Hey there readers - both old and new! The past week or so has been rather exciting to say the least! In case you haven’t heard, I’m one of the contestants on the seventh series of The Great British Bake Off! *yaaaaay* After months of secrecy, it's feels wonderful to finally be able to explain what I've  been up to!!

Since it all came out, it’s been such a whirlwind of excitement and busyness mixed  with numerous exclamations of ''no way!!'' and ‘say whaaaat?!’’ from unsuspecting friends. But there's also been an overwhelming amount of such supportive and encouraging messages which I'm so grateful for.

The first episode last week was such a joy to watch and I can’t wait for you to watch along and see all the crazy adventures we got up to in that famous tent! It really was such an amazing experience in which I gained eleven truly fabulous baker friends.

Besides Bake Off, I’ve been a busy bee in the kitchen lately and so thought I’d share a bit of what I’ve been up to. From salted chocolate tarts to my trusty layer cakes, as well trips to some fancy patisserie shops, this summer has been a great time for baking.
