Last week I got an exciting text from Katie who is the president of my WI group, asking me if I wanted to be interviewed by radio 4 for a feature on baking, how could I say no?! They were wanting to do a feature on the cost of baking and whether baking a cake at home is any cheaper than buying shop bought. In line with the first episode of the Great British Bake Off, they asked me to bake a black forrest gateau and we would then compare it with a shop bought cake as part of the interview.
We were also interviewed whilst baking biscuits (the theme of the second GBBO programme), I made Viennese Whirls and Katie did coconut macaroons. We were interviewed by the lovely Winifred Robinson, and the whole experience was fantastic, if a little scary!
Have a listen to the interview to see what the outcome was!
