On Sept 13th 2012 my second book ‘Say It With Cake’ will be published. What better way to wow your friends and family and save money than by baking your own for special occasions? Impress your partner on Valentine’s Day with Lemon Love Heart Cookies, whip up a White Chocolate Rainbow Cake for your child’s birthday or create an amazing Macaron Tower Wedding Cake. Other inspirational recipes include Triple-layer Tiramisu Cake, Flourless Chocolate and Blackberry Cake, Salted Caramel Truffles, Easter Nest Cupcakes, Key Lime Cake, Gingerbread House and Cherry Pie. Mouthwatering and innovative recipes that look impressive but with tips on decoration, assembly, presentation, step-by-step instructions and beautiful colour photography they are simple to make and will inspire you to start baking today.

After months of hard work I’m really excited to show you all my first cookbook The Boy Who Bakes – a modern and exciting guide to baking. From the traditional to new twists on old favourites, there are recipes to suit all abilities. Covering cakes, cookies, pastry, desserts and even ice-creams, the book contains over 80 recipes, including a few which are very personal and have been handed down to me from different generations of my family. Recipes include Peaches and Cream Upside Down Cake, Chocolate Pecan and Salted Caramel Tart, Mango and Passionfruit Pavlova and the ultimate Fudge Brownies, accompanied by gorgeous, full-colour photographs to tempt you into the kitchen and get your mouth watering! Let me show you how to beat off the competition and become a brilliant baker.
