Anyway, as ever I entered an ambitious number of classes (fourteen I think?) and damn near finished myself off baking until 3am the night before the show.
Here are a few pictures I took along the way. Sorry about the lack of Cottontails animals - it was all a bit of a whirlwind in the kitchen and the fabric bunnies were wisely keeping out of the way.
The planning stage. Not sure what the tin of cocoa is doing there.
The makings of strawberry jam
Five chocolate brownies
Five iced biscuits (the Cottontails Bunny Biscuit recipe of course!)
Five cheese scones (second attempt, not sure what happened to the first lot but they were more like biscuits...)
Savoury quiche (about 7")
A spot of spoon-licking (think this was during the chocolate sandwich making?)
At the show... my 'Tea on the Terrace' display
(homemade jam, iced buns, elderflower cordial, cards and flower display)
The first few treacle tarts are displayed... (mine's front left)
A final note - this post isn't entirely unrelated to Cottontails business. I have decided to create and develop a proper children's cookery department, it's a passion of mine, something which excites me and brings a smile to my face, and is one of a few changes and developments coming to Cottontails. So watch this space....!
