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!

Uni Life Begins...

So I've moved into to my accommodation properly now. It is truly amazing! I would recommend uni to anyone and I've only been here one week! We've decided to start cooking as a flat. The idea really excites me - I'm such a child when it comes to baking and cooking. Made an Indian with my flat mate Hollie last night and I must say it was rather scrumptious. Bought the ingredients for my home made lasagne, so thinking of making a flat size portion and getting people to chip in. I'll keep you posted on my recipe - it's a gorgeous home bake to remind me of home.

In terms of my brownies - WOW. Everyone that tried them really enjoyed them, dare you to give them a try! According to some of the flat mates, such as 'Big Geordie', he "Approves how delicious my brownies are". My recipe included Thornton's fudge and smarties, for a dash of pastel colour. Scrummy or what!

Blogging at the moment, however, is proving so difficult with the slow Internet. Had to sit outside with a Wifi dongle to even have a chance of blogging, I'll keep trying though! My next blog will contain some delicious but cheap and cheerful recipes for you to try. Student life steals your pennies but I'm determined to FEAST like a queen!

Keep calm and eat a cupcake.

As always,

Jess xo
