Love Baking Magazine

Love Baking Magazine
I was recently sent a copy of Love Baking magazine. Although I am a huge fan of food magazines, I rarely buy baking ones as I find there isn't enough variety in them to hold my attention. What drew my eye to this one was the fact it is quarterly, so although you pay a little more for it (The Christmas issue is £7.99) you get more for your money. This issue also came with a free cupcake stand, matching cake wrappers and nutcracker decorations.

The magazine has a good mix of features and projects with some fantastic guest articles, including recipes by Peggy Porschen and Edd Kimber. There was a particularly nice piece in this issue about making your own edible Christmas presents; including what goodies to make but also what to package them in. Genius!

My picks from this issue are:

  • Peppermint Delight cupcakes topped with candy stripe sweets (above)
  • Berry Red cupcakes made with orange and cranberry sponge (above)
  • Edd Kimber's home made truffles
  • Time for Tea - a guide to some brilliant tea shops (below)
  • Best Buys - the latest baking must haves
  • Iced Treats with stencilled biscuits from Peggy Porschen (above)
  • Edible Christmas Baubles
  • Baker's Bookshelf - we're obviously on the same wavelength... some of my favourites are on here! (below)

I'll definitely be purchasing this magazine in the future, but this time I will allow myself more time to enjoy the fabulous projects! Love Baking is a great place to look for new recipes or just a little bit of inspiration. It's like the best bits of the food magazines written with bakers in mind. What you won't find is ten tonnes of sugar paste on every page. Because the magazine uses guest writers, there is a real variety of content meaning it kept my attention from cover to cover. Maybe a bundt article is calling...?

Buy the current issue 

Disclaimer: Love Baking sent me a complimentary copy of their Christmas magazine. However, I wrote about it because I genuinely enjoyed reading it and plan to use some of the recipes in the future.
