This past week part of Caleb’s intermediate school homework included baking for the Room 11 Hottest Homebaker.  They had to bring baking for 30, that reflected their family heritage.  We chose Belgium Slice because i make it, my mum makes it and her mum made it.  Of course i make mine gluten/dairy and egg free so we had a tag team with me and tony in the kitchen for supervising different ingredients.   He also had to write the recipe out, create a display sign and write a few paragraphs about why this entry reflected his family heritage.  The results, i’m told, are delicious.
