I like to think that I’m a pretty decent baker, I mean my cakes rise, they’re not dry and I don’t really burn things … But muffins? Jeez, I cannot for the life of me bake a decent bloody muffin! The last lot I made had the consistency of bread, looked liked cupcakes and tasted, well, pretty damn tasteless.
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 I want to try out and review them for you!! Plus I’ll be including the recipe so you can make it too if it looks delicious enough 😀
Well, it’s a thoroughly miserable October afternoon, I’ve got the heating on and I’m half watching CSI. Thinking about all the things I’ve loved this month makes me feel decidedly more cheery though, so I’m sharing my favourites with you 🙂
