Baking & Gardening Go Together...
Anyway, the biscuits are a pretty basic shortbread recipe with the only criteria being they must not be baked until too crispy as you have to make a small dent in the centre so that the viola will lay flat. I was a bit worried when the flowers were covered in sugar initially as they weren't really visible, but after an hour or so they looked just fine. And taste fine too!
I am glad the weather is not so good today though, I might actually get on with some work instead of wandering around inspecting the plants every half hour or so!
On the needles - still working on that complicated denim blue waistcoat
On the easel - still working on the two green parrots, but it should be finished today.
