Tiers of the Cake

A tasty slice of inspiration...

Hello foodies,

A huge warm welcome to Red Velvet Baking, the blog! I have been baking since I can remember and I have always wanted to share my experiences and tasty flair beyond the walls of my own home. In summer 2011 I launched this little blog. I blog as a celebration of my achievements and dedication to my culinary passion, alongside an overflow of my enthusiasm, with a few added delicious recipe ideas. Pictures and tips galore, sure enough to sink your teeth right into and to get your mouth watering. Delicious beautiful baking can put a smile on anyones face.

Summer 2013 saw me train for a month at Leiths, gaining a distinction in practical cookery and last summer I ran a culinary arts course in the USA, specialising in baking.

I am now back in the UK, writing for my blog from sunny Yorkshire. 2015 is going to be a big year for Red Velvet Baking, so keep posted!

Keep calm, enjoy and most importantly BAKE!

Well hello there baking bloggers! I guess i am kind of new to this blogging thing, but thought I'd give it a go - share my kitchen wonders with you guys!! I've always been interested in all kinds of baking, ever since i was little and baking fairy cakes and chocolate sponges with my nan. My favourite baking experience was always pouring melted galaxy chocolate over a rich chocolate brown, freshly baked sponge (made by my good old nan :)). As I've grown up, I've always been given freedom in my home kitchen, to experiment and create all kinds of wonderful and delicious things. When i was about 10 i remember my dad teaching me how to make bacon and spring onion omelette's - so simple, yet so delicious. Once I'd started being more adventurous, I guess i couldn't stop and I'm still going today! Every day brings a new challenge, but with baking it's always a challenge i accept. My motto is - you can always turn a disaster into something beautiful, no matter how much of a mess you make following a recipe or a plan, there's always something tasty hidden in there. Experimenting is the key to amazing things in baking, there's always something new to be created.

So go get baking, silly :)
