Party Rings

What a fluffing mess! Biscuit dough, chilled, not bad to roll, cut and bake. 



The icing.
What a fluffing mess I made!! It's now 11.22pm and I've only just cleaned up! 
I was too ashamed to take a photo of the mess! 

My top tip would be to 
BUY THE BLOODY PARTY RINGS!! 

My next tip would be to cover the worktop with cling film when icing. Normally I do...but not tonight! Why?? It's Monday - my tired day- I made a meat n potato pie for tea - suet pastry, filling cooked yesterday, served with petit pois 


and I've faffed about with these chuffing biscuits for my class! 
They were promised, that if they won the Attendance Cup three weeks in a row ( awarded to the class with pupils in school on time ) , I would bake for them. Again! I'm such a soft touch! 

Hope they like em.
The first two I did. It all went rapidly downhill after this!! 
 70 bloody biscuits. There's about 20 uniced ones left. Might leave them bare and freeze them to make crumble for banoffi pie or something! I'm now over tired. 
 I'm off to bed!! 

Na night 
Lots of love from

    1. I have to admit, the effort was worth it when the children were ever so slightly chuffed!

  5. I think they look great. Icing sugar gets everywhere doesn't it? (I'm not helping, am I?) xx

    1. Cheers! It wasn't the icing sugar as such - it was the dribbles and puddles of glacé icing everywhere!

  7. Wish I'd been in class to enjoy those...especially the pink ones. I could not be faffed to make them myself. They are very spoilt boys and girls - I hope they were grateful? X

    1. The little darlings just tug on my old heart strings and I don't mind treating them one little bit :-)

  9. My icing is never right, either too ** runny or too ** thick. I can never gauge the correct amount of icing sugar and end up with far too much used. There's always a film of white all over the work surfaces and gooey bits on the floor ready to be stepped in. You volunteered to make biscuits? Definitely above and beyond the call of duty. I bet you licked your fingers once or twice, didn't you! Soon be there.

    1. It took me ages to get it anything near the consistency I wanted! Plus I was rushing as midnight was fast approaching!

  12. Haha I think your top tip is great, but having said that the ones you've made look really really good. Hope your class savoured every mouthful. xx
