Open gardens, baking and the Jubilee!
Monday 04th July 2022
Wow, how is it a month since the Jubilee already?
I had a busy weekend baking for local jubilee celebrations and the Hanley Swan Open Gardens, where there was a pop up café in aid of the National Garden Scheme Charities.
I baked some of my old favourites such as Biscoff Brownie, and Vanilla Cupcakes that I added Jubilee rice paper to some and made purple icing Jubilee stamps for the others.
To create the purple icing Jubilee stamps I used roll out icing that I added purple food colouring to and then I rolled out the icing to about the same thickness of a pound coin and used a Jubilee stamp to imprint the pattern onto the icing. I then used a circle cutter to cut the icing into a circle disk that could be added onto the top of the cupcakes.
These both went down well at the Open Gardens and were easy to make, which is always a bonus!
I would love to know what you all got up to over the Bank Holiday weekend on insta!
