The Show!

I mentioned here that I entered my local Industrial and Horticultural Show last weekend, I have been taking part for the last 3 years with varied sucess. I started entering after being asked to by a lady at my church and it has gone from there. The only problem is that the same 3 (older) women enter every category, every year and always win!

This year I entered loads of baking but I forgot to take photos of any of it except my iced biscuits, and this photo was taken after they had been rattling about in the tin for a few days:)

These won second prize. First went to an ordinary empire biscuit, modern baking does not do that well in shows like this...! I got the idea from pinterst but being lazy iced the lace with glace icing instead of royal icing. It would be much sharper in royal icing so I won't be as lazy the next time!

Another of my entries was a lemon drizzle cake that also got second. It tasted amazing and I will share the recipe here when I next make it!

Linking to some of these fab linky parties.


  1. Congrats on getting second place twice! Those biscuits look a treat, bet they tasted yum too!

    Hugs, Estelle xx

  2. Your biscuits look so tasty and very tempting. Well done on getting second prize. In the past I have noticed that, in our show, it was always the same people getting firsts, however this year we had a lot of new entrants so we had new faces winning.
    I look forward to the Lemon Drizzle cake.

    1. There were actually quite a few new faces at our show as well, hopefully next year there will be some new faces winning!

  3. Congrats on the placings, those biscuits look yummy! I'm filling out my entry form for the NZ equivelent at the moment, I haven't entered since I was a child! We have the same thing here with the same people winning all the time, but maybe I can shake them up a bit :)

  4. Love this idea! They're so pretty. Well done on the prize =) x
