The Great British Bake Off celebrations

For many people the trigger to bake is a particular occasion - a family gathering, a traditional celebration, a local festival, or even a change of season. This book is a collection of recipes for every occasion to bake through the year. Divided into cakes, biscuits, breads, pies and desserts, each chapter will follow a loose narrative journey through the year, starting with January and finishing with Christmas.
