Hazelnut & Daim Biscotti #GBBOBloggers2015 – Biscuit Week


Biscuit week on Great British Bake Off is one of those ones that I always enjoy but often have disasters on – biscuits are very unforgiving. They either work brilliantly or fail completely. There doesn’t seem to be any middle ground. The three bakes this week were biscotti, Arlettes and show stopper biscuit boxes filled…… Continue reading Hazelnut & Daim Biscotti #GBBOBloggers2015 – Biscuit Week

Great Blogger’s Bake Off Week #5 – Summer Biscuit Tower


This week I very nearly didn’t make the deadline. Life took over and suddenly it was Sunday and I hadn’t touched a baking tray. Not only that but it was a Sunday where I needed to take Tori to a birthday party therefore couldn’t spend the day pottering about the kitchen. Cue a bit of…… Continue reading Great Blogger’s Bake Off Week #5 – Summer Biscuit Tower
