February | Kiss the Cook!

At Aberdeen Bake Club we’ve always found Valentine’s a little awkward, but unavoidable, so usually approach it with a good sprinkling of humour and a dash of kitsch.

That was until 2017. This year at ABC, love is well and truly in the air.

Over the last few months, we’ve had plenty to celebrate.

We’ve had one engagement:

Corinna
Congratulations to Corinna and Dicky!

A Winter Cotswolds Wedding:

Congratulations to Lara and her husband Rich!

And of course Katy’s home-baked extravaganza. ABC regular Katy decided to make these beautiful cakes for the centre pieces of the tables at her wedding, and we were so excited to hear about them in the build up to the big day. They looked absolutely stunning, and the bride and groom’s Peanut Butter, White Chocolate and Banana cake sounds AMAZING:

We challenged our bakers to make something they love, or to use an ingredient they love, and as it turns out, we nearly all love sweet bakes. Perhaps it’s because KLAXON – March is CHEESE MONTH at ABC – but our bakers definitely put their savoury bakes to one side and let their sweet tooth (teeth?!) do the talking.

It’s fair to say we all hit a wall quite early, and the fact that we were all reaching for the block of strong cheddar Katie brought to go with her Soda Bread speaks volume about how our blood sugar levels were doing.

Thankfully, it’s only ONE WEEK TIL CHEESE WEEK (have we mentioned we love cheese?), and no doubt we’ll balance out our sweet/savoury levels again. Want to know more about Cheese Month? Read last year’s event post, and then head over to Facebook to let us know if you’d like to come.
