Ninety wedding guests.  That’s a lot of iced biscuit. At least I’m only doing the chocolate ones.

I thought my trusty KitchenAid was going to give up under the strain (it happened to me once with a Nigella chocolate cake and a Braun Multiquick – to be fair it really was the wrong tool for the job).  It did me proud but it really was one of those ‘don’t try this at home kids’ moments and next time (?!) I will do it in two batches.

The actual icing turned into a bit of a saga involving a drive to a 24 hour Tesco, a delay to proceedings due to (my) illness and the groom having a crash course in biscuit-icing to take my place (and doing a fabulous job at it), but the less said about all that the better.

 

I’m trying to keep the food simple this week as I am baking and icing biscuits with my friend as favours for her wedding so there are a few late nights ahead.  We are going for a Biscuiteers style biscuit like these ones I made for Valentines day.

I feel like I have bitten off a bit more than I can chew though as I have some plums that need to be turned into jam before they turn to mush, we need more muesli and still need to make a lentil loaf for tonight (we’re going healthy and low fat this week – the wedding is in France and we are spending a few days there beforehand for the purpose of gorging ourselves on cheese and wine a short holiday for the boys).

Thankfully the eldest is at nursery today and the youngest is having a nap so I have a little time to make a start.

So, I ended up rushing the lentil loaf and it tasted good but the mixture was too wet so it was more dhal than loaf.  On the plus side I have three jars of plum jam, banana/hazelnut/apricot muesli, beef stock cooking in the slow cooker and bread dough rising in the fridge overnight, and a rather messy kitchen.
