#5 Learn a new skill

For this task, I decided i wanted to learn how to bake ! I’ve never really baked before as i’m not a “sweet tooth” kind of gal, but I thought for Christmas I would bake loaf cakes for people. I made eight in total, and four different kinds:

1. Yorkshire barmbrack

2. Carrot cake with mascarpone lime icing

3. Lemon Drizzle cake

4. Christmas cake (made with my Grandad)

The results came out really well ! I was very pleased, they looked so nice as presents wrapped in brown paper and string, and I had a lot of compliments about them.

I must bake more!
