Weekend Makes

I decided this weekend to do something other than baking for a change.
I’m pretty fond of jewellery making and tend to make sterling silver and gemstone jewellery.
So here’s the cute sterling silver, iolite and pearl charm necklace I made for myself!
I love it! 🙂


I was beyond excited to get my hands on the latest issue of Mollie Makes!
I’ve always wanted to have a go at crochet but have never got round to it!
But now I have no excuse looking at the cute little gift on the front cover!



Cambridge Bake Off

There’s a local competition inspired by the Great British Bake Off called the Cambridge Bake Off.
I entered this competition ( twitter ) not expecting to even get picked for the first round but I now find myself in the final six!
I’m very excited but equally terrified!
The first round was 100 people were shortlisted to make a two layer chocolate cake!
The array of cake on show when I dropped mine off was absolutely amazing!
Check mine out below!


I was rather excited to one of the 38 baking peeps who got through to the next round!
Which is where I found myself today, competing with 37 other lovely cake makers for one of the 6 places in the semi finals! We all baked live at the cookery school!
I nearly fell over when I found out I had got through!




Next round involves creme patissiere and fruit! Fingers crossed!
