As the second #GBBO week swung around, we all saw the ‘amateur’ bakers *cough* Marie *cough* push their architectural skills with mighty biscuit builds. Weren’t those fortune cookies, like, the best idea ever? Since I’m taking part in #BloggersBakeAlong I had a go at constructing my own masterpiece out of Gingerbread and Shortbread. I am on my holibobs this week, so say hello to another kitchen I’ve been baking in. This one is complete with scales and everything! Since I am in Scotland, it was an obvious choice to make Shortbread pieces. Yum!
I’m not gonna lie, I did use a recipe from the side of my Plain Flour packed for the Gingerbread. It was just in the most convenient at the time! Firstly, to make a Gingerbread batter I sifted 350g plain flour, 1 tbsp Ground Ginger, 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon and I am now thinking instead of the suggested 1 tsp of Bicarbonate of Soda I’m pretty sure I actually used 1 tbsp. Whoopsie!
