Does that say imperfection? Yes it does. Not something you normally see in a food blog so let me explain. I love baking. I’ve enjoyed it since I was a little girl. My mum would pull a chair up to the kitchen worktop when she was baking so I could see what she was doing. I have had over 20 years of home baking experience so you think I would be perfect right? Wrong! I have a bit of a reputation for making things that are nearly perfect if only I had ‘baked it for 10 minutes longer’ or ‘actually sieved the icing sugar and not just pretend I did’.
I always share my goodies with friends and family however they do come with a disclaimer “try to avoid the hard white bits” or “don’t look to closely at the icing”. Now don’t get me wrong, not everything I do is a total disaster. This isn’t going to be a blog with pages of miss-shapen cookies and collapsed lemon drizzle cakes ( though there will be a few!). Some of the things I make are very nice and look good too but there is normally a story to tell, they never quite go to plan or look like the pictures in the books. So what I hope to do is represent the everyday baker who sometimes wants to make a perfectly cooked gooey pavlova but ends us with a rustic Eton mess.
I can’t wait to hear what you think,
