Welcome to Blackberry Cottage ramblings, please do leave comments.
Book - Cakes with Secret Ingredients - from aubergine to zucchini
The long awaited arrival of our book, it has been talked about a lot over the last three years, in that time I had been creating and tweaking recipes.
At the start of this year (2018) it was time to create the book. Firstly over a three month period we baked every cake around seven times, so we know that everyone works and is delicious. We had a team of fantastic taste testers who gave us valuable feedback.
After we knew that each cake worked we then commissioned our wonderful food photographer and food stylist, no kidding they took over our house for six weeks, when I say took over, they actually knew where everything was in our house better than I did.
And then started baking the cakes all again, taking a total of 12580 photos over the 6 weeks. Now that is a lot of photos.
When I thought about starting a book, I really didn’t think it was going to be such a huge task, how wrong could I be.
At least I had the support and help from some wonderful people who helped to create all my ramblings and notes, that were inevitably covered in cake mixture into some sort of recipe.
And, I am proud to say that I have employed all local people to help, it is amazing what talent is local to you when you start to look around, everyone is in about a 10 mile radius of where we live #supportlocal
So there it is, 800 cakes baked, 12580 photos, hours of reading and checking equals one cookbook with over 100 recipes, using 27 different vegetables.
Which resulted in one big tea party at the end.
We are very proud of this and hope you will all love it as much as we do.
Books are available on our website, they will be dispatched end of September £24.99 including p&p.
