffins. Managed to get one photo before they were demolished by the adults and grandchildren.
 
So here is my very first attempt at any kind of cake, baked last week... certainly an adventure. Seemed to be received ok cake loving wife...
 
So I have finally broken in my new oven today and made these chocolate chip cookies...lol, erm cupcakes! I made them using large eggs, with orange yolks and dark chocolate chunks. I have sussed out that standing/prepping over a new oven makes me warm, and I can burn my hand when I place the cupcakes in the oven. 🤣 Anyway other than that they baked really well and taste really fluffy so not bad. I shall try and make sure I get back into the swing of baking now that the renovations have...
 
Hello, I thought I would share that yesterday I baked some profiteroles with a custard filling. this is the first time I have baked choux pastry and I made the custard from scratch too. I am really happy with how they have turned out. my partner is really happy with them too, I will definitely make them again. Julie
 
So Han's back baking again, and this week's theme was Giant Cookie Week! Now, who can resist a cookie, let alone a giant one! The only problem I had with this one is that they had to bake it on a tinfoil base which didn't bode well when you were trying to slice a piece. However, other than that, the cookie was fully baked, had multiple bright toppings across it and was enjoyed by my daughter! So mission accomplished, really.
 
This weeks school bake is to make homemade Pizza! So Han's been rustling up one of her favourite meals from scratch. Not only did she make the dough, but she also cooked the bacon, added the chicken pieces, flavoured it with garlic and added lashings of other yummy ingredients too. As you can see, the final results are mouth-watering, so much so it came home with a piece missing! Well, you can't blame her for taste testing!

So it's bread week this week at my daughter's school, and all the students had to come up with different size, shapes and flavours of what they were going to make. Now, to be honest, I thought Han would probably add some flavours or put some creative shapes together, but instead, she surprised me and came up with this! Yeah, that's right; forget the bloomer; check this Unicorn out! First of all, I have to say I love the fact that it's a break from the norm (and I'm sure no-one else...
 
Han and I have finally sat down to make the cake toppers for her birthday cake! With her being a teen this year I asked her what she would like in a cake, little did I realise we would be making a one of a kind original! It's been a long time since we have sat down making things together, so this was a nice bit of fun time for us! The first idea she came up with was to make her lifelong teddy bear dogs into sumo wrestlers; her description was for dog heads to be made onto a sumo body...
 
Well here they are ....very first hot cross buns, not sure if it's really worth all the trouble when they are so cheap in Tesco's but had to see if I could and am very happy with the look don't know about the taste yet bit hot. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
 
Well I made my brownies today, yayyyy ...first time brownie success they turned out great except I thought a little on the thin side, would of liked them a little thicker. So for my next batch, Was wondering if I increase the recipe by half how much extra time would I need to cook them...these were 20 minutes at 180c would maybe extra 10 min. do it...?

Hi people, I was on the search for bread that was nice as fresh bread but could also make nice toast because we could not eat a loaf in a day... well I have tried a few but was not happy with the toasted version ... until now ! Tried Paul Hollywood bloomer and it worked a treat a very nice high rising bread [emoji506] that toasts beautifully, it takes a little longer but just like old fashion toast. Very few ingredients, he makes it by hand but I did mine in the mixer I then put mine in a...
 
I recently made a chocolate drip cake for myself as I wanted to play about and see how they are made, it's not perfect and looks bulky, but overall it's fine for a first attempt and for me to eat. If it were for someone else, it never would have left the kitchen. 🤣 I have learned a few things whilst making it regarding how and where to pour the chocolate...start from the edge first for the drip effect and not the middle! I didn't temper the chocolate either, so it doesn't have a shiny...
