You'll be pleased to know that for 2022 McVitie's are back on the biscuit trail again, only this time with a delectable share bag! Blissfuls, as they are called, will be available in your local Sainsbury's in two wonderful flavours and then from other retailers towards the end of January/February. The flavours of each biscuit consist of Belgian Milk Chocolate and then either a Caramel or Hazelnut filling. As the biscuits are marketed in a pouch and are more luxurious than daytime...
Yeah! Thanks, Bill, for introducing me to all the recent chocolate vids of Amaury because he's now doing a series on Netflix! It has to be said that Amaury is a true Master Craftsman and makes some gravity, visual and genuinely magnificent pieces of art that are all, of course, edible! Having just watched the trailer, I'm even more intrigued about where he gets his inspiration and interested to see what he can't make out of chocolate! The guy is a chocolate genius! So if you'd like to...
Yes, lovelies, remember that tonight's the night that the Great British Bake Off is back on our screens! There's a whole host of new contestants, including a detective, son of a chef, vegan, retired midwife and a software developer, to name but a few. It's even reported that one of the contestants is a resident newbie when it comes to baking after only taking it up during lockdown! However, we all know that no matter how much experience the contestants have, it's sure to be a roller...
It's been a while since I've managed to get anywhere near anything that's remotely cake-related! However, I finally managed to get out and about over the weekend and had the pleasure of meeting Debbie Cox, who was hosting a demonstration on wafer flowers. As I've never used wafer paper before, it was interesting to see how easy it was to use and what you can actually make with it. I even discovered you can fry it! Debbie has a lovely sense of humour and was really kind in answering all my...
Did you know that today is not only a national cupcake day, but it's of the chocolate variety! Yes, that's right, today we get to celebrate our two favourite things, chocolate and cake, all in one go. So with that being said, the best way to celebrate it is to make a batch of delicious Chocolate Cupcakes, right? The answer to that question is clearly Yes! So if you're feeling inspired then try out this step by step tutorial showing you how...

Calling all chocaholics, move over Jammie and make room for some Choccie! Yeah, that's right, for all you chocolate lovers out there, behold the mighty Jammie Dodger has now got a beautiful chocolate counterpart that's hitting our shelves! Available in both Tesco and Sainsbury's, these new flavoured biscuits are a way for Burton's to keep up with the British trends and help keep those hunger pangs at bay! So the next time you have a cuppa, be sure to grab a pack and share them with...
I recently came across the Wu Pao-Chun Bakery by accident from a picture one of our long term members posted. It was a humorous post showing bread buns framed in a lifted T-shirt and Jeans packet. Having never seen anything like it before, I went on a little bit of a hunt to find out more about this humorous baker and came across a story that intrigued me. You see, the master behind the curtain who is pretty much an Olympian in his field is actually allergic to flour! So I ask myself, why...
