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
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.
Lots of love from

Ah,but just think of their little faces.....ReplyDelete
Ahhhh Jane... I've missed you xxxDelete
They are so cool! xReplyDelete
I have to admit, the effort was worth it when the children were ever so slightly chuffed!Delete
Wow, that's dedication for you! well, by you actually. The pie looks scrumptious.ReplyDelete
I do keep saying I love my job!Delete
I think they look good, the boy has requested party rings for his graduation party, are you taking orders? about 320 should be fine thanks :)ReplyDelete
Sadly I read your comment about 320 party rings too late! Hope it didn't spoil his day!!!Delete
I think they look great. Icing sugar gets everywhere doesn't it? (I'm not helping, am I?) xxReplyDelete
Cheers! It wasn't the icing sugar as such - it was the dribbles and puddles of glacé icing everywhere!Delete
might have been a faff, but they look so lovely!ReplyDelete
As does that pie. Yum. Want some next time please!
I'll let you know in plenty of time! Bring a fork :-)Delete
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? XReplyDelete
One of them declared me to be the best cook ever!Delete
Above and beyond the call of duty I reckon - but very lovelyReplyDelete
The little darlings just tug on my old heart strings and I don't mind treating them one little bit :-)Delete
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.ReplyDelete
It took me ages to get it anything near the consistency I wanted! Plus I was rushing as midnight was fast approaching!Delete
Bet they tasted lovely, any way perfection is over rated.ReplyDelete
Those party rings look great - I'd buy them - I love party rings.ReplyDelete
They tasted yum, I have to admit! Not great for the waistline mind!Delete
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. xxReplyDelete
It was a blissfully quiet 5 seconds as they ate them!! They loved them!Delete
