When I left school, I worked as a pastry chef. I worked in my childhood town of Southwold, I would wake at 4 am and bake cakes, cookies and tarts, five days a week. My afternoons were spent relaxing on the beach, it truly was a lovely time. However, all of these baked goods gave me different feelings, not just depending on taste. So I have used my ex-baker knowledge to try and work out who is what baked morsel of deliciousness.
