Saturday I was up early and ready for my girly day out.
My best friend and my stepmom and I were all off to the Bakewell Baking festival.
We had an amazing time.
Loads of laughter and lots of yummy food to try. It was a fun filled day.
Bakewell is a beautiful village with stunning scenery.
A river full of swans, ducks and fish, that we couldn’t name.
The vintage market was great with amazing stalls, I fell in love with the aprons from The Messy Baker. I so wanted one but made the mistake of thinking I will pick it up later. By the time I had returned the style I wanted was sold out. Still sad over this, waiting for new stock so I can treat myself. These aprons make baking glamorous.
We attended the bakery demonstration by Stacie Stewart, she made a white chocolate gateau. I love Stacie’s down to earth personality though the recipe was beyond my capability.
There was also a a little craft market with some beautiful handmade items.
Off course when visiting Bakewell you have to visit the Old Bakewell bakery where you can purchase the traditional Bakewell pudding. They are also have a restaurant upstairs where I had one of the best meals I have eaten in a long time. Also the service was so efficient and polite.
It was a lovely day spent with lovely company,
Bakewell is a beautiful village and I hope one day to go back and explore more. I heartily recommend visiting this area the scenery is simply beautiful.
