Whisks at the ready, National Baking Week is finally here! Yes, that’s right, it’s time to roll up your sleeves, put on your pinny and get baking for Britain.
Fronted by Ruth Clemens, finalist of 2010′s Great British Bake Off and popular author of The Pink Whisk blog, National Baking Week aims to get Britain back into the kitchen. The campaign is being sponsored by some of the biggest names in the world of home baking including Billington’s, Allinson, Silver Spoon, Happy Eggs and Pyrex.
Celebrations kicked off in the capital yesterday and we were at St Pancras station to see the unveiling of this rather impressive creation.
The seven foot cake, which recreates a map of the London underground, along with several of the city’s most famous landmarks, is made from a variety of different recipes and baking techniques.
Visit the National Baking Week website to to see how this amazing cake was put together. Plus there’s a chance to win some great prizes throughout, including a Baking Mad hamper.
