Caroline designs some delicious biscuits

Smile! Our graphic designer, Caroline, has been at it again with her gorgeous biscuit designs – which made for a lovely surprise for the TLC team this morning.

 

TLC climbed Mount Snowdon!

Last Friday, the TLC team visited Snowdonia National Park for a challenging climb up Mount Snowdon. The team had a very early start leaving from the office at 5am Friday morning and arrived at the starting point of the ascent for the PYG track at approximately 11am. Lots of sun cream and water was needed to keep us hydrated and protected from the very hot and sunny weather, which made the climb extra challenging at times. After approximately 3.5miles of ascent, the team made it to the summit at approximately 2pm where we took a break to enjoy some lunch and admire the views. We then set off for the descent at approximately 3pm via the Miners Track and made it back to our coach at 5pm to return back to the office! Here are some pictures from the day!

Caroline treats the office to some hand-decorated biscuits

Our Graphic Designer, Caroline, was kind enough to bring in some biscuity treats for the team yesterday. Baked and hand-decorated by Caroline herself, the biscuits went down a storm in the office!

TLC complete The MacGuffin Project

   

Team TLC were put to the test at the MacGuffin Project escape rooms in Bournemouth on Friday! With only an hour to escape, both teams went head to head to complete the challenge. It was an extremely close call, with both teams escaping with less than 10 minutes to go – but it was team Jigsaw who came out on top in the end, beating team Dynamo by just 24 seconds.

A cookie-tastic bake off

TLC went all out with this bake off – creating an array of different cookies & biscuits, from a traditional German Christmas meringue cookie to a chocolate & hazelnut shortbread! It was a close call, but in the end it was Anna’s chocolate & peanut butter cookies which won overall – scoring an impressive 104/130 for taste, technical and appearance.

Our first 2019 bake off

Today we held our first bake off of 2019, this time choosing to go for savoury muffins! From bacon and cheese, to sweet potato and parmesan – everyone put their own unique twist on the muffins – but it was Anna’s leek, onion & chorizio muffins which won the overall bake-off, with a total of 65 points for taste, appearance and technical. Congratulations Anna!

TLC host a bake off!

With the Great British Bake Off final taking place this week, it was time for another TLC bake off! Opting for a traybake theme, the team baked several delights including brownies, cakes and rocky roads.

TLC brave the choppy Solent waters for a jam-packed treasure hunt

  

It’s not every Friday that you get on a high-speed rib boat, to cruise across the Solent for a treasure hunt! As part of our most recent team day out, the team were split into two groups, to go head-to-head in a jam packed treasure hunt that saw us visit several locations – including The Needles, Cowes and Hamble. After a full day at sea, the team were treated to a well-deserved slice of cake and team Edamame were crowned the winners, with an overall total of more than 500 points!
