A Weekly Slice of Something Sweet, All Content, Blog

Happy New Year from Something Sweet and Mr Baker’s Blog!

Welcome back to another issue of Something Sweet – your weekly slice of all the latest news from the world of cake.

First of all, let me begin by wishing you all a very Happy New Year for the week ahead. I almost can’t believe that 2018 was only twelve months long. Between cake projects, school, the blog and keeping up with all of your news through each issue of Something Sweet, it almost feels like too much has happened for it only to have been a year long?!

This week, in our New Year Special, I invited some of our favourite cake artists, including Corinna Maguire, Vicky Teather, Zoe Hopkinson, Shawna McGreevy, Molly Robbins, Karen Keaney, Rhianydd Webb, Isabel Tamargo and Dorothy Klerck to join me to take a look back at their highlights of 2018 and to share what they are most looking forward to in the next twelve months.

We also find out who has scooped the first ever Something Sweet Cake of the Year! Who will it be…?!

Something Sweet at Christmas…

Welcome to issue 43 of Something Sweet – the weekly online magazine from Mr Baker’s Blog that keeps you up to date with all the latest news from the world of cake.

I know we are all super busy with Christmas prep, last minute orders and generally just managing to stay on top of everything, so I’ve streamlined this issue as much as possible, but I wanted to check in with you all one last time before the big day!

In this week’s issue, I tell you what I got up to this week with Shawna McGreevy of McGreevy Cakes and Cakeheads, I have an update on last week’s hot topic – counterfeit cake goods, there is another update from the team over at the Northern Ireland Sugar Expo and the Extreme Cake Makers are back for a Christmas special!

There is a stunning FREE tutorial from Natalie Porter of Immaculate Confections, which you won’t want to miss, I share some of my favourite Christmas cakes from across the week and, of course, we crown one of them this week’s cake of the week.

Also featuring: Cakes by Carol, Danette’s Creative Corner, Hayley Wisken Cakes, Shook Up Cakes, dragéekíss and Blossom Sugar Art.
