My Cookery Challenge

I am a 24 year old Married mother of one, to my gorgeous baby girl born September 2010. Being a stay at home Mum, apart from being run off my feet with my daughter and the housework, I still love to bake and wanted to do something a little bit different to spice up just a normal baking afternoon/weekend.

Having been inspired by The Hummingbird Bakery and their first cook book, and now spurred on by their recently released second cook book Cake Days, I decided to set myself a challenge.

Over the next year I intend on making all 100 recipes and variations in the new Cake Days cook book. I shall be making two recipes every weekend, since this is the easiest time for me to bake uninterrupted since my husband will be around to baby watch, and blogging about the creations with photos on here.

I started this challenge on the weekend just gone, 19th March 2011 and will finish the blog in a years time on 19th March 2012, hopefully as a success.

You can also follow myself and the actual Hummingbird Bakery on Facebook, just type Hummingbird into the search bar and you should be able to locate both separate pages.

  1. Really impressive stuff - I got the book recently and so far have had two absolute flops with it so looking through you doing it for almost a year is quite something. I take off my baking hat to you.

    The quantities just seem all out of whack. Have you found that at all with any of them?
