Responding to ‘Breaking Down a Decorated Cake’

There's a post out on a blog entitled 'Breaking Down a Decorated Cake'. Maybe you've read it. Maybe you agree with it. If you haven't, the premise of the post is guiding the readers through making a cake decorated with fondant. Sounds great and normal! Except this post wouldn't have been written if it hadn't… Continue reading Responding to ‘Breaking Down a Decorated Cake’

Today; Ella Woodward, Jasmine and Melissa Hemsley, Madeleine Shaw, Joe Wicks. These names are the hottest people in the cookbook industry.
