    Was far too hungover to bake the entire weekend. I'm abstaining this week so hopefully I'll be baking soon. :P

    I have to say, Hooby is a very good 'pro' contender as her stuff looks very professional. Mmm swiss roll.

    Urgh look at those prizes. Better get baking, promised mum a Simnel cake. Might make some hot cross buns as well if I can be bothered working with yeast (might just get dad to knead them. )

    ...so I'm guessing we don't actually have to make Easter-themed stuff? It's not really much of an Easter competition then is it, haha.

    I'm baking on Wednesday so I'll think of something a bit interesting and take photos to enter if I get time

    Apparently not! Although weren't the Christmas ones all Christmas themed? I don't remember already!

    I thought entries needed to be dated and usernamed? Otherwise you could just submit stuff from any time. Someone clarify please

    Entries so far are awesome. I want a creme egg cupcake :coma: they're my winner so far. and they're easter themed which is what they should be imo :p:

    Yeah, mine wasn't an entry - I just wanted to show people my cookies 'cause I was proud of them! :biggrin:
    I think things should probably be easter-themed, because otherwise there's no point in it being the 'easter baking competition' is there! I too would love a creme egg cupcake - look amaaazziingggg :coma:

    Well I'm stuck as my family gobbled mine before dating and usernaming
    >__>

    The most I can do is username the background items. Well, gives an excuse to bake again? Bit miffed anyway...

    Today I made honey and granola cupcakes - which look a bit naff but taste amazing (I would seriously recommend this recipe to anyone and everyone who wants to bake something really sweet and not too unhealthy, they're a little too sweet for me actually so next time I think I'll drop a bit of the sugar out) and aren't eastery in anyway so I won't enter them... BUT when I'm done I have my eye on baking some 'hot cross cupcakes' which I shall enter into this competition

    These look really similar to the ones I made in a cupcake decorating class the other week! I had to do a double take! You didn't happen to go to a cupcake decorating class did you?
