Biscuit Box

Bake number 2 from The Great British Bake Off episode 2 – A biscuit box.

I think if I were on The Great British Bake Off, I would be out this week.  This is my second attempt at the biscuit box the first one collapsed.  It was so bad I didn’t even want to take any photographs.  My second attempt is slightly better.  Although both bakes didn’t turn out too well the good bit is I managed to try out some new techniques such as assembling a biscuit box and glazing the windows with a sugar caramel.  I also got to use two different types of biscuit, my first attempt was with a shortbread biscuit and my second was with a gingerbread biscuit this meant I got to experience two different doughs for making biscuit boxes.

I think next time I should do something smaller and more manageable before doing a big telephone box.

But although the boxes didn’t look great the biscuits tasted yummy.
