      Thanks Kate…when I uploaded it I thought, 'I should have tidied up a bit and got rid of all the flour before taking the photo' but now I'm not worried about it! ๐Ÿ™‚

      They really are! ๐Ÿ™‚ We used a recipe from the Tesco website which will now be our 'go to' recipe!

      They worked so well we now have orders from my mum and sister to make them one each!

      We're very proud of them so that's a big yes! ๐Ÿ™‚

      I had a sneaky taste and I have to admit, it is very nice!

      The girls certainly thought so. They were a little impatient having to wait for the icing to gluw everything together though before they could start decorating!

      It was a bit stressful at times but well worth it. We've always used a kit before but it's much more satisfying baking from scratch ๐Ÿ™‚

      It's been a great weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

    What a fun family activity!

      We had lots of fun but lots of stressful moments as well, trying to get the roof to stay on!
