This week, we’re taking crafting inspiration from the new series of Great British Bake off. Every Tuesday we’re left dreaming of the creations baked up by contestants & with very few baking skills to show off, we’ve found a way to play along on our own terms! We’ve rounded up enough sweet treats to feed a small army (or just us on a Friday night!) & the best thing? No calories involved whatsoever!
So if you’re all ready, on your marks, get set… BAKE!
We’re kicking things off with a classic – the cupcake. Chocolate or Vanilla? Cherry on top or sprinkles? The choice is yours!
The first of a few biscuits we’ve rounded up & arguably one of the best! This Jam-filled treat is made from felt pieces cut into shape from downloadable templates.
The ultimate challenge – pastry! This crochet cherry pie actually looks good enough to eat (although we wouldn’t advise it!) No chance of a soggy bottom with this one!!
These treats look so simple to make! Again, made from felt shapes sewn together, they have a traditional feel & would make great christmas gifts or decorations!
A fun project using bright colours & a bit of imagination. The icing is what makes these doughnuts look so great & beads or yarn toppings finish them off perfectly!
Another colourful crochet project, the French macaroon. There are so many different patterns for these little treats online & we even stumbled across a macaroon purse – NEED!
This is one for those who would rather knit than cook – a breakfast staple, complete with butter portion! Customise how baked your pastry is by the colour of your yarn.
What’s a biscuit tin without a few custard creams? Unfortunately, it’s often tricky to stop at just one & you may say the same after trying this simple crochet pattern.
This week’s showstopper is the Cherry Bakewell! This knitting pattern doubles up as a Jam Tart & would make a perfect afternoon treat with a cup of tea!
How could we forget bread week? Even Paul Hollywood would be proud of this creation, it’s got Star Baker written all over it!
