Paul sets off tomorrow, his friend Adam is collecting him and they are driving to Lands End with another of their colleagues. If you haven't got a clue about what I've been wittering on about for the last 9 months, or what is about to dominate our lives for the next 10 days - where have you been?  Paul is cycling from Lands End to John O'Groats for charity! 100 miles a day for 9 days.. 'Ride Across Britain' (RAB) has a website here, you can track his journey here and if you really want, you can sponsor him here.

Today has been all about the last little bits of prep and most importantly - biscuits.  Funny how these little last things become so important when you are trying to show someone you love them.  Can a biscuit really show a man how proud you are and how much you believe in them?  I'm not sure, but I'm trying!
Lemon biscuits - 100g sugar, 225g flour, 100g butter, zest and juice of 1 lemon, enough whisked egg to make a stiff dough.
Bake on gas 6 for 15 mins, then allow to cool
I made the icing using lemon juice instead of water, so they are lovely and zesty.  I scooped all the icing into a sandwich bag and snipped off a tiny corner to allow me to make my design.
RAB biscuits worthy of a bike hero.  I love you Paul x x


  1. Wow - good luck to Paul ... those biscuits are fantastic! How creative!

  2. mmm - lemon biscuits ... I don't know why I was surprised that you found a bike shape cutter to make themed biscuits! :)
