When it was Mother's day Ellie and Stu baked me a cake.....I think it has started a tradition. Ellie decided we needed to bake something for Stu for Fathers day....Cake is good but I wanted something different so I had a look on the Tesco grocery website while I was ordering the weekly shop and they had a few great kits perfect for Fathers Day.
I bought the DC Justice League Cupcake Kit, a Star Wars Wookiee Cookie kit and some M&M's Cookie Mix.
First up we make the Wookie Cookies....These were the one's I was most excited about....Such a fun idea. You get a Chewbacca cookie cutter and nearly everything you need in the kit to make them. All you need extra is a little butter and water....
I really should read the instructions properly.....They clearly said "Dust a clean, smooth surface with plain flour. With a rolling pin, roll out the dough so that it is 5mm in thickness" I am the idiot who uses self raising flour.....lol
They went into the oven looking great and came out looking not so great....hahaha If you squint and look carefully you can still tell what they were meant to be....The thought was there....lol and they tasted absolutely amazing!
Then we made the Superhero cupcakes....Nearly everything was in the kit apart from the butter and an egg.
Usually when I make cupcakes I either overfill the cases or underfill them.....This time I got it just right. Out of the 10 cupcakes there was only one that ended up a bit wonky.
We will just not talk about the m&m Cookies.....I over baked them. The kids wolfed those down and said they were good but I like my cookies soft and chewy. hehehe
Stu was very pleased with what we baked and I was quite chuffed with my girls and myself for doing such a great job.
