My First Cake Bake!

 Like the majority of the UK I've become utterly sucked in by the Great British Bake Off. So much so that today I decided to take the plunge and bake a cake for the first time ever!

Now I know you're probably thinking how is it that I'm in my twenties and I've only just done this? Well to be totally truthful I thought exactly the same! 

It sounds ridiculous but I've always felt a little nervous when it came to the idea of baking. When I was a kid it would always be something that my Mum and little Sister did together, so I guess I just kind of thought that type of thing wasn't really for me and that I would be a much better cake taster than baker ;) However after watching a few weeks of GBBO and reading a couple of Mary Berry's recipes I thought what the heck I'll give it a go!

So the cake... I decided to try my hand at a Victoria Sponge because they are one of my fav's and I'd read that they are pretty simple for beginners.

The recipe I used was super easy to follow and I actually found it on the BBC website written by the lovely Mary Berry herself (If you'd like to give it a go the click HERE to be taken to the site)

I thought since it was my first cake I would just stick to showing you the snaps I took whilst I was making it because it would be silly to give you a step by step guide when I merely just followed the above recipe and it would be mean to take credit for something I didn't write myself! 

I just wanted to say that I really enjoyed baking it. It was so much fun to try something different and get creative - it also actually tasted really scrummy (if i do say so myself) My lovely Grandma & Dad came over for an afternoon of board games and both scoffed 2 slices each!

I know you may be reading this and thinking this is a bit of a pointless post but I kind of want to change my blog to be somewhat of an online diary where I can document little bits and bobs of my day to day life and share stories with you lovelies of what I've been up to :)

I hope you've all had a lovely Sunday and let me know in the comments if you've been watching GBBO and if so who do you want to win?

Lots of love
