The Big Cake Show, Exeter

20140318-201918.jpg

I’m very excited to have been invited to a number of events over the next month, which I will be telling you about before I go, then posting about anything interesting I find there afterwards.

The first of these is The Big Cake Show, which is being held at the Westpoint Exhibition Centre between 28th-30th March. It’s the biggest baking and cake show to ever have been held in South West England and features demonstrations from stars such as Phil Vickery, Mich Turner, Paul Hollywood and… MARY BERRY! *screams*

There are classroom style demonstrations where you can learn to perfect lots of varied skills such as scone and jam making, macaroons, cupcake and cake icing and much more. There are even special classes for kids!

To top it off, there are interactive competitions, stalls to buy some treats from, and an author’s corner where you can meet the stars and get your book signed.

Tickets are still available, and at only £12 for an adult day ticket they’re a complete bargain! Why not treat your mum for Mother’s Day?

You can visit the website here.

I can’t wait to go and hopefully will come back with lots of ideas for new and exciting bakes.

Are you going to this show or any of the others coming up?

That Was The Week That Was #15

Happy Sunday readers! What a lovely day it is 🙂 I’ve been a busy bee this week with an appearance on BBC Radio Bristol to talk about baking, updating my site and work. I had a lovely night out last night for my friend’s birthday, and today Mike and I are planning a walk with the pups and Sunday lunch somewhere nice.

Don’t forget, entries are still open for my giveaway for Cake International at the London Excel, so if you would like to be in with a chance of winning a free pair of tickets, just comment on this post with which day you’d like to go and your email address – it’s that easy!

I will soon be transferring to a self hosted site – it needs a little more work on it but it’s getting there. You can visit the site at . You can also subscribe to receive updates from this site by email.

Have a great day!!

Pet Pawtraits Competition

There’s a competition at the moment to find the best picture of a blogger with their pets and the winner wins a £200 voucher for their pet! The competition is called Pet Pawtraits and is on behalf of Animal Friends Pet Insurance.

I just HAD to enter a picture of Lola and Sherlock (unfortunately I have to be in it too but never mind!).

So here is my entry – I love this picture of the three of us! Fingers crossed…

Apologies for this post coming a little later in the day than I would have liked! It’s been kind of a busy day today… And – EXCITING – I bought a new camera today! So hopefully you might see an improvement in my photos. Fellow bloggers – any advice?

I had my first ever radio appearance about Eat Sleep Bake Repeat this week which I loved! This week I’ll be appearing on BBC Radio Bristol and again need to take something baked in… I reckon these people just want free cake! I’m planning on doing a few dry runs tomorrow.

Hope you’ve had a fab week!

That Was The Week That Was #13



Happy Sunday!

This week has been one of baking, working, abseiling (!), visiting friends and baking!

I announced my exciting competition to give away 5 free pairs of tickets to the Cake International show – if you missed this just scroll down to Friday’s post to catch up.

I’ve also been in London this weekend seeing some friends, and had a lovely time chilling out and visiting the one and only Hummingbird Bakery!

Sherlock is getting bigger and bigger by the day and we may be taking him on his first walk later!

Here’s some snaps of a great week.
