Tea Time Treats ~ March 2014

Howdy doody foodie friends! Welcome back to a brand new & shiny Tea Time Treats!

Big thanks to Karen for February’s incredible Chocolate Tea Time Treats Round Up, she had a crazy busy month and you guys came up with some incredible sounding bakes.

Please note the new rule that Karen & I need a sample of each bake before the end of the challenge. Ahem. Right Karen?!

Tea Time Treats ~March 2014

Decorative Cakes

This months challenge will certainly be a challenge for me as I’m not a natural cake decorator. I actually broke my icing bag the very first time I used it. Oops.

My inadequacies aside, I just know I’m going to be bowled over by all the Pinterest worthy pics of your bakes & cakes, but I’d be equally happy to see some more rustic entries too. And if you find yourself mastering a new skill for this challenge, do let us know all about it.

Let your imagination run away with you and decorate with different icings, glitters, sugar work, fruit, flowers, veggies(?) absolutely anything!

    I am a rustic baker but I like a challenge that involves cake, so I am IN! Yes to the new rule too, samples to be sent, email me for my address! :-)

    Fabulous – decoration is the main thing I’m trying to work on improving with my baking so this is a great excuse to try something a bit fancy. Should get lots of inspiration from the round up too!

    Congrats on your Food mag award by the way!

      Please do GG, and there’s always the rustic corner which is actually loking rather busy at the moment. Where on earth are the fancy bakers & decorators…?

    So glad to hear the stories of breaking piping bags, makes me feel so much better cos I seem to make a mess every time I use one! Will enter my no piping required cake I made last weekend. Off to write a blog post :-)

    I don’t do icing either. Not well anyway.
    So I was a bit flummoxed when I found myself offering to bake a birthday cake for my mother in law’s big birthday. Thank heaven for Bundt cakes! A posh tin can make an ordinary cake look very special!
