Hedgehog Baking Weekend!!

For those of you who don’t know, one of the societies I’ve joined at university is called Hedgehog Friendly Campus, which is a volunteer group centred around supporting the UK’s favourite mammal – hedgehogs!! For the last two weeks, alongside the FairTrade Fortnight, there’s been a hedgehog themed bake off to try and raise awareness and money for the British Hedgehog Preservation Society. Of course, I had to take part in this – not just because I love hedgehogs, but also because who doesn’t love adorable animal themed baking? Plus I was dying for an excuse to escape my desk and mountains of work and it fit in just perfectly with my eco-friendly wildlife challenge so win-win (win?).

Blogmas Day Nine – Cinnamon roll recipe!! The best thing to bake this Christmas

With all of these Christmas posts I’m doing, I thought it just wouldn’t be right if I didn’t include at least one festive recipe. That would be just embarrassing on my behalf. Now it was quite challenging trying to decide what recipe to choose from, but thankfully my flat helped me decide. I’ve always loved cinnamon rolls, and considering cinnamon is quite a Christmassy spice, I figured they would be perfect (especially since they turned out really well when I made them the first time, and my flat has been asking me to make them again). So, my Christmas recipe for all of you this year is for the most delicious cinnamon rolls in the world. Watch out Cinnabon because I think these might just be a dollop of cream cheese icing better than yours!

A week of baking adventures

The menu this week included macaroons (two different flavours), chocolate croissants, or pain au chocolat to be technically correct and a koi fish pond cake, with a jelly centre. Sounds scary and complicated? Oh believe me it was – but it was still lots of fun, so I’m going to break down each one and just share a little story of how the making went. 😊 I hope you enjoy xx
