I'm a software engineer and my boss launched a "fun" competition last week to name our latest software project. The software's purpose is the log our time and ensure we're following the software development process. My suggestion was PANDA which along with standing for Process and
Analysis / Projects and
Assessment and all sorts of other things, will mean I can design some really cool logos
Anyway, my boss also told us that canvasing for votes was not allowed, but I thought I'd be a bit naughty (and luckily he saw the funny side) and bake some biscuits with a subliminal message just before voting day...If you too would like to make Panda biscuits:
Firstly I had to make a bear shaped cookie cutter. This is far easier than it sounds, as I just knocked a Santa Claus cutter I never use about with a rolling pin and some jewellery pliers until it roughly resembled a bear's head!
Secondly, I made the biscuit mix using my Mum's easter biscuit recipe:
1/2lb Castor sugar
A few drops of oil of Cassia (Mixed spice is a good alternative)
Then I cut lots of bears from the rolled out mix and baked them for ~15 minutes at 160 degrees Celsius.
The icing was a combination of white royal icing (1 beaten egg white + 240g icing sugar) and pre-rolled black icing from Dr. Oetker.
