Carrot cake - What I love about this recipe is that it's healthy, but you still get to have icing. Made with whole wheat flour instead of white and substituted applesauce for the most of the oil. Didn't measure icing - just blended OJ and powdered sugar until I got the consistency I was after.
Iced Party Rings from James Morton's How Baking Works. These biscuits are my favourite and a good opportunity to show off a basic hybrid biscuit dough. This is definitely not a shortbread, but it isn’t a cookie either. If you’re not a fan of the crumbly texture of shortbread, you can use this same mix to make jammy dodgers, custard creams or empire biscuits.
These are the ones I made. Obviously I tried to melt the cake topper in the microwave, but that didn't work. So, I left it out for nights, in hot water. That worked. I picked it out. Then I held it in a sieve over the sink to drain out the water. I let it dry out by the sun, and returned. I wetted it a tiny bit, and squeezed it. There! Homemade clay! Then I died it colours. I left it dry, and moulded it into a cupcake shape. I made the bottom with my brown clay, and top thin layer of green.
The bakers who created this cupcake suggest to top it off with a plastic insect. I love this idea for a fancy bake sale during the school fair (Leuke jongens tractatie: Camouflage Cupcakes - leuk met plastic insect)
