The Great British Bake Off

The Great British Bake Off 2011 has been one of the greatest success stories of the year. The popularity of the TV programme has encouraged so many people to get experimenting in the kitchen and is in part responsible for the fabulous home baking revival we’ve seen in recent times. Imagine then our delight when we heared that the TV show is now recruiting new applicants for the next series, due to be aired next year.

So if you’ve got a signature cake that would blow Mary Berry’s socks off, or a tantalising loaf that would wow bread baking guru Paul Hollywood, then now’s your chance to put your skills to the test and face the ultimate baking challenge!

National Baking Week

Whisks at the ready, National Baking Week is finally here! Yes, that’s right, it’s time to roll up your sleeves, put on your pinny and get baking for Britain.

Fronted by Ruth Clemens, finalist of 2010′s Great British Bake Off and popular author of The Pink Whisk blog, National Baking Week aims to get Britain back into the kitchen. The campaign is being sponsored by some of the biggest names in the world of home baking including Billington’s, Allinson, Silver Spoon, Happy Eggs and Pyrex.

Celebrations kicked off in the capital yesterday and we were at St Pancras station to see the unveiling of this rather impressive creation.
