Dear aspiring bakers,

I am so honoured to be given the chance by SSB to host this month's Aspiring Bakers event. 

The theme for this month is ‘Fun with Fondant!’

Many people bake cakes, cupcakes and cookies. But have you ever tried to decorate them? 

Give decorating a try this month by decorating your bakes with fondant or gumpaste! 

Who can join?
Everyone! (if you do not have a blog, just send me a photo and recipe of your creation)
