I hope you are enjoying the international selection of baking we have in this year’s GREAT BLOGGERS’ BAKE OFF! Scotland, France, Ireland, The Philippines, Mexico, Greece have all been featured and now we have a distinctively USA inspired cake creation for you!
Another of my friends who has started her own blog and who has been baking so she can be part of this year’s BAKE OFF is Jenna Kirkpatrick, the creator of RASPBERRY RIPPLES.
I told Jenna all about The 2021 GREAT BLOGGERS’ BAKE OFF FESTIVAL OF LOVE and explained we were asking bloggers to bake from the heart. She chose a recipe inspired by the classic American peanut butter and jelly sandwich, as a symbol of her love story with Ben, who told Jenna he was in love with her almost three years ago, after traipsing around with her like a besotted puppy for almost two years.
Ben & Jen are going back to Chicago in November, and we will miss them terribly! So we are trying to see as much of them as possible before they leave. Two weeks ago, Ben & Jen came over to spend a day with us working, and we made time to bake together, and to turn Jenna’s strawberry and peanut butter traybake into a replica of a goldfish she won when she was a child.
You can find Jenna’s post about her goldfish and how we made her peanut butter and strawberry traybake here:
You may notice from Jenna’s post that she is chuffed to bits with earning THE GREAT BLOGGERS’ BAKE OFF PET LOVE badge, which she is now displaying in the footer of her website!
I asked Jenna if she had any requests when it came to which song to feature for her bakes, and she immediately suggested “Love Song” by Taylor Swift. Nice pick J!!!
It is a whole hour until our next baking creation, but in honour of our love for animals, here we have an hour of amazing ocean moments for you!
