I love making birthday cakes for my boys on their birthdays, they are a real labour of love because they usually do take a long time to make from start to finish. I am not complaining about this, because I enjoy seeing my idea come to life and I especially enjoy seeing the look on Burton and Jenson’s faces when they are presented with their new birthday cake each year.
So tonight saw the final of the Great British Bake Off – did your choice of Baker win? Mine did, as Nancy has been my favourite from the start so I feel very happy right now for her. Sadly, with the ending of the GBBO on the TV means the end of the Great Bloggers Bake Off for another year – what will I do with myself now?
The whole time I have hosted and taken part in my Great Bloggers Bake Off, I dont think I have ever attempted a technical bake, preferring instead to have more of a free reign to create my own take on a theme and because, quite frankly, the technical bakes are a faff!! I am not one for faff, and I do not like to follow a long recipe which is why I make my own bakes my own way!!
