This was the first year I’ve watched The Great British Bake-Off and found it fascinating and inspirational. It was J’s birthday in October and he wanted a Victoria sponge cake with jam and cream. I made him two cakes last year so this year I made his Victoria sponge and decided to try my hand at a Mary Berry cake!
I love the fact that my blog now covers a broader range of subjects because it means I can include posts like this! I absolutely love baking, but I really don’t do it often enough. I thought it’d be fun to find some recipes of things I want to try out and share them with you.
Last weekend was a bank holiday, I was in a baking mood and I’ve heard a lot about Tanya Burr’s cookies. I’m generally not a fan of “celebrity” products but these are cookies; giant, chocolately cookies, and I have a lovely new mixer which I need to practice using. It was a match made in Heaven!
