Yay! My copy of Mary Berry’s Baking Bible arrived today and I couldn’t wait to crack it open.
Mary Berry is the queen of cakes and I fell in love with her on The Great British Bake Off (Great British Baking Show in the states). I like GBBO because unlike the baking shows here, everything looks rustic and delicious rather than garish (as Mary would say). Watch it on Netflix to hear the accents if nothing else.
I’ve always enjoyed baking but I’ve never been particularly good at it. I think the most impressive thing I ever baked was a box cake that I shaped into a butterfly and topped with dyed coconut shavings (in fourth grade).
P.S. Let me know if you have a favorite MB recipe I should try.
