This week I'm running a competition giveaway in conjunction with the fabulous Betty Bee Vintage. I love this blog, Betty writes about her love of everything 40's and 50's. It's full of recipes, craft ideas, beauty tips and inspirational chat so well worth a visit. Betty also writes for Guardian Life and Style and for Vintage Life Magazine.
This unique retro cake stand, hand crafted by Betty herself and a must have for displaying your french fancies, bettenburg or scones could be yours.
SIGNED 'GREAT BRITISH BAKE OFF' BOOK
Betty is also running a competition. You could win a copy of 'The Great British Bake Off Book' which I can highly recommend! It's full of all the best recipes from the series and step by step master classes for the technical challenges featured on the programme. It has also been signed by yours truly so pop over to her blog and take a look , I'll see you there x
If you fancy making the Christmas inspired Scones on the cake stand, here's the recipe.
Rub 100g Sunflower Margarine into 400g Self Raising Flour. Stir in 50g Sugar, 1 tsp Mixed Spice, Zest of 1 Orange and 100g Dried Cranberries. Now measure Juice of half an Orange and make it up to 200ml with milk.
Add the wet ingredients into the dry and mix well. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead gently to form a smooth dough. Roll out your dough to about 1" thick and cut out rounds. Brush with an egg wash. Bake at 200C for 15-20 minutes.
