Britain needs bakers!

So says a rather fab article in the Times about the growth of the cake industry in the UK.

Britain is in the grip of cake mania. Last week the Women's Institute, spiritual home of the iced occasion fruitcake, reported that interest in its baking courses was up 60 per cent; one online retailer said it was selling a cookie cutter every 15 minutes; and on Monday the nation is to be galvanised into action with the start of National Baking Week.

You can read the rest of the article here, with recipies for cakes by Konditor and Cook and Cake-boy (which I'm visiting next month), and some very yummy looking mint choc chip cupcakes from Crumbs and Doilies!
