Maybe it's far from coincidence that the culmination of the beloved Great British Bake Off coincided with National Baking Week this year. Either way it provides an excuse to show off what talented bakers we have in our midst at the COOK Kitchen.
Our new graphic designer, Kendall certainly has a talent for making things pretty. This was her first go at piping so we were pretty amazed. She had been advised to tackle it only when armed with an empty squeezy ketchup bottle (a la your local cheap cafe) as apparently this is the best way to get the accuracy needed.
You use a piping bag to create a thin line round the edge of the biscuit and then squeeze the flood icing in the middle with the squeezy bottles.
Beautiful. And as a bonus they were quite delicious.
Jenny who recently started working in the Development Kitchen with Jamie and Lyndsay made us some superb cupcakes a few weeks ago (during National Cupcake Week, in fact) which featured a well-known biscuit on top. We do like our food pretty.
