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!

Think Pink, Pink, Pink...

Birthday time is fast approaching and I'm thinking of combining my love of cake with the fashion trends of the season. Working in clothing retail has given me the heads up and in baking, we do loosely follow these seasonal patterns.

At the moment, we are in the season of hot brights and sumptuous pastels. I love both! For my Birthday I was thinking of a rich pink sponge, following the brights theme, but using pastel colourings on top to give a powerful contrast - that little extra wow factor. In addition, I recently came across some really pretty rainbow cupcakes, using pastel shades to create mini fairytale-esqe delights. 

Have you tried anything out recently, with colours or designs? If so get in touch, redvelvetbaking.gmail.com.

Furthermore, contrasting patterns are trending. Any of you tried those imprint rolling pins? I was wondering if embossed vintage style sugar toppings could look very pretty. Also, you could use sugar balls and mini sugar flowers or sugared petals to highlight detail. 

What are your opinions? Any thing you would like me to showcase?


Although, the weather has taken a turn for the worst up North, Summer is still approaching fast and ready. We need to get our flour dusted fingers at the ready, as baking is going to take Summer by storm this year.

Keep calm and get ready, this Summer we're going to heat it up.


Love as always, 

Baking mad forever<3
