Today I am very flattered and delighted to have been nominated for a Liebster Blog Award by Prince Productions from her Around the World in Eighty Bakes blog! Blogging has only become a very recent hobby of mine and I love the fact that I can write about baking so much and share and read lots of recipes and ideas with other bloggers.  I am always thrilled when I get comments on my blog, so I was very surprised when I opened a comment from one of my favourite bloggers to reveal that they nominated me for an award! Thank you so much to Prince Productions who nominated me for the award!  The Around the World in Eighty Bakes blog is such a brilliant idea and I love reading all of Lauren's different recipes and being able to see how each attempt turns out!

The Liebster Blog Award is given to recognise your favorite up-and-coming bloggers who have fewer than 200 subscribers and that you feel deserve more. It’s a way to connect with more people and learn some new things and generally expand your horizons.
The Rules are:
1.    Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
2.    Reveal your top 5 bloggers and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
3.    Copy and paste the award on your blog.
And in return I am very happy to nominate the following blogs…
Princeproductions - A passionate blogger who is attempting to bake a recipe from every country she has been too.  This blogger has travelled A LOT, she is a great friend and has visited me in Australia twice now, she is a brilliant baker and her recipes are fantastic!  Follow Lauren on her Around the World in Eighty Bakes adventure!

thelittleloaf  - A blogger with a life-long obsession with all things baked. From crusty loaves to crispy pizza and everything in between, well-made bread is a joy she just can’t get enough of. Check out this beautifully written blog with beautiful pictures in each post.

Crustabakes - A baking addict who loves to give away all her baked products to willing (or unwilling) recipients to make room for more baking - my kind of baker.  This blog is filled with delicious recipes and ideas which I read regularly!

FruitSaladMixedVeg - Miss Kimbers is a 23 year old graduate account who on the weekend, bakes sweet things and occasionally cooks savoury. Her blog is filled with lots of inspiration from her time spent living in Germany and its a delight to read.

With Milk & Flour - Mandy uses her blog as a space for her thoughts on food, recipes she likes & her photos. Her most recent post of Iced Finger buns had me wishing I was in England to watch the Great British Bake Off.

Thank you to those of you who read my blog and leave comments - I hope you enjoy following me on my pastry chef adventure.
