Home Made Biscuits and Cupcakes

A few weeks ago Not On The High Street contacted me and asked if I would like a few things from the site. Of course I jumped at the chance and requested the baking bits below. I love baking but hardly ever get the chance to do so, today though I made the time to get cooking and I am really happy with the results. 

I always have issues with getting butter icing to be of a thin enough consistency to pipe however today it came out just right. I also cannot remember the last time I made biscuits, let alone shortbread, but I think these came out really well and I love the 'Home Made' stamp too. We keep chickens at my parents house and the eggs I used for these were freshly laid in our back garden so they taste great. While I am really proud of my creations I don't think I'm quite Great British Bake Off ready... yet. 

I didn't use any fancy recipes but if you want to make these too then this is the cupcake recipe and this is the shortbread biscuit one I used.

Are you a fan of baking too?
