Move over mellow mists, ’tis the season to bake!
Don’t you just love autumn? In the words of poet John Keats, it’s the season of mellow mists and fruitfulness.
Yes, it’s time to get cosy. Light the candles, dig out the snug PJs, and turn the clocks back. Winter’s highlights are around the corner – Halloween, Bonfire Night and, of course, Christmas.
Naturally, being a baking company, we look upon each of the above occasions as yet more reasons to bake our favourite yummy treats.
And, it seems, we’re not alone. With more and more Brits taking up baking every year (this year 34% say they bake at least once a week compared to 19% in 2016), statistics show that Autumn is the most popular baking season of all.
It’s not hard to see why. Picture the scene. Outside it’s cold, windy and rainy. But you (and perhaps your loved ones) are ensconced in your warm, cosy kitchen creating wonderful aromas and baking tasty treats and delicious desserts.
Of course, it also helps that the Great British Bake Off Final is looming and a high percentage of its millions of viewers (well done Channel 4!) are compelled to bake for themselves after each episode.
But no matter what’s inspired you – whether it’s the urge to create little Halloween monster cakes for your own little monsters, or the desire for some tasty parkin cake for Bonfire Night, or a need to make an early start on some festive bakes, we wish you happy baking!
