I've been trying to make more of an effort recently to engage with the blogging community. I was already reading quite a lot of blogs and learning and getting so much inspiration from them but as a naturally shy person with a very small and new blog to show I was too scared to really speak to people. So when the lovely Ellie nominated me for the Liebster Award I was pretty excited to get involved. I don't usually do tag posts or anything like this but I did a little research into it and it seems like a fantastic way for bloggers to get to know each other better and strike up conversations.

It’s unpopular opinion time here on Hannah Bakes Things: I don’t like decorated cakes. Okay, before food bloggers everywhere start hunting me down with torches, I don’t mean all decorated cakes, just the ones with silly characters made from more fondant or royal icing than there is cake. I just don't go in for that at all. I’d much rather have a really tasty treat than a bland sponge cake with diabetes inducing amounts of sugar on top in the shape of a cartoon character. But then this week I had to make good on my months old (and very naive) promise of a cake for my 4 year old brothers birthday party and a compromise had to be found.
