So I have had clearance to use some images of my exciting meeting with Mary Berry recently, and therefore whilst everyone is really distracted with all things Jubilee, I will pop up a few pictures.
The event: Age UK (formerly Age Concern) rebranding launch.
The Place: Brasserie Blanc, Bath (very lovely and very very lovely staff)
The Photographer: kerrywho, fellow blogger (thanks for the gorgeous pics)
The Supplier: Waitrose who kindly donated all the ingredients I needed. Many thanks to them.
The Logo cake was a 12″ vanilla sponge, split and filled with jam and buttercream. The Logo was achieved using run outs. The cupcakes were the old favourite Hummingbird Bakery vanilla recipe and the toppings were vanilla buttercream with sugarpaste details and a small amount of royal icing piping. The colour scheme was carried through from the Age UK Logo. The designs were designed to show a range of skills.
Mary was very intriguing to meet and it was hard to resist pumping her for endless advice (the new Great British Bake Off series begins in July). She appeared to approve of the work however. A very memorable morning and as Kerry (the photographer) pointed out, possibly the pinicle of one’s career. This could be very true.
Finally, these lovely ladies from the local Waitrose Branch allowed me to take a picture for the blog and asked me to pass on a message: the store is currently undergoing a major refit and they ask all the customers to bear with, the pain will be worth the gain. Can’t wait.
