Glasgow Baking Club Picnic – The Report

Last Wednesday we were blessed with sunshine after a couple of days of stormy showers and were able to have our first al fresco meeting!  There were only 7 of us this time which made for a more intimate gathering at one of the picnic tables in the Botanic Gardens.  It was a lovely way to spend an evening!  Sadly I was still jet lagged and had a crazy busy week (hence the super quick crustless quiches!) so was only able to spend about an hour there but managed to take plenty of pictures of course…

Kirsteen brought along her picnic basket with lashings of ginger beer and pink lemonade for us all to drink with our goodies, of which we had the perfect array of sweet and savoury.  It was a very civilised affair with white tablecloths and plenty of delicious bakes!

May also brought along lots of fillings for her scones – cream, jam, goats cheese and salmon mousse.  They were delicious!  And Shuna’s cakes served in a jar were so cute (and also delicious!)
