It’s actually quite a relief that this is the penultimate week of the Great British Bake Off! I have loved doing all the technical challenges and trying things I wouldn’t normally have had a go at, but I’m also looking forward to doing some of my own baking too. I love patisserie but rarely attempt any as it really is very time consuming. We are away this weekend, so I volunteered to bring dessert – perfect excuse to give this a go!

This week has been super busy as it was Emily’s 4th Birthday on Sunday, so all my baking energy went into creating a crazy rainbow coloured unicorn cake for her! This was a bit of a last minute decision to make it for dinner on Monday night as Em was coming to stay for the night, so a great opportunity to make it together and then eat it for dinner.

We were all away together on a family holiday last week and managed to watch the GBBO together for the first time in a long time! I don’t think any of us were particularly keen to make these having seen the curd cheese being made, but when we looked at the recipe it actually sounded pretty good. So on Sunday afternoon Emily and I had a go at making them. Click here to see how we got on.

I haven’t made white rolls for ages so I was happy to give the technical challenge a go this week (although some of the showstoppers looked amazing so I might have to scoring bread soon!). Click here to keep reading.
