Step 1

Hi. My name’s Tony (you can see my blog at and I’m a recent convert to baking. I have no idea where this came from but just recently I discovered I love baking, making something sweet and satisfying that in turn makes the family smile.

I’m a beginner, a real newbie, so there’s going to be a few failures along the way. I’ve decided to write this blog because my wife recently bought me Margaret Fulton Baking – an amazing book that has me even more interested. At the moment I’m looking at biscuits and thinking I can manage them, some of the cakes, wow, they are going to take a bit longer.

I’m not sure how often I’ll get to bake, time is short when you run your own business and have four kids to wrangle, but I’m going to try to work my way through Margaret’s book and others that cross my path.

Wish me luck, deep breath and here we go.
