I knew someone this year who was entering a couple of baking categories, and the amount of research and testing she did...
Sadly, she didn't win a prize, but she refined her (now new standard) chocolate cake recipe through her various test runs, and enjoyed the process. Which is what it's all about.
There's something domestic and beautiful about these rows of cakes, something vaguely and charmingly fifties-tea-party about the categories and baking on display.
(It's always better to visit this in the first week of the show than the second, when the effects of time can start to appear on items such as these, with limited life span.... 'nuff said!).
