I Love to Bake … National Baking Week

Weekends were spent meticulously weighing out ingredients onto my mums glass saucers from her ‘trendy’ 1970’s tea set, pretending I was in front of lights and cameras. The BBC never called for me, but my love of baking remained.

Being married with 4 children, I used to make all the normal rice crispy treats and jam tarts with my children, then my mum bought me a children’s novelty cake book and I decided to have a go.
