We can’t wait to see your bakes! If you are not sure what to bake, to give you some inspiration, here are a few ideas.

The first is an amazing cake from our GREAT BLOGGERS’ BAKE-OFF judge A Jeanne in the Kitchen. There is a link below to Jeanne’s post with a step by step guide as to how she made this beautiful cake “cassata alla siciliana” (italian mascarpone cake with toasted almonds).

    1. That’s great Michelle! 🙂

      It’s completely up to you Michelle. So far bloggers have just sent us a photo which is all we asked for and we are going to feature all the photos on Sunday.

      But we mentioned in one of the posts that of course bloggers are welcome to create their own posts too. Some of the bloggers involved would want to do that naturally as they have baking blogs, whereas some of the bloggers joining in are just going to to join in the fun.
