I am no domestic goddess myself but I do occasionally dabble in baking (with varying degrees of success). There is something quite lovely about the smell of freshly baked treats, despite the mess and washing up that this entails. Even in an age where every sort of cake imaginable is easily available in supermarkets, where we work longer hours than ever before and are bombarded with such joys as the 5:2 diet, baking has never been more popular.
