Georgous Cakes - part 15
This week I made a Treacle Star Tart and a Lemon Drizzle Traybake. Both were pretty easy to put together and both came out well. The tart required a bit of faffing about - blind baking the pastry, then painting with egg white and cooking again, but it seems it was worth it as even the gluten free pastry, which can be very delicate, kept its shape and integrity even with a very wet filling.
I look forward to seeing how they last the week.
Treacle Star Tart: This tasted more like a lemon curd tart than a treacle tart, and was actually better cold than warm. Tasted ok and lasted the week well.
Lemon Drizzle Traybake: This was a bit too wet really. Tasted good but didn't make it to the end of the week.
