Well done Thomas they look gorgeous and so do you x :o))

Looks like someone has been having fun and I don't just mean Thomas. Freya always eats the Peppa Pig rice paper before they ever get onto the buns. Thomas will be wanting to bake every time he visits from now on.

Have a lovely Christmas Thomas !
I hope you enjoyed the cakes ...

I hope you have a nice time too Sandra :o)
Excuse my ignorance but who is Paul Hollywood ?

Happy christmas Thomas and Nan......hope 🎅 brings lots of 🎁 xxx

21 Dec, 2014

 

I wonder how any are left by now?!

They look very yummy indeed and are a real triumph!
I like runny icing too Thomas!

21 Dec, 2014

 

Ah!!! Just look at that happy smiling face, he looks so proud of his handiwork and quite rightly so from what I can see.
Well done Thomas you are a good boy and I'm sure Santa will have noticed, I hope you gets lots of treats and have a wonderful Christmas....
I used to love cooking days with my grandchildren Sandra and have to admit I miss them, we still have smashing times but now at 17 and 14yrs old its a case of nannie having to experience some very weird and wonderful fantasy games and films that they are both into, a lot of mickey taking on their part as often I can't tell which one is the villain and as regards the games I'm useless but we do have a laugh and at least they still like my company, lol......
Merry Christmas Thomas and of course nan and grandad...

21 Dec, 2014

 

Well done indeed - such neat buns and not a speck of flour or butter on either of you. However do you do it?

21 Dec, 2014

 

On behalf of Thomas,thank you everyone for your Christmas greetings....We had a lovely day.with a visit to Santa's Grotto in town this afternoon..most of the cakes are gone,as they were meant as a surprise for his Mummy,after a long hard day at work today..We did manage a few between us beforehand :o)
and Hywel,Paul Hollywood is a baker on TV,who does programmes with Mary Berry..I know you don't watch programmes like that..I'm a bit whacked tonight,but moments like these, are too precious to miss...How they didn't all slip off the cooling tray,whilst having his photo taken,I will never know! Lol .......just seen your comment Stera...Grandad was following us round ,clearing up,and sweeping the floor ! :o)

21 Dec, 2014

 

Lucky you - you can send him round here when he's finished!

21 Dec, 2014

 

A very Merry Christmas to you all Bloomer

21 Dec, 2014

 

They look great and it is always good to have some help. Merry Christmas Thomas and Sandra.

22 Dec, 2014

 

Well done Thomas Hollywood and Sandra Berry ;o) x

22 Dec, 2014

 

Would that I could,Sue..but he has the rest of the house to do..Lol.He doesn't cook,but very good with other households tasks..who am I, to refuse help ? :o) x

22 Dec, 2014

 

Thank you Denise..I'm sure we will..x

22 Dec, 2014

 

Lol,Terra..I might have to dye his hair,so he looks more like the Silver Fox ! I should be so lucky,to have either of them in my Kitchen :o)) x.

22 Dec, 2014

 

Ah such a grown up boy now B, and as for eating the cakes before they cool down, well think we are all the same, I know I am!! Lol. Happy Christmas to you all. x

22 Dec, 2014

 

Hi G..lovely to hear from you ..I resisted till the Icing had set..phew,got there just in time :o) A very Happy Christmas to you and your family too..xx

22 Dec, 2014

 

He looks like such a natural in the kitchen. Wow, I'm hungry just from looking at the photos. Where's my teapot? :)

22 Dec, 2014

 

Great day Bloomer have a lovely Christmas - hugs to you all xxxx

22 Dec, 2014

 

Thomas loved making them,Paul..with a little help from me..we might do something a little more adventurous another time..These were packet mixes for children..you would be welcome to drop in for a cuppa anytime :o)

22 Dec, 2014

 

Thanks Neellan..yes,a good day,and thanks for your Christmas wishes..A Happy Christmas to you and yours too :o) x

22 Dec, 2014

 

What a lovely time you both seemed to be having !
Such a joy these little ones , aren't they ? Ted had a sleep over this weekend .

22 Dec, 2014

 

Don't forget to bake some mince pies for Santa!!!!!

23 Dec, 2014

 

Oh thanks Sandra, I hope to come to UK, it's on my bucket list, just don't kick it, lol! Thanks for the invite just the same.

23 Dec, 2014

 

Magical memories,Driad.It was good fun..I hope Ted enjoyed his sleepover too..Thomas sleeps like a log here..his mum wonders what we put in his bedtime drink ! Lol x

23 Dec, 2014

 

We won't Paul..but Santa might have to open the packet first ! Lol First time I haven't made my own..Mary Berry would be appalled :o)

23 Dec, 2014

 

I bet you have a big bucket list,Paul..I might trip over mine,knowing how clumsy I am,but hopefully ,not kicking it yet ! Lol x

23 Dec, 2014

 

Well done Thomas, these look really yummy.
Don't you just love baking with the grandchildren Bloomer. Such a pleasure for both of you. Does Thomas like to taste the mixture before it goes into the baking tins? Mine do and it's a wonder there's enough mixture left to fill the tins. Lol
Emily and Phoebe like to make pink buns but the cochineal is a right pain in the hands or rather on the hands of youngsters.. I've found that strawberry milk shake powder does a good job of colouring the mixture.....

23 Dec, 2014

 

He did well for his first attempt at our house,H.bird..although he has made a few when he was at Nursery..He refrained from eating the mixture,but I took a photo of him licking the bowl out :o)I remember seeing photos of yours,baking with you..Pink isn't his colour,but we do have some blue..I haven't let him loose on that yet :o)

23 Dec, 2014

 

There is good to be said for Mrs Kipling, Bloomer!!!!!!

23 Dec, 2014

 

That makes two of us on the clumsy side Sandra. I think you and I would be like Laural and Hardy if we ever got together, LOL! I'd like to make that orange cake with you; the one you sent me the recipe for. Then we can invite some GoY friends to join us. Do you drive Sandra? How awesome would it be to tour the English Countryside??

23 Dec, 2014

 

Laurel and Hardy? That conjures up a sight to be seen..I hope you are the one with the Bowler Hat ! Lol..I drove for a very short time,Paul,but I hated it..but I'm good at driving Russell round the bend..so he says ! :o)

23 Dec, 2014

 

:)

23 Dec, 2014

 

These look yummy Thomas. Have a wonderful Christmas.

23 Dec, 2014

 

Thank you on behalf of Thomas,Klahanie..I hope you have a Happy Christmas too..no doubt you will be enjoying warm sunshine..:o)
