The world’s biggest coffee morning

Today I had the pleasure of being involved in my office’s participation in the ‘The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’, a great fund raiser for MacMillan Cancer Support

To begin with I created the nostalgia classic ‘Top Hats’; Cadbury’s Dairy Milk, Nestle’s Smarties and marshmallows:

Not the most uniform of Top Hats but as part of the fundraiser, our office hosted the ‘The Great Adobe Bake Off’. I therefore spent most of my time baking my company’s logo into a cake as my entry 🙂 Chocolate cake with a hint of mint with dark chocolate ganache and red and white regal icing:

Hazelnut Macaroons

Another attempt at macaroons but with a new oven – not as successful as my previous batch but I will need to persevere 🙂
