Mix it, roll it, bake it, put all your love in it - Cake... such a simple thing that brings so much happiness and appreciation to others. Here I'll post you my favourite recipes, baking tips, and photos of my cakes for you all to drool over. I hope that you will be inspired to try some of my recipes yourself.
As expected most of my Christmas presents this year were baking related. The new "Great British Bake Off Showstoppers" recipe book was amongst them, so I decided to try my hand at the technical "Eight Stranded Plaited Loaf" challenge from Season 3. For only my second attempt at a loaf of bread ever, I think it turned out all right! It made me wonder how could some of the contestants have messed it up... but then I thought if I had been being filmed whilst trying to make this, knowing that Paul Hollywood would be ripping it to shreds at any second I bet that I would have messed it up too!
