National Baking Week

Anyone that enjoys baking will have found it hard to escape the fact that it's National Baking Week this week.  To celebrate this event I have been busy doing some baking of my own.

Key Lime Pie
A special request from my parents for their 47th Wedding Anniversary. This is a favourite recipe courtesy of BBC Food, so if it takes your fancy here it is BBC Food Key Lime Pie


Normally I would drizzle dark chocolate artistically across the pie. However, this time I decided to practice my chocolate piping onto parchment paper. Once cooled I carefully transferred the chocolate onto the pie.  Looking at it now, I realise I should of also piped the word 'Wedding'- never mind, too late now!




Iced Buns
Inspired by The Great British Bake Off and also wanting to try my hand at baking something I had never made before, I was tempted by Iced Buns.   I followed the recipe as featured on the show.  Though time consuming, these were very easy to make and I can not begin to describe just how amazing they tasted.  









I also made Rock Buns and Cherry Buns, but they were not around long enough for me to photograph.

  3. Key lime pie looks amazing and I'm mighty impressed with your chocolate writing / drizzling technique. I wanted to have a go at the iced buns too after seeing the GBBO how to - there's just never enough time in the day. Yours look amazing.

  4. Oh I missed this before. What a great job you did of the piping and your iced buns look just like Paul Hollywoods, that was the one thing I really wanted to bake after GBBO as well, funny how some bakes really resonate.

  6. Happy 47th anniversary to your parents. I have to say that is (or should I write 'was') an awesome looking cake.
