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

I am avid Twihard Fan ....I saw the last Twilight film three times in the weekend it released at the cinema (and queued for two hours to get in!!!)....I have read all the books over and over...I even have a Trollbead twilight bracelet....I am officially a VERY sad case! I was recently asked to make a Twilight Cake for a friend of a friend. It was rather short notice and I was really busy at the time, but this is what I managed to come up with - I thought the ribbon was very Culham Family crest like, I sprayed the cake with gold edible lustre spray for a vampire "twinkling skin" effect (lustre spray being my decoration of choice at present - I can't seem to get enough of it!) and topped it with an edible picture of Jacob, Bella and Edward. Edible pictures are always a good way of creating a quick cake on a theme. At some point when I have more time, I will do a proper Twilight cake - I quite like the idea of making the meadow scene complete with sugar wolves - perhaps for the release of Eclispe in July! Well see!

That's a very dramatic cake!

You must go to see the Olympic coast - the beaches just north of Forks are IMO the most beautiful in the world. You can even hire a cabin on La Push beach (it has an ocean view from the bath!!!). And of course explore the Hoh Rain Forest.

I've only recently discovered that this magical part of the Pacific NW coast is the setting for the Twilight books - I expect more visitors go there now!

Gorgeous cake!

You should revel in your geekiness, I love a bit of Twilight. The Nay-sayers just don't realise what they're missing.

Looking forward to your meadow scene cake xxx

I love Twilight as well - am re-reading Eclipse again as I cannot wait for the movie to come out. Have booked the day off work and am going to see it at first thing that day, without hubby as he just doesn't get it!
Fabulous looking cake as well - would love to see your meadow scene cake.
Have you seen the Twilight apple cupcakes? They're amazing
