Thanks to all the Sheffield bakers who baked to a theme of Cakes for a Bakewell Picnic . We were honoured to be asked to do a cake demo & cake club . Look we are on the list !
5 bakers plus at least 3 guests baked for us .
Here are our cakes: Anne baked a Bakewell Thumbprint cake, based on a biscuit recipe with extra egg, 50% ground almond plus lots of lemon juice. Make holes with your thumb & pour in melted jam.
Jane made a traditional Victoria sponge with a twist. Bramble jelly filling & adding a little icing sugar & gelatin to set the cream to cope with a warm Bakewell day. One sank & one sindged ..but you would never guess it from the picture ..we are clever amateur bakers !!
Lemon, lime & orange drizzle cake from Karen, again designed to be heatproof for a hot picnic day ! Lots of juice squeezed on before icing.
Becky used fresh organic raspberries in her Raspberry Bakewell sponge & the taste was well worth it !
Amy travelled from Barnsley to join us with her Lemon meringue cake with Italian style meringue… sugar syrup & icing sugar, put on with a palette knife , finished off with a blow torch #eek ..delicious !!
