Floating Islands

The Great British Bake Off, Week 3 – Desserts.

For the bake along this week I tried the technical challenge of floating islands – fluffy poached meringue in a bowl of creme anglais, topped with spun sugar.

They were lovely but I don't think I'd make them again as they took so long.

In 2015 I made it through to the last 50 in the last audition of The Great British Bake Off. Sadly I wasn't chosen for the programme but I need to carry on my journey as I can't imagine my life without baking.

I'd love to start writing my own recipes. So what better place to do it than starting a blog.
