    Last weekend of hockey for the season, and I've not baked (my team might lynch me!) as I'm in the middle of making a crochet bunny rabbit...

    Edit: now that the crochet bunny rabbit has been given to its new owner I can post a pic

    There were about 75 of us in total.
    The pies and cake were all cooked in the same size tins - this is what 4 kg cake looks like...

    All the cake went first sitting! And then we had about 2.5 quiches and half a pie left over, but that got eaten on the Sunday afternoon/evening when all the leftovers get laid out before everyone goes home.

    It continues... Not quite baking, but satisfied 60 odd teenagers on Saturday - fridge cake made with shortbread, mars bars, chocolate and marshmallows. Picture shows one of two being cut up.

    Proper cake this time - upside down peach cake.

    And one of my fellow cooks made some chocolate cheesecakes.

    I'm trying to work out whether I can introduce cakes to men's hockey.... I'm not sure. I have decreed anyone playing Pokemon during post match is an automatic £5 fine!

    Everyone likes cake. But perhaps with mens hockey it's easier to do loaves or squares of something, rather than cupcakes :D

    More brownie experiments, this time with mint oreos and different sugars. Gone down very well at work.

    Feeding 2 teams tomorrow. 30 oreo cupcakes done. The girls will be playing oreo roulette - there are 3 different flavoured oreos tucked into these cupcakes (one oreo per cupcake, that is).
