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!

Have a Heart, Give a Heart...

Evening Foodies,

Hope you are having a great weekend so far! How was Valentines this year? Spend the night having takeaway with friends or did you end up out for a posh meal with your partner? Either way, it is all about the FOOD these days. I mean I am definitely not one to complain, what better way to say it...

For Valentines this year me and George (my partner) went out for a gorgeous Thai, in Sheffield, and I made him a cute cake. There has to be some perks to dating a baker and free, tasty cake MUST be one of them. 

Check it out...

You could easily add a lid to make it look more like a box of chocolates, but I just wanted to keep it simple. I cut out the fondant heart and piped red icing around the chocolates, to give the effect of a box of chocolates. You can cut more of the cake away, to make them look embedded, but for this cake - it was more about having lots of yummy cake to eat! Needless to say he was very happy.

Keep calm and eat your heart out!
