And here we are: The Great Blogger’s Bake Off Final. I missed a couple of weeks in the middle due to various members of the family being ill and time just generally evading me but I was determined to join in with the final bake.

I wimped out at bit and used a pre-mix set but that was partly because it was on offer in the shop. Still, it was Tori’s first…… Continue reading Cake bakes cakes!
