Coming out of baking retirement (temporarily)

I have been busy in my kitchen over the last week – making 400+ gingerbread Christmas trees for concerts, presents and fuddles.

That may seem a lot – but when my baking business, Classy Cupcakes and Posh Patisserie, was in full flow a few years ago this was small fry around this time of the year. It has been fun this year, but I will not be baking professionally again any time soon.

Mind you, I had a great time this September preparing possibly the hardest cake I have ever made for my godson’s wedding. A huge Lego inspired cake! I had to transport it down to Sussex and I remembered that the most stressful time of any bake is the delivery…thankfully this one was OK. Phew!
