Pussy Cat Cake
The English Baker blog has indeed been somewhat quiet for some time now. In fact, completely silent would be more accurate. But, The English Baker has not gone anywhere. I have not been involved in an unfortunate culinary accident with a whisk (not one that I am prepared to discuss here anyhow). Neither have I moved to Bermuda…The English Baker is alive and baking in Brussels, with all the necessary body parts in full working order.
Just a little overworked that’s all….
So, no more Weekly Bakes for the time being. However, do not despair, it is still possible to order all your favourite British breads and pastries baked to order. Just place your order one week in advance, and make an appointment to collect your order from The English Baker in Merode at a time that suits you.
Not only that, The English Baker will also be offering a selection of Seasonal Bakes throughout the year which can be ordered in advance. Sign up to follow The English Baker blog and receive the updates.
Finally, as definitive proof that The English Baker has indeed been slaving over a hot oven and not simply lying on the sofa with a mug of tea and a copy of Hello!, here is a selection of some of the Bespoke Cakes, Breads and Pastries ordered over the last few months. Feel free to leave a comment, by the way!

Here’s a quick post – another Birthday Cake from The English Baker. Lily always has a chocolate hedgehog cake for her birthday (actually it’s the Mikado sticks she really likes). This year, her mother and I thought her hedgehog might like a friend or two.
My favourite part of this cake is the worms!
How to order:
If you would like to order a celebration cake, email firstname.lastname@example.org with your request and any ideas. Normally, you will need to place your order 2 weeks in advance.

No Weekly Bake this week, due to the overwhelming demand for end of school cakes. However, you too can show the teacher your appreciation with a bespoke cake from The English Baker. Prices start from €35.
Here are a few ideas to whet your appetite:
Diamond Jubilee Tea Party Cake
Two Chocolate Strawberry Cake
Hot Air Balloon Cake
How to Order:
Please place your orders by email email@example.com at least 7 days in advance of your required delivery date. Collections can be made from The English Baker in Merode by appointment.
Did you know that The English Baker also makes cakes to order, and with prices starting at €35 it won’t break your party budget either! Here are a couple of examples for your delight and delectation (click on the images below to enlarge).
Please feel free to comment or, better still, why not sign up to follow my blog (see page top right). That way, you will receive regular updates on Weekly Bake menus. As you can see, I’m not an über-blogger, so you won’t be inundated with updates, just Weekly Bakes and the occasional extra bit of news, like this one.
Next Weekly Bake menu coming up tomorrow, Tuesday 5th June…
Woof! Puppy Birthday Cake
