A/W 2014 Favourites
I’m trying something different today!
If you’re in the UK then you know that Autumn is certainly here, and with the change of season I thought it would be a good time to go through all my baking goodies and share my thoughts on what I’m loving at the moment.
Hummingbird Bakery Cake Days
I’m sure it’s no surprise for you that I love this book! Hummingbird is one of my favourite bakeries and I rarely get through a trip to London without visiting one of these shops while I’m there. The recipes are so straight forward and easy to follow meaning that the bakes turn out right (almost) every time. I also love the photography in this book. It’s bold, simple and makes all the cakes look absolutely delicious. What I love most about Cake Days though is the fact that the cakes always taste exactly like they do from the actual bakeries. I’ve had this book for almost three years and it is still the first book I turn to for inspiration.
Bit of a strange choice, I admit. Do you remember those little caramelised biscuits you got at coffee shops with your drink? Well this spread is the biscuit in a condensed form! I’m going to use my pot of spread to make some Linzer biscuits with a Biscoff filling – perfect for autumn!
Breville Hand Mixer
It may not be the most exciting thing in the world, but I love the colour on this! It’s a gorgeous mint green/pistachio colour. It has five speeds and is really light weight, so it is super easy to use. It also has a flat heel meaning that you can rest it on the base without the worry that it will topple over and throw cake batter all over your kitchen!
Cath Kidston Pinny
I was given these two tea towels for Christmas last year, and while I’ve been away at university I’m ashamed to say that they have sat at the bottom of a box in my bedroom. But I’ve now rescued them and decided to be a bit crafty with them. I have always wanted a pinny, even if they aren’t the most practical things in the world. So I stitched on a length of ribbon to each side to create my very own, ‘bespoke’ apron! These just look so cute and make me feel like baking something fabulous as soon as I put them on!
I have to own up, I am now addicted to Pinterest! I think it’s just a great place to get inspiration, not only for bakes and recipes but for all things in your life!
