Mum’s essentials guide to baking

As you all might know from the odd recipe I share on here or my Instagram feed I do love a bit of baking I am still working on the appearance of things (Mary Berry I am not) but it’s a lot of fun the kids love to get involved so today I am teaming up with Nisbets to share with you my mum’s essentials guide to baking some delicious little treats.

Tesco’s Eat Happy Project

I love the idea behind this campaign and as soon as I spotted them on twitter I knew I wanted to be involved and get cooking with the kids throughout the summer holidays.
