So let me begin my latest blog by thanking the judges at the Made in Bury awards for nominating me as a finalist in the Retail Awards
They patiently listened to my rambling’s of the complexity of creating 2 tone coloured mermaid meringues and aqua blue & purple under the sea cheesecakes with edible sea shells..
I am a self confessed Queen of the art of details or ‘Faffing’.. I love a theme and if I can create unicorn rainbow fudge which takes 3 times longer
than normal fudge so be it.. The highlight will be the award ceremony which takes place November 23rd.
Keeping on the ‘under pressure’ theme we received a phone call 2 days later from the Cake & Bake show inviting us to create a winter themed display table of our cakes!! So picking myself up from floor.. (imagining my patisserie hero Eric Lanlard seeing my cakes as well as thousands of other cakey people) I agreed …no pressure then!
My brain whizzing, what to do? The choice is endless when it comes to design, winter colours are amazing as you can go dark & sumptuous or pretty pastel’s with whites, silver’ & golds…
So for the next few weeks will be full steam ahead creating show stopping designs. I am looking forward to seeing my own caking & baking heroes, Rosemary Shrager is an absolute legend I have followed her for years I love her no nonsense attitude and matron like approach. She reminds me of a few ladies in my own family who are dearly missed!
As for newcomer Candice Brown of Great British Bake off, a legend in the making. I watched her journey and absolutely loved her, the lipstick and towering heels and creating masterpieces in the tent in heels!! I am a big fangirl, so I will be front row and centre watching her create a school pudding favourite Cornflake Tart & Custard.
She will be demonstrating at the show on 10th Nov from 15:30
