Your chance to taste a Great British Bake Off winner's cakes!

The trouble with watching the Great British Bake Off, you might remember, is that it is very difficult to watch all of the wonderful cakes and pies being made, seeing Mary’s smile as her eyes close with delight, and you don’t get to taste any of it!

There are two days left when you can go to Fortnum and Mason’s in London and buy a slice of delicious cake from Edd Kimber, aka The Boy Who Bakes, the winner of the first series of BBC’s GBBO as it’s lovingly referred to by its many fans.  We popped in last week and bought a slice of the chocolate cake and a salted caramel brownie (they’re made in the store with award-winning Amedei chocolate so it was hard to resist maxing out the cake purchases on chocolate-containing items).

There’s also a luscious looking lemon cake, Battenburg, Edd’s Granny’s gingerbread recipe and a few other special bakes.
Edd’s little temporary shop is part of a series of food professionals showcasing their wares at Fortnum’s.  In a few short weeks you’ll get the chance to compare his to Mr Paul Hollywood himself.  Here’s the rest of the line up:

11th February – 24th February 2013: Edd Kimber
25th February – 10th March 2013: Stacie Stewart
11th March – 24th March 2013: The Pocket Bakery
25th March – 7th April 2013: Paul Hollywood

They are all up the stairs to the left as you go in either of the Piccadilly entrances, on the first floor, and there are benches and chairs and fabulous Fortnum’s coffee and tea if you want to sit and enjoy your cake in Britain’s oldest department store.

Great Cake Places Blog

Jennifer Earle

Welcome to the Great Cake Places blog. I'm Jennifer Earle, the Content Director for Allegra Publications. I love cake. All kinds of cake. Lemon drizzle, coffee & walnut, chocolate, ginger, carrot… I love trying new cakes and baking them too. I’'m particularly obsessed with chocolate and quite partial to cheese scones, straight from the oven, spread with real butter. This job makes me a very happy girl. Please do register for access to discounts we’'ll be adding and say hi in the comments of the blog!
