It was the event we’ve been eagerly anticipating for weeks. The Great British Bake Off you say? Yes, that too, but today was the day of the blogger bake off at the Wilmslow Cookery School.
Travelling from all over the north west, around 30 bloggers gathered in the picturesque setting to take part in the ‘Intro to Baking Class’, hosted by master chef, Sarah. Of course, no baking event would be complete without wearing a 50’s style dress so I donned the Lindy Bop Matilda dress ready for a day of baking!
First up, we were shown how to make meringues, my favourite. Now, I should probably mention here that I’ve never attempted to make meringues (nor the chocolate tart or swiss roll that were to come for that matter), so it should come as no surprise that I hadn’t used a Kenwood kitchen mixer either. With handy tips from Sarah and a helping hand from experienced baker, Katie from Life on Vista, our meringues were sitting pretty complete with pink stripes.
Throughout the event, I had my camera and phone in my hand and was eagerly chatting away both to the fabulous bloggers on our table and on social media.
Guess I’m going to have start baking now? Especially when they’ve included a hand whisk in the goody bag too! It’s definitely inspired me! Enter girly squeal here!
One of the best parts of any blogging event has to be being able to chat with other bloggers. I finally got meet Frock Swappin’ lovely, Ally from Digital Diva and caught up with the bloomin’ gorgeous Rachel from Vintage Folly once more. Style twinning?
I got so many compliments on my polka dot dress I think it’s only fair to introduce you to the Lindy Bop Matilda dress (you can find it here) There’s now 20% off, meaning you can snaffle her up for £23.99!
