Episode 2 of Mr Baker’s Cake School is LIVE!

Hey Cake Chums and welcome back to episode 2 of Mr Baker’s Cake School.

As you may already have seen, every Friday, during the national school closures, I am going to be 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.

This week, we’re baking the perfect British scone and, if I do say so myself, they are absolutely delicious!

Since I announced the results of this week’s poll (over in my YouTube Community tab), I’ve had a few people get in touch and say that they would love a little bit of help with scones, so even if you don’t have children, you may well find the answers to some of your scone-baking dilemmas within this week’s episode.

Pay particular attention to my top three scone tips about halfway in – they really do make all of the difference!

You can watch the video right here on the blog, or why not head over to YouTube where you can catch up on last week’s episode and hit that all-important subscribe button.

If you and your family bake along with episode 2 of Mr Baker’s Cake School, then please do 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 here, Instagram 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!

Disney Pixar’s Onward Collaboration – How to Make an Ian Lightfoot Cake!

Hey Cake Chums!

I’ve got some super exciting news this week, as I have teamed up with some of your favourite cakey YouTube creators to celebrate the release of Disney Pixar’s brand new movie, Onward!

Tracey Rothwell of the Little Cherry Cake Company, Zoe Hopkinson of Zoe’s Fancy Cakes, Liz Marek of Sugar Geek Show, Charity Bell of The Lovely Baker, Corinna Maguire of Lovin’ from the Oven and myself have come together to each produce a full length video tutorial inspired by either a character or another element from the movie in the Onward Collaboration and we are really excited to share them with you all.

In my video, I’m showing you how to create an airbrushed Onward skyline cake using a quick and simply homemade stencil, before modelling an adorable Ian Lightfoot topper to adorn your cake.

As always, you can watch my video right here on the blog, or why not head over to YouTube (at this link) where you will find all of the other videos in the Onward Collaboration linked in the description below my video. And while you’re there, don’t forget to subscribe to all of our channels to keep up to date with all of our future cake-themed content!

Massive thanks to Tracey for inviting me to be part of such a fun collaboration and I hope youu enjoy checking out all of the videos!

And until next time, happy caking!

Time for a new video – Ask Me Anything…

Hey cake chums!

Have you checked out this week’s video yet?

As my planned guest had to cancel at the last minute, this week I decided to shoot my first ever Ask Me Anything video – answering real subscribers’ questions!

Yes, earlier in the week, I invited you to submit your questions via social media and you definitely didn’t disappoint! There were some pretty darn tricky questions sent in… Not to mention some real head scratchers!

To see how I got on when I tried to answer them, you can watch the video below – or why not head over to YouTube to see even more of my video content.

A massive thank you to everyone who sent in a question and apologies if I wasn’t able to answer yours this time around. If you fancy getting involved in a future Ask Me Anything, head down to the comments and ask away…

And until next time, happy caking! x
