11.11.2014 Armistice Day Biscuits

I wrote this recipe for Standard Issue Magazine. They are really easy and you can make them and sell them at work, Guides, Scouts, school etc for Help for Heroes. They are really tasty too - a shortbread biscuit dipped in chocolate, and there is a picture guide of how to pipe the poppies. You

19.04.2015: Long time, No see

    Well, it feels like I have been away for a long time. And I have I suppose, at least from my site and my blog. My beautiful pooch When I set it up last year, just before the first Bake Off episode, I had the full intention of writing a blog

11/09/2014 Telegraph Article!

This is the first article I wrote about weight for The Telegraph. Try not to look at the comments at the bottom if you are anti body-shaming, as it will make you angry.

August 28th 2014: Supposition: A Hypothesis on Baked Alaska Week

Apparently, decisions regarding which products to use on the show are based

August 10th A button bursting Extra Slice: The moustachioed baker

Well, it has been a rollercoaster. Friday 8th August, 9.00pm and the first ever episode of Extra Slice aired on BBC2. Owing to the fact that I had exploding chocolate cakes, nondescript buttercream and uneven cherries (*snigger*), it was I that would run the first gauntlet. The programme is pre-recorded and quite secretive in the

August 7th 2014 (a slightly skinnier post)

Social Media. I find it quite good fun. I have always had a Facebook account (well, definition of always? since it became a mainstream thing to do. Mobile? check. Email address? check. Facebook? check.). I have one for my friends and family and one for my cakes, which you can see here www.facebook.com/CakeChemistryUK. I set

August 7th 2014

I don't know why I'm crying over cake........ So yesterday was the transmission of the first episode of The Great British Bake Off 2014. My friend sent me the online application form last October (it's very strange to read back after it has all happened) with a note saying 'you know your stuff, give it
