Inspired by friends and family loving my baking or should I say eating my disasters this blog has started slowly . These are my adventures, baking disasters and memories as I plan to get the year printed at the end so I can at least say I wrote a book even if only I look at it! You can contact me at cakeboule at gmail dot com if you want to drop me a line.

I believe there should have been a health warning for the Great British Bake Off (GBBO) 2011 which seems to have turned me into a baking demon! If you had told me six months ago I would be weighing my egg whites I would have laughed. I would love to have the nerve and confidence to apply for the Great British Bake off 3 but I need far more practise as apart from using my Mary Berry bible I have led a very sheltered baking life so far (lemon drizzle cake is my staple cake I can do with perfect results) but now I am making layer cakes after just 6 months!
I see my blog as a way of combining a love of baking, meeting new people, shopping and sharing ideas with others. I’d love to hear from you all – well anyone in fact would be good as when you start blogging you feel as if you are talking to yourself and in my job I do that all day long anyway!
Love: sparkly things ( I am a real magpie), reading, anything VW and have made a gingerbread version. Laughing at my disasters (after crying of course). Being inspired by my Son’s interest in cooking - his Foccacia is awesome. Anything vintage and looking and drooling at others blog posts. Mini cakes or things on sticks cause me to have mini meltdown of excitement
Hate: boring shows like X factor, snoring, whiners, not having enough time to bake and doubting myself sometimes.
