Great Brownie Bake Off Event 2010

Yesterday was the Great Brownie Bake Off at Look Mum No Hands Cafe in Old Street, hosted by Louise Thomas of the Chocolate Consultancy. It was a very busy and successful event. I do wish I'd taken more photos but I was too busy chatting to people, eating the delicious samples and trying to sell my cakes! 
It was a fun day, I got to meet quite a few lovely people including Edd Kimber, winner of the Great British Bake Off. 
I was very pleased to sell most of my home baked goodies particularly as I spent all of Friday night baking. Thank you so much to my friends who helped out :) Thank you also to everyone who bought my baked goodies. I hope you enjoyed it. 

oreo cupcakes were very popular on the day 

oreo truffles were equally popular.
