Something Sweet – Issue 35

Hey hey, cake chums! How are we all getting on this week? Like I said a few days ago, it has reached the time of year when our schedules go a bit mad – certainly in the UK – as the biggest weekend of our cake calendar draws ever closer. But instead of looking ahead, let’s look back at what you have all been up to this week, in issue 35 of Something Sweet!

Something Sweet – Issue 36: The Cake International Preview Special

Like for many of you I’m sure, it continues to be a crazily busy time here at Mr Baker’s Blog from Mr Baker’s Cakes HQ as we count down to the WORLD’S BIGGEST CAKE SHOW, Cake International for its 25th anniversary celebration, but with so much going on across the three days of the show, it can be incredibly easy to miss something.

I thought I would see what I could do to help with that and to that end, I am happy to present the Mr Baker’s Blog guide to the perfect Cake International weekend…

Something Sweet – Issue 37: The Cake International 25 Special

After the whirlwind of excitement that was Cake International 2018, the 25th Anniversary edition, I was straight back to the coal face – in that I was back at my desk in my classroom at 7am on Monday morning and wondering how I could best begin to share the awesome experience of the weekend. I’ll admit that I was a little bit intimidated – how do you squeeze three amazing days chock full of awesomeness into only one blog post?! So rather than panic about it, I decided to tell you all about my highlights of the weekend and I hope that you will get involved and comment and share your own best bits too. After all, I couldn’t be everywhere at the weekend and I am sure that I missed loads of amazing stuff!

Something Sweet – Issue 48

You may have noticed that this week’s issue of Something Sweet has been published a little bit later than usual. There was an actual reason for this… IT’S MY BIRTHDAY!

Well… it was. On Friday. But my birthdays last for at least a weekend. In fact, I have more festivities planned for next weekend too, so actually, I think I am going to have a birthday fortnight. But anyway… Spending so much time out in the real world has had an impact on my regular writing schedule, so apologies for the delay in getting today’s issue up.

But I’ve delayed you enough… Let’s get down to business and check out issue 48 of Something Sweet – your weekly slice of all the latest news from the world of cake.
