As spring is now well and truly here, we’ve had glorious sunshine, cold winds and some rain, it’s time to think about spending more time outside, once those cold winds have been replaced with warmer breezes of course, and what could be a better thing to do when the weather is sunny than go for a picnic? I’m hoping the sunshine lasts, though now I’ve written this it may not!
So for this month’s challenge I’m setting the theme of picnics Anything that you might want to take to share on a picnic is welcome, whether it’s a hearty wedge of pie or a more delicate tart, sweet or savoury, the choice is yours.
The Pastry Challenge Guidelines
The Pastry Challenge will run from the 1st to the 28th of each month with a round up posted by the hosting blog at the end of each month.
You can link up an entry made with any kind of pastry each month and feel free to join in with other blog challenges too if your entry meets their criteria.
We’d like to see entries from new blog posts only please not links to old content and you can enter more than one recipe if you like (maximum 3 per blog please).
If you want to tweet your links you can tag us on @JensFood and @unitedcakedom using the hashtag #thepastrychallenge and we will retweet all entries that we see.
We’ll also be pinning all of the entries onto our new Pinterest board too as they come in.
If you make a recipe from a book/magazine/website etc please respect copyright and do not reproduce the recipe verbatim. Instead of copying out the recipe from the book, describe it in your own words and if it’s from an online source please link to the original content.
