I digress. I'm actually not here to talk about the weather; I'm here to announce this month's Baking With Spirit challenge. Last month's frugal challenge saw a good number of entries (which were also pretty tasty looking), so let's try and keep it up this month!
This month I'm asking you to bake with a light coloured spirit. By light I mean colourless, maybe light yellow. Example spirits include gin, white rum, vodka, silver tequila or schnapps. Obviously I'm flexible on your definition of a light spirit, but if you try and submit something like whisky or dark rum I won't accept it because those are clearly not light spirits. If you are confused, the Drinkaware Unit Calculator handily categorises spirits so you can see which ones are officially light coloured.
Here are the rules (find a comprehensive list here):
- Make something food-related containing a light coloured spirit.
- Write a post about it on your blog, link back to Cake Of The Week and mention Baking With Spirit.
- Email the link to me at email@example.com and include your name, your blog and the photo you want me to use in the round-up. If you tweet me @CakeOfTheWeek and/or use #bakingwithspirit I will endeavour to retweet!
- The deadline is midnight on the 28th.
Don't forget that The Food Blog Diary is a handy site where a lot of the UK blogging challenges are collated into a list. It makes it a whole lot easier to remember what to enter when!
Oooh, so much to choose from...This might take a while to decide. :)ReplyDelete
Just discovered your challenge and it sounds like fun! Made me think of a banana whipped cream I made with a dash of vanilla infused gin (http://www.theworktop.com/2013/08/banana-whipped-cream-with-strawberries-and-biscuits/), and I was wondering if I could submit old posts to this month's challenge? Thanks!ReplyDelete
Hi Tina! Old posts are no problem at all; you're welcome to enter that post. Vanilla infused gin sounds pretty good!Delete
