Amazing Day

It has been an amazing day.  It all started at 5 o,clock this morning getting everything ready and then off to the Priory at 11.00 to Watch Frances Quinn make her amazing marzipan bees my mind is working overtime on ideas for new cake decorations.  Her book Quinntessential Baking has some amazing ideas.

Then a quick dash to check in with the Abergavenny Food Festival Team before going to the Market Hall to do my demonstration with Frances.  I was very nervous but love every minute of it.

It has been an amazing day and so many people have been behind me – it will take a lot to beat today.  Thank you to Mam, for holding my hand, Libby & Millie for covering for Mam so she could be with me. Francis for letting me be her Sous Chef, Kirsty for inviting me to demonstrate at the Food Academy  but my biggest thank you is to Scott Grant Crichton for believing in me and giving me the opportunity to be a part of the Abergavenny Food Festival.

Pizzas

Hello, sorry I haven’t posted for a while but I have been in france lying next tho the pool, heaven.

So for this weeks bake I made pizzas for me and my Mam’s dinner. They where so nice!

Even though this is more cooking  rather than baking, I did make my own dough.

I had so much fun making these. Me and my Mam choose are toppings, and the pizzas where just soooo yummy.

I also made this seriously yummy tomato sauce for the pizza.

I had a bit of dough at the end so I had  ago at making a pizza calzone, which is a pizza that has a folded over dough top. It was nice but for me it was to doughy.

I love pizzas so for me this bake was perfect.

I had so much fun doing this and next time I would liIMG_5588ke to try out some different toppings.

(My toppings was pesto, mozzarella, tomatoes, ham)
