Mini British Bake Off

Bex and I rather like to watch the British Bake Off series on the BBC. So after watching it on Tuesday both Bex and Oscar decided at the weekend to have a mini British Bake Off.  Armed with baking books to go up to bed with they decided on what they would be making.

Oscar decided on Meringue Critters and Bex decided on Iced Sprinkled Cookies.
So let  ‘ The Bake Off’ begin!

Oscar gets to grips with perfecting whisking egg whites.
Bex gets on with creaming the butter and sugar.
Getting the egg white and sugar to be ‘stiff and glossy’ takes longer than expected and the piping is a bit tricky!
Bex gets her dough into a soft ball.
Does ‘Mary’ usually do the tidying up???
Out of the oven. I know what ‘Paul’ would say “Slightly to higher oven temperture for those meringues!!!

The decorating can be the icing on the biscuit/meringue!!!

Baking time is up!!!
Looking good!!!

‘Mary’ and ‘Paul’ take a close look! But what are they thinking? Of course it has to be a Tie.
Fantastic baking from Bex and Oz.

Now to enjoy some of these goodies with a Cuppa!!!

By the way ‘Mary’ and ‘Paul’ are acted out me and my husband!!!
