Episode 5 of Mr Baker’s Cake School is LIVE!

Hey Cake Chums and welcome back to episode 5 of Mr Baker’s Cake School.

As you have probably seen by now, every Friday, during the national school closures, I am uploading a child-friendly baking lesson (with the occasional bit of maths and more squeezed in too) to help support you and your families with your home learning.

However, please don’t think they are only suitable for children – plenty of adults have been joining in and sharing their baking results too.

This week, I thought I would share my recipe for one of my favourite biscuity bakes… deliciously spicy gingerbread men!

The perfect recipe to have in your baking arsenal, my take on gingerbread is also perfect for building traditional gingerbread houses at Christmas too, so once you have had a go at this week’s challenge, you might want to tuck this one away for later in the year too.

As you may have spotted from the thumbnail, this week’s episode also has a rather exciting extra dimension, as I am giving away a brand new Kenwood kMix stand mixer to one lucky winner and they will even get to choose the colour! Find the link to the full terms and conditions at the bottom of this post.

To find out more and to enter the competition, you can either watch the video right here on the blog, or why not head over to YouTube where you can catch up on any episodes you may have missed and hit that all-important subscribe button?

And, as always, if you and/or your family bake along with episode 5 of Mr Baker’s Cake School, then remember to share the results of your baking adventures with me over on social media – I love seeing what you are all baking at home and, you never know, your photos might just make it into next week’s video!

You can find me on Facebook hereInstagram here and on Twitter here.

Oh, and please do share feel free to share the video with any individuals or groups that you think would find it useful.

Until next time… happy caking!



DISCLAIMER: This is not a sponsored video, however I have previously worked with Kenwood producing content for their Facebook page. I was ‘paid’ in product for this work and have decided to pass the product (in the form of a kMix stand mixer) on to the winner of my giveaway… 🙂 The full competition terms and conditions can be found at this link.

Get involved in my latest GIVEAWAY – with the Global Sugar Artists Network!


Hey cake chums! And a happy Wednesday to you all!

I wanted to stop by and let you all know about the exciting giveaway I am currently running over on both my YouTube channel and IGTV at the moment…

Yup, I have teamed up with the lovely folk over at the Global Sugar Artists Network to run a very special birthday giveaway and I would love for you all to get involved.

Each kit contains three double-ended paintbrushes (six brush tips in total) in sizes #0, #00, #000, #4, #8 and #10, all of which are kept in pristine condition, thanks to their innovative breathable caps.

If that wasn’t enough, the Global Sugar Artists Network paintbrush kits also come complete with their own stunning leather pouch, meaning that you’ll be able to use them at home AND on-the-go.

My TOP TEN Christmas Gifts for Cake Decorators!

Have you been asked the dreaded question yet?

You know the one…

“So, what would you like for Christmas…?”

If you’re anything like me, then I bet your mind immediately goes blank – a complete mental block – and you can’t think of anything at all. As a result, I thought I would put together the ultimate cake decorator’s Christmas wish and that way, the next time someone asks you the dreaded question, you can get my latest video up and just shove it under their noses.

You can check out the video here (don’t forget to SUBSCRIBE!):


In this week’s video, I’m also giving away a copy of Rhianydd Webb’s debut book, Cyril’s Cake Adventure, so be sure to head to this link and get your entry in
