bake off

It has started again! Tonight’s episode was just as heartwarming as usual, but I have to say, I don’t understand the vogue for cakes in miniature. Who wants to eat a tiny cake? If I’m eating cake, I’m eating cake; don’t tease me with a mere mouthful! I did pick up some interesting ideas for cake recipes I might try this summer, though; lemon and blueberry sponge, raspberry and almond sponge, and battenberg, which I have never attempted. Now I actually have some time to experiment in the kitchen, I might just have a go! – Rachel
