Iced Buns for Tea Time Treats

Iced Buns - not quite life sized, but not far of it.

I blogged briefly about my Iced Buns during National Baking Week last year.  I thought they were so amazing they deserved resurrecting for the Tea Time Treats Challenge this month.

I used the Paul Hollywood recipe as featured on the BBC's Great British Bake Off, I mean who wouldn't.  I am afraid though that there is nothing dainty and ladylike about these big buns. I was worried about not having the perfect kneading technique, bread making is not something I have tackled. But my worries were unfounded, they were as light as a feather and could not have baked them any better.

The next time I make these it will be without the jam and cream, that way with just the icing on the top they will be reasonably low in fat.
