The year that was baked 2010
Because this is the begining of my blogging, I thought I'd back-track through all the baking highlights and lowlights I had last year.
So what happening in baking?
Cupcakes continued to be popular, brownie slices went nowhere, the macaron was crowned queen (I like the think of her as a girl) and well desserts, lets just say the mention of "egg" doesn't bring up thoughts of the chocolate easter variety any longer, it's all about "THAT" snow-egg.
Pierre Roelofs continued his dessert evenings at Cafe Rosamond, the "snickers" dessert was devoured and the women of the CWA continued to knock out knock-outs.
On the home front I made loads and loads and loads of cupcakes too, they are easy and appreciated by young ones who can help in the decorating. I'm rather partial to the Women's Weekly recipe card box "Patty Cake" recipe and I use an American recipe for chocolate. What are your favourite cupcake recipes.
I also continued to make biscotti, shortbread, chocolate tarts etc etc. These seem to be my staples.
I also invented a delicious chocolate and hazlenut swirl biscuit, but I'll do a post on biscuits which includes recipes later.
So here's a little slide show of my favourites
