Well, summer will be hurtling to an end pretty soon. Schools go back, in Scotland, in only a couple of weeks you know! But it’s still pretty warm out there (well, when I was typing this up it was).
And I didn’t know what to think of for a theme for August’s Treat Petite until I spoke to my baker in crime Kat. Did you see her round up of delicious Summer Treat Petite entries for July btw? Take a look.
But Kat suggested, as it is still so warm, why ask people to put on their ovens?
So the theme for August is ‘No Bake’! That’s right – no oven required. Whether it be a chilled or frozen petite dessert or one that requires nothing more than setting up in the fridge, we really want to see your no baked delights (anything microwaved or heated/boiled on the cooker is permissible though!).
Here’s those all important rules…
Treat Petite is for all of those delicious bites, which can be individually portioned. Cookies, cupcakes, brownies, macarons and so on. No cakes, puddings, loaves – you get the idea…here are those all-important rules.
