About me

Hi,meg-2

I’m Megan – a British A-level student with a serious love of baking.

I’ve loved baking from a young age and still feel that there’s nothing better than whipping up a bake in my spare time to satisfy the sweet tooth of anyone around. If you’re craving cake, I’m your girl! Baking is a relaxing hobby, but there are times those dreaded kitchen catastrophes cause meltdowns and it just doesn’t go to plan. My hope for this blog is that I have all those disaster moments first, so you don’t have to! That way, baking can be your relaxing hobby.

In addition to plenty of home baking, my claim to fame is being the reigning champion of the Cakes vs Pies competition at Children in Need’s Carfest. I baked a 3-tier festival themed cake which was judged by Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry themselves! As y­­ou can see I was over the moon when I won …

It was a great day, but getting that cake right was not plain sailing! In fact, at one point there was total cake collapse! But in true Bake Off style I picked myself up and got there in the end.

I will be posting recipes, tutorials, hints & tips – anything baking related that takes my fancy! Please feel free to comment and suggest ideas 🙂

I look forward to baking with you soon,

Megan
