Work Catering Week 4: Slices!

Skipped a week last week because there was no seminar... however..this week I'm going back to slices!!! Similar to brownies I made 3 weeks ago. I've realised slices are really easy for catering because you can make a big batch and then just cut up into the number of pieces you need =D

The Chocolate hedgehog slice was really easy to make because it required NO BAKING =D gotta love that ^^" and its chocolate! Well just in case there are some people who don't like chocolate, I also made a raspberry coconut slice :)
