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!

The Sun Has Got Its Hat On...

Afternoon Foodies,

And what a beautiful afternoon it is in Yorkshire. The sun is beaming, brightly in the sky and by gosh is it hot! I hope you guys are making the most of this sensational heat wave!

As for me, busy bee as per! This month has been a rather busy month, with exams, my birthday and some competition news to open new doors for Red Velvet Baking!

My birthday was on the 5th May - I spent the day shopping, as only I do best ;), and engaged in a little evening partying! Also, not forgetting a little fun-filled baking! I decided on making mini rainbow cupcakes, with a very sweet, white chocolate frosting....deeeeliiicccioussss!




In addition, I have some big news for you foodies!! I got threw to the next round of the Enterprise challenge!! This means I now have to write a business plan, in the hope of reaching the final presentation stage. This is very exciting!! My business will soon be getting the support it needs! Red Velvet Baking is growing!!!

Another competition is also on the cards. I am thinking of entering a couple of baking competitions to do with Eric Lanlard and BBC competing. There is always a chance and you really have to be in it to win it....so why not!

I did a little extra baking mid-month, creating a rich chocolate ganache mini cake and cute little butterfly muffins. Ridiculously indulgent, but really worth it! Check them out below!!!



 The next few months are going to be full of baking experiments, eating and hopefully summer sun! But I'll keep you updated. Exams are over now, so let the summer begin!

I'm on my CakeLoversDiet, at present, as I am jetting off to Bulgaria mid-June, but always be aware of skinny bakers - it's just not plausible! I love cake way too much for that...



Keep calm and out bake the sun...


Love, as always,
Red Velvet xo
