There’s a certain Royal Wedding taking place this Saturday and I thought that my #BakeoftheWeek this week could go a little patriotic! To be honest, having a GB athlete in the house, we quite often get our Union Jacks out so they are never far away. Sadly, we won’t be at any party this Saturday. Millie will be at training down in Bristol, so I’ll be watching the wedding from the comfort of my Premier Inn room (Well, until I get booted out at 12pm!) It’s not stopped me baking Red, White & Blue treats for us to enjoy beforehand though. The girls are delighted with these Mini Strawberry Shortcakes. Every time they come into the kitchen they squeal about how cute they are!
The beauty of this Shortcake biscuits recipe is that it makes loads. You should get at least 25-30 double Strawberry Shortcakes out of them. Unless you are catering for a huge gathering, there will probably be enough to freeze some biscuits for another time.
Bake of the Week
A quieter #BakeoftheWeek for us last week – Totally unsurprising as the weather was so beautifully sunny. We still had some wonderful entries as usual to share though:
My featured Bake from last week’s entries was Curly’s Cooking who made this beautiful Raspberry & Mascarpone Layer cake for her sister’s birthday. How beautiful!
Our other entries were all fit for royalty too!
1. The perfect way to use up fruit, Coconut Hummingbird Cake from my co-host, MummyMishaps
2. Beautifully sunny & summer, Easy Rhubarb Cake from Jo’s Kitchen Larder
3. For every peanut addict, Snickers Cupcakes from The Baking Explorer
Our linky is now open for this week’s entries. Jenny will be back over at Mummy Mishaps next week with a roundup. We mention all entries with a link each week as well as sharing on Twitter, commenting, Pinterest, Stumble Upon & Facebook/G+ when possible.
