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

 This weekend's baking project was a 70th birthday cake for my friend's Aunt Kath.  I had a new edible ink airbrush kit for Christmas and I finally plucked up the courage to try and understand the instructions for using it!!!  They are in 4 books!!!!  I shouldn't have worried as, despite the many instructions, it was actually very easy to use and it meant that making the requested green and white cake was easy.  I made sugar butterflies and topped the cake with a few butterflies on wires and overall the cake looked quite pretty indeed!  Now I can't wait for my next opportunities to use the copper colour ink which looks amazing and I think would make very spectacular cupcakes!!!!
