    Love Hate Really

    I love to mix the ingredients and make the dough, batter, mix, the raw product but I hate actually baking it.  Especially cookies, constantly getting up to put a new sheet of cookies in the oven or shovelling cookies onto a cooling wrack ot cool it's all too mechanistic for...

    I started doing the odd bake here

    I can't bake, but I enjoy it.

    It has become something of a ritual to do some

    Sunday baking. I'm about to start baking an upside-down nectarine and blueberry cake. After re-discovering the recipe a couple of weeks ago I tried it out it and it was eaten up within minutes! So I'm sooooo eager to have it again today!

    I mostly love baking

    when it means that the resulting product will put a smile on somebody's face. I'm not particularly adept at it, but when Birthdays and Christmas comes around I love to try and bake cakes for the occasion. I once made a Pokemon themed birthday cake for my boyfriend for which I...
