The Show!

07:00

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!

  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.

  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 :)
