New Video Alert – Unboxing the NEW Kenwood Pastels Collection

I completely forgot to post this on Sunday… but at the weekend, I was finally able to unbox a very exciting package that I received from Kenwood recently – the NEW Kenwood Pastels Collection!

In case you haven’t been keeping up with the latest Kenwood releases, they recently announced some new arrivals to the kMix family, including the kMix Editions collection, available in Sage Green and Juniper Blue and the kMix Pastels collection, available in Baby Pink and Baby Blue.

You can probably guess which colour I have been clamouring after, so I was truly excited to finally get my hands on one of the new Kenwood Pastels Collection mixers last week! And obviously, I saved the unboxing until I was able to do it with all of you over on my YouTube channel…

You can of course watch the video right here on Mr Baker’s Cakes: The Blog, but if you’d prefer to watch it in its natural ‘habitat’ over on YouTube, you can head to the following link: Unboxing the new Kenwood kMix Pastels Collection.

Oh, and also while you’re there, don’t forget, you only have two more days to get your entries in for my Jane’s Patisserie recipe book giveaway, so if you haven’t already entered, check out this video too: Tried and Tested: Jane’s Patisserie Recipe Book Review and GIVEAWAY. In some rather exciting news, I might have had the books signed for you too…!

What’s that…? Why is Jane of Jane’s Patisserie in the Mr Baker’s Cakes kitchen? I’m afraid you’ll have to wait to know exactly what we’re up to, but if you stay tuned to both my Instagram Stories and Jane’s, you might be able to spot a few clues…

But for now – until next time, happy caking… x

New Video Alert – Tried and Tested: Jane’s Patisserie Recipe Book

I’m sure you’ve heard the news… The Jane’s Patisserie Recipe Book is finally here, so naturally, we have to put it to the test in the Mr Baker’s Cakes kitchen.

I’ll be honest, there are so many recipes in Jane’s book that I couldn’t even begin to choose which one I was going to tackle. I ended up putting up a poll over on Instagram and I had so many responses! It seems that I wasn’t the only one looking forward to getting stuck in to some of these recipes.

I very nearly decided to take on Jane’s recipe for cinnamon rolls (one of my absolute favourites), but then someone suggested I should attempt the book’s cover star recipe, which seemed like the logical choice. If nothing else, I should be able to get some great photos – as long as it turns out ok. So yes, in this week’s video, I’ll be having a go at the recipe for Jane’s Patisserie’s Salted Caramel Cake!

But that’s not all… I’ve also picked up two extra copies of the book which I will be giving away to two lucky subscribers. Stay tuned until the end of the video to find out how YOU can win…

You can of course watch the video right here on Mr Baker’s Cakes: The Blog, but if you’d prefer to watch it in its natural ‘habitat’ over on YouTube, you can head to the following link: Tried and Tested: Jane’s Patisserie Recipe Book.

You will also need to watch over on YouTube if you want to enter my giveaway.

New Video Alert: Decorate a Cake With Me and Life Update!

Come and decorate a cake with me, #cakechums!

As part of my new regular posting schedule, I will also be letting you know when my latest YouTube videos go live – which today’s has just done, if that was not clear… 😉

It had been a while since we have had a regular (non-live) upload, so this week, I thought I would invite you all to decorate a cake with me. While we’re there, we can also have a bit of a catch up about what’s been keeping me so busy over the last few weeks – including the end of term, deadlines, food festivals, live demonstrations, collaborations, floods and more!

You can of course watch the video right here on Mr Baker’s Cakes: The Blog, but if you’d prefer to watch it in its natural ‘habitat’ over on YouTube, you can head to the following link: Decorate a Cake With Me | Life Update | London Floods | Foodies Festival | New Chums | End of Term.

(You will also need to watch over on YouTube if you want to be able to access all of the links I have added to the video description as mentioned on screen.)
