Channel 4 - Best Baking Blogs

If you follow me on Twitter you will be well aware of how I've been feeling the last few days.  When I'm poorly I have an uncontrollable desire to keep the world informed of every ache and pain.  I think I must enjoy the sympathy.  I've been plodding around the house, wrapped in my pink fluffy dressing gown, clutching a cup of tea and box of tissues generally feeling very sorry for my little plight until I checked my emails.  Right there in my inbox was a note from Channel 4 letting me know that I've been chosen as one of their Best Baking Blogs!  How exciting, little old me?!  Here's what they had to say:

For fun:
Oooooh pretty. This is one good looking blog. If you weren't peckish before visiting Katie Cakes, guaranteed you will be afterwards. Geordie cake-lover Katie has packed her site with simple ideas that will transform your baking, and there's some stunning photography too. The result is full-on food porn. Its Katie's wicked sense of humour and eye for funky new products that's got us inspired. Her cameo cupcakes, glitter jam cookies and shortbread wings for tea cups have turned us green with envy.

Thank you so much to Channel 4 for including me! You brightened up an otherwise gloomy day filled with lemsip and coughs!

Check out the other blogs on the list, they'll be sure to make your tummy tingle with delight:

I got a real sense of deja vu reading the BBC write up on your blog, it got stronger as i read down their list of Best Baking Blogs before it actually occurred to me - it was the BBC's Best Baking Blogs that had led me here a couple of days ago! i had bookmarked intending on coming back later when i had more time to browse lol

I bet you are glad your readership has expanded by at least one, very forgetful person! But i do love a good cupcake ;) x
