Baking brings a huge amount of pleasure to the baker, the recipient, and those sharing in the sweet treats. But how can you ensure that your bakes are nutritious, delicious, and healthier for everyday baking? Simple choices can help you make the most of your baking to improve your self-confidence, sense of achievement, skill and repertoire, but at the same time ensure every bake looks impressive and tastes delicious, whilst being mindful of nutritional content.
With many people opting to follow lower fat, lower sugar, dairy-free, fat-free, wheat-free or gluten-free diets, it can be challenging to know what to bake that’s delicious and nutritious.
“It is always exciting to receive a brief for a special celebration, and Create and Craft’s Birthday was no exception. I was asked if I would be willing and available to create a special cake for the Create and Craft birthday week. It has been a busy week as we have had a four day Bank Holiday Easter Weekend, combined with my live appearance on Saturday Kitchen and the National Tea Day festival on 21st April to coincide with Her Majesty The Queen’s Birthday, where I hosted live demonstrations. But how could I refuse?” – Mich Turner
National Tea Day is on the 21st April 2017 and celebrates British tea – the nation’s favourite beverage! Now in its third year, the awareness day’s date has been selected to coincide with the Queen’s birthday. Really, it makes sense to do so! Mich Turner is known for baking for royalty; it’s recently been announced that she’ll be the lucky ambassador for National Tea Day! Mich has kindly written us blog post highlighting the importance of afternoon tea to her.
