December Bakes Round Up

We all know how busy Christmas is so we want to say a big thank you for all the lovely pictures you've been sending in. Your chocolate roulades have looked amazing and we hope you enjoyed baking them as well as eating them. There were lots of techniques involved in the recipe such as making the sponge, carefully rolling it up, making caramel and perfecting hazelnut praline. The addition of the sparkler in the box made it that extra bit special and perfect for a celebration. Here are a few of our favourites from the past month... Screen Shot 2017-01-23 at 11.16.13

Thanks to everyone who shared their photos, please keep sending them in as we love to see how you're getting on. This month we thought you might like a bake which is a little lighter, so we've created an Orange and Rose Carrot Cake recipe. Tag us in your photos on Instagram using @bakesbox or #bakesbox.
