Everyone here at Roman at Home towers is feeling a little bit excited this week, because it’s National Baking Week! This officially gives us permission to pretend we are on the Great British Bake-off and get creative in the kitchen.
National Baking Week is a fantastic way to get Britain baking and it is also an opportunity to raise money for charities, such as Baking week’s official charity, Great Ormond Street, via fun bake sales. So dust off those cake tins and get baking…
