Event details

This event has already taken place.

As part of the PrideON month, the Civil Service LGBT+ network have organised a Bake Off, so that network members, and everyone in the LGBT+ & ally community across the Civil Service can join in.

Bakealong - Rainbow roses

You don’t have to be a show stopping baker, in this bake-a-long, we will be giving you some top tips for icing your cakes/ biscuits with icing rainbow roses (can be made by all ages). If you would like to join in, login at 20:00 and have the following things already prepared and ready to go:

We will be making two types of roses. A butter cream version and a sugar paste version.

For the buttercream version, you will need:

A cupcake or biscuit A piping bag A star nozzle Cling film Butter cream in as many colours as you wish. For example, minimum of 4 for a rainbow, or you could make a non binary or trans flag. You could make your own buttercream or buy it ready made and just put colouring into it. Scissors

For the sugarpaste rainbow rose, you will need:

Ready rolled icing coloured in the colours you wish for your role A food bag (see through plastic bag) Knife

Throughout the month we will be posting pictures, recipes and ideas on our Facebook group, that you can request to join - which is also where the voting will take place (sadly Paul and Mary weren’t available!). If you don’t have Facebook, you can send over your pictures to our email.
