Which Flavour is Your Favourite?

"Coming from a long line of bakers & cooks, making cakes is in my blood. My grandma taught me to bake from a young age & to this day her classic Victoria Sponge is still my go to recipe. My favourite thing about baking is finding new & quirky twists to baking classics, as well as seeing what trends are up & coming. As a designer I also have a weakness for all things 'pretty', especially show stopping cakes!"
