Well, I’m just about there! Everything on my list is checked off and I’ll be officially legal to sell to the public on Thursday! Oooh I am nervous and excited all at the same time (but mostly nervous!)
I’m starting as I mean to go on (hopefully!) by baking 60 pirate cupcakes on Friday!! I will post some pictures of those next week.
As I’ll be busy getting ready for those later in the week, I thought I’d make some biscuits for the people in my office this weekend to mark the occasion a little bit. They always tell me they are more than happy to be my taste testers anyway! Here they are:
Nope I’m not late for Halloween, I work in radiation safety! We monitor x-ray department staff to make sure they don’t receive to much radiation dose and we also check x-ray equipment to make sure it’s safe to use, so I thought I’d use this as my theme!
I love how the x-rayed little men have come out! These were just a gingerbread man cutter flooded with black icing. When that was dry I piped in the white ‘bones’ but had to fill in the eyes and nose with black as my white icing was a wee bit too runny!
I also forgot that the trefoil had a black dot in the middle so they stand out a bit…oops! (I must see this sign about five times a day, every day! Never mind!)
And as with anything sweet in the office, they were well received 😉
