It's not over yet!

Hello, so it's been 12 days since my last blog post & the completion of my 52 week, 52 cake challenge. I'll be honest when I wrote my last post I really wasn't sure what to do next? Start a new blog, carry on writing, or just leave my 52 week history of me & my cake in cyberland for the sake of posterity? Over the last week, I've spoken to family, friends & fellow bloggers about what to do next. The conclusion I came to was that I have grown to really love writing my little blog & so will be continuing Rebecca Bakes Cakes, although I hope you'll appreciate we might be taking a few weeks off from cake!

I do love baking, but quite frankly love anything to do with food! My plan is to share with you my experiences of all things foodie. By the wonders of twitter I find that this week I have the opportunity to recipe test for a lovely lady who is putting the finishing touches to her first cook book. Exciting eh? So as well as recipe testing I thought I could, test the numerous kitchen gadgets I have (but have yet to get round to using), review cook books & local restaurants, find uses for ingredients you have lurking in the kitchen but are never quite sure what to do with, share the best & worst of the food advertising world (don't forget I am a marketer & ad watcher by trade) Hopefully, as fellow food lovers, you will find at least some of it interesting & maybe occasionally informative :-)

As a caveat, it's worth noting that I am just a run of the mill, bog standard food lover. So if you are expecting high brow critique, then this probably isn't for you. If you want an honest, everyday opinion, with the odd disaster & a dash of humour thrown in, then welcome aboard!

I'd love it if you'd stick around for a while & if you have any ideas for me, please get in touch (always fancied myself as a bit of a roving investigator!) Don't worry, I will be including the occasional cake still, but as I go on holiday in 5 weeks, there will be a temporary cake ban! Bikini fear strikes again! Till next time, Rebecca x

  2. Great plan, I'm glad you haven't given up after the 52 week cake blog as I only found blogging recently and have enjoyed reading yours. Haven't got through all your archive yet but have enjoyed what I have read.
    Good luck x

  4. Sounds like just the sort of blog I like to read. Yesterday I made the Devil's Food Cake that you made for the Nigella challenge for a colleague at work. Looking forward to us all digging in later today!
