Iced Fingers from the Great British Bake Off

We had our very own mini Great British Bake Off at the weekend.

Well, to be honest, it was just the 5 year old choosing a recipe and telling me to make it so he could 'judge' it (cheeky). But it was fun all the same. I may have influenced his choice of recipe every so slightly, but he didn't take much convincing to select Iced Buns. What's not to like?

They were a bit trickier than I anticipated. I've never made a brioche type dough before and I was more than a little alarmed at how sticky it was. A quick tweet to the lovely Holly and my confidence was restored though.

They may look more than a little rough around the edges (the 5 year old iced them, honest *cough*) but they tasted divine!

If you fancy trying the recipe for yourself, it's over here courtesy of Mr Paul Hollywood.

As for the final verdict from the judge himself: 

"I don't like the cream mummy, so can I just eat the icing from the bowl next time?"

  1. My family have been doing the judging thing with my baking too - blooming tv shows teaching them what to look for ;o)


Come on in, the water's lovely.
