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!

Pearl Cake & Catch Up!



Evening foodies :)

Recently, business has been going from strength to strength! I am doing more and more work, interning and I am finally getting round to writing a few press releases for business promotion. Cake orders are becoming more regular and the other day I was recognised out in Sheffield - I was amazed!

I have decided to join a few more cake online forums, some American sites for ideas and trends and a few secret cake clubs, which I find extremely exciting! It is so inspiring seeing the work that others are doing and I find it helps get my creative juices flowing and motivates me to challenge myself and get on it! I am supporting a local friend with her business ideas, so watch this space and have taken on a beautiful assistant designer, Demi, to support my business progress. So if you're thinking about doing something, the time is now, lets get creative and productive!!!

As for my most recent cake order, I did a Pearl wedding anniversary cake. I challenged myself with a few new materials, such as edible paints and lustre sprays. It was a little difficult at times, but i thoroughly enjoy embracing a challenge and sometimes the most simple things, are the hardest. 4 layers of victoria sponge, jam and buttercream. Take a sneaky peak...


I also found this article very interesting and quite amusing! I am a little bit of a perfectionist, but it is true that sometimes, with edible materials, you have to be a little creative and clever with your approach!

Also, I have started taking a few brush up classes on modelling. I have bought a few more books, personal treats to myself, and think these classes will just give me a little more knowledge, as my self taught methods are fab, but you cannot refute extra knowledge! Check out my little people from last week...

In addition, I would like to introduce you little people to my cute new boyfriend, he has a right baby face!!! He took me to a beautiful restaurant, in Sheffield, for Valentines. Cannot beat Thai and if you visit Sheffield, All Siam is delicious!...I am a very lucky girl!





Keep calm and stay motivated...the time is always now!

Love, as always,


RVB
