Window Shopping Wednesday - Baking Beans

I'm always on the look-out for new baking items - I can spend hours online looking at different tools and colourings! I thought I'd start sharing them here as a bit of a weekly feature.

Hopefully it'll help me keep track of them too!

Window Shopping Wednesday

When I made the treacle tart for World Baking Day recently, I used broken up spaghetti to blind bake the tart cases as I don't have any baking beans. You can also use rice, lentils or split peas as a substitute.

World Baking Day 2013 - Treacle Tart

If you follow me on Facebook, Google+ or Twitter, you may have noticed that it was World Baking Day last Sunday.

The task this year was to "Bake Brave". The World Baking Day website listed 100 recipes of different skill levels. To take part, bakers were to be brave and pick a recipe that they had never made before.

I ended up choosing Lisa Faulkner's Treacle Tart at level 71. I love treacle tart, but I've never made one before (or pastry for that matter!)

Review - Cake Decorating Magazine

It's been a while since my last post as I've been a little busy lately! If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, you'll have seen the cupcakes I've made recently for family and friends, and also the treacle tart I made for World Baking Day on the 19th of May. I'll be posting more about the treacle tart shortly!

I've also had a design and layout update - please let me know what you think!

As I mentioned in "An Update", I've been planning on doing some review posts. I've got a few books I'd like to review, along with some equipment, but I thought that De Agostini's "Cake Decorating" magazine should be my first.

I subscribed to "Cake Decorating" around a year ago on their first publishing run. The magazine was an instant success, and De Agostini have recently started a second publishing run due to the demand.

Guest Post - What Bread Means to Me

As I mentioned in An Update, I was asked to write a "What Bread Means To Me" guest post for Sam over on Planet Bake Life. I'm very honoured to be asked to guest post on her blog!
