Friday Food – Fair Baking

The plan: chocolate cake and coconut ice + maybe another cake.
The result: one burnt burnt and broken mud cake.
The inside tastes pretty good, but it’s not suitable for School Fair selling or consumption. So we get to eat it. Shame about that.

The plan (take 2, its now Friday, Fair day): Coconut and Raspberry Loaf, Chocolate Fudge Brownie cake and coconut ice. (I’m stuck on this since I decided and I will make it!)
The result: Coconut cake is cooked, with strawberries instead. Smells divine. The brownie cake is in. And the one thing I didn’t get from the supermarket is the one thing you need for coconut ice – copha!! – so a friend will pick some up for me while out. It will be made!

Coconut and Raspberry Loaf. see recipe here.
My changes were strawberries instead of raspberries, and made it a cake rather than a loaf.

flour, egg and sugar and strawberries.

I omitted the nuts as I didn’t have any and added extra chocolate.

And Coconut Ice. Rainbow Coconut Ice. See recipe here.
I doubled the recipe and didn’t quite leave it long enough as it was a little crumbly, but still looked pretty good.
way too much icing/powdered sugar, coconut with a colour selection, egg whites and melted copha

All three ready to go.

And a few shots of the school early on before the crowds turned up. All those empty spaces – full with lots of happy people with food and drinks and kids with their purchases.
There were horse rides, a jumping castle, the local fire brigade, sushi, Thai food, bbq, milkshakes made by riding a bike, and even Halloween pumpkins.
My dinner consisted of sushi, chicken satay and waffle with ice cream for dessert.
How cool is it to go to school in a place like this?
