01c284ba-ff2e-4b80-9392-7b2ea00016b3

I lacked inspiration this week. It’s getting to that point where I have done so many different things I almost just want to go back to doing some old favourites! But with still wanting to expand my skills and knowledge of different bakes I tried Marshmallow teacakes – like the Tunocks ones. I used a range of different recipes and didn’t quite the the amounts right and ended up with extra biscuits but they are still yummy so will get eaten!
