Being an avid cake bake I am always on the look out for cake decorations and during a late night shopping trip with my mum yesterday I found the most perfect Christmas cake decorations - these cute marshmallow gingerbread men! I have 5 and can't wait for Christmas to arrive so I can bake a cake to sit them on! The question is, will we be able to bear eating them?
I just love Christmas - it is my favourite time of year. Last year with filming non stop until 18th December I really missed the run up to Christmas - all my Christmas shopping was done in one afternoon on Oxford Street when we had a few hours off from filming. So this year I am going to enjoy it twice as much! In fact, with my first Christmas purchases yesterday - perhaps the run up has already started. Is it too early for mulled wine I wonder?! Hope you all have a lovely weekend
Reaching the final of Masterchef 2007 was a rollercoaster of emotion, with huge highs and lows, but I loved every minute and learnt a huge amount. I owe a great deal to John and Gregg who had faith in my ability when I did not believe in myself. Since competing on the programme my life has changed considerably. I now write cookery columns for two magazines, give cookery demonstrations and am just working on my 13th cook book - unlucky number for some but not for me!!! I love all forms of country cooking, using seasonal and locally sourced produce. This blog is to enable me to share with you a few of my recipes and baking ideas. Enjoy Hannah xxxx
