A delightful journey into the world of Star Wars

To be honest, I´m not completely sure. Actually, we were first going to make a Gollum from Lord Of The Rings, but on the day we decided that was just mad, impossible to construct. Also we didn´t have any food coloring that suited Gollum´s sickly skin tone. But we figured Jabba was crazy enough.

We were really looking forward to meeting up for this, we both like star Wars and Lotr and stuff, we´ve had it planned since the beginning of April.

Both options were my idea though. The actual baking was eventful.

I suppose technically speaking it belongs to science fiction but sci-fi has a lot in common with fantasy, right? Hopefully that´s fine.

Recipe

The original recipe had eggs instead of butter HOWEVER we couldn´t find them- I thought they´d been used the night before in an omelette. Turns out they were right in front of me the whole time.

Ingredients:

  • 240 gr flour
  • 65 ml milk
  • 140 gr sugar
  • 200 gr butter
  • 1 sachet of baking powder
  • 1 lemon grating
  • sugar, water and food coloring for the icing.
  • wee goggly eyes for decoration

Method of Preparation

  1. The preparation itself was unbelievably easy, all it said was to mix everything in a bowl and put in the oven for an hour.
  2. We somehow managed to mess up though.
  3. Our mixture before going in the oven looked like apple crumble- to be fair if we´d been making a crumble that was exactly what it should´ve looked like- and after 40 minutes (therefore directly disobeying a clear order) it resembled a massive cookie.
  4. I suppose the fact we only had half the butter didn´t help.
  5. The flavor though… oh it got my heart racing. It was heavenly.
  6. Perhaps a bit too sweet, delicious nonetheless.
  7. We seem to have misplaced the piece of paper where we wrote down the page were we got the recipe from, so we better just put down it´s a family recipe.
  8. We didn´t have all the ingredients but we managed to do what we had come to do anyway. We weren´t going to let “no” eggs and not enough butter stop us! We ploughed on recklessly.The end result was peculiar.
  9. Overall, I spent a thoroughly enjoyable morning with my good friend Dani (Bow).
  10. We were chatting while we baked (and cleaned up!)so it was a laugh. Also we filmed everything, so I´m looking forward to editing everything and making a video similar to cooking shows.
  11. We seem to have misplaced the piece of paper where we wrote down the page were we got the recipe from, so we better just put down it´s a family recipe.

It was good fun .Again, this is what it should´ve looked like.
