Just a quick update to explain my huge absence from the blog over the past few months.
Following a painfully long and intense battle with illness, my family and I sadly lost our beloved Yaya, the most wonderful grandfather that there ever was.
I had unfortunately already been losing my baking mojo and, as my Yaya was one of my favourite cake testers, I have since been unable to take myself back into the kitchen.
However, with the new series of the Great British Bake Off, I have no excuse to get back to it, especially as his favourite cherry cake was a Mary Berry classic!!
So, in a lasting promise to my handsome Yaya, I hereby announce my sleeves rolled up and the pinny back on!
