Over the weekend it was my boyfriend's mum's birthday. I really enjoy baking, and since I was diagnosed with coeliac disease and started eating gluten free I have loved the challenge of trying to create gluten free bakes which taste as good as their gluten filled counterparts! So after watching an episode of The Great British Bakeoff (my current TV love). I donned my apron and decided I would bake a 4 layer birthday cake complete with mini fondant icing figurines of their two border collies (all gluten free of course!). Four flat as a pancake sponges later I was not feeling quite so confident, but after a lot of patience and perseverance it all turned out perfect in the end and I was super chuffed with the result.
I really enjoyed making it, and it went down well with everyone at the Birthday BBQ! :) I would love to go to a cake decorating class, I find baking really relaxing and enjoyable.
Next up - A formula 1 car for my boyfriends birthday - uh oh!
Hope you have a lovely week, and let me know if you would like to see more of my gluten free bakes :)
