The little blog of baking

So I have decided to start this blog as a means of documenting my transition from novice cook to expert baker of delightfully delicious breads and cakes (this is the dream anyway, we’ll have to see what actually happens!)

Inspired by the film Julie & Julia, in which Julie Powell begins a blog tracking her progress as she cooks all the recipes in Julia Child’s famous cook book, Mastering the Art of French Cooking, and the gorgeous BBC programme the Great British Bake Off, I have decided to learn how to bake.

Having bought a piping set which my boyfriend won’t stop teasing me about -“you’re never going to use it” – I am determined to actually follow through and master the art of baking.
