4 Years of FueltheBlog

Week Six – Tiramisu ‘bomb’ cake

Week 6 in the tent and it brought with it dessert week. Usually you can guess the sort of desserts that will be baked but not this week, or any other week currently you see they are trying to be different but it’s becoming annoying. Maybe that’s just me though… Anyway, we had a layered…

Week Two: Fig Rolls

Week two, brought us biscuit week. From chocolate bars, fig rolls and a biscuit sculpture showstopper it was an epic week. Have to say I am so so so impressed with the creativity this year. Not sure if it’s me but it seems like they have upped their game from last year and I’m enjoying…
