This week’s post from Helen who blogs at Fuss Free Flavours is all about keeping warm at this weekend’s bonfire and firework celebrations.
Over to Helen…
Remember, remember the 5th November ….
Although Guy Fawkes or bonfire night is on the 5th November, most people celebrate it at the weekend on the following Friday or Saturday night. I once went on the London Eye on Bonfire night – you can see firework displays in all directions and I highly recommend the experience.
Now for the important thing – Bonfire Night food!
- Starting off with my easy to eat with thick gloves on sausage and bacon bonfire party buns.
- Jac from Tinned Tomatoes veggie sausage rolls can be wrapped in tinfoil and enjoyed warm while you watch the fireworks. The perfect snacks for a cold night.
- Miniature steak and kidney pies you can hold in your hand. They’re baked in a muffin tin with a deep filling of tender meat and gravy – from Sarah at Maison Cupcake.
- Foodie Quine’s bonfire bangers combine skewered sausages with pepper triangles to make edible fireworks. Great fun for the kids to make.
- If you are having a party then Grace’s simple, but so effective rocket sandwiches are sure to impress both young and old guests.
- Sticky ginger cake is a Bonfire night classic. In a twist Baking Queen has made ginger friands.
- Lisa’s toffee apple upside down cake would satisfy the sweetest of sweet teeth and would be a delight to come home too.
- Kerry’s brightly coloured firework cookies would be a fun afternoon project to make with children.
- A potted history on bonfire night, along with some fantastic bonfire cupcakes from Andrea at Made with Pink.
- If you need a healthy treat after all that sugar then Kate’s ginger and sweet potato bliss balls are a portable and easy to make treat.
