The Great British Bake Off is back! Yes, once again baking queen Mary Berry and her blue-eyed, nan-exciting, bread making side kick Paul Hollywood are once again taking to our television screens to reduce Britain’s best amateur bakers to tears over macaroons, wedding cakes and pastry.
To celebrate the return of The Great British Bake Off, we’ve put together some baking-inspired hen weekend ideas.
Because what hen do couldn’t be made better with cake?
Cupcakes are cute, delicious and can be styled in any way you want them – perfect for a hen weekend icebreaker activity. Book the girls into a hen party cupcake making masterclass and learn how to bake and ice the girly bite-sized treats like professionals.
Treat the hens to a luxury afternoon tea in one of Britain’s fanciest restaurants for the ultimate girly catch up. You’ll get to choose from an impressive selection of beautiful cakes and nibbles, topped off with tea and champagne. It’s the perfect way to recover from a city break shopping spree or top off a weekend in a spa hotel.
Hen Party Cake
Impressive cakes don’t have to be saved for the wedding day. Try mastering this surprisingly easy recipe for a tiered pink ombre celebration cake, here. You can make it in preparation for your hen do gather the girls around to give you a hand.
Make your own gingerbread men – in any shape you want them
You get the idea.
Do you own hen do bake off – you can even order Paul Hollywood as a stripper.
Just kidding. But you can organise a fun Great British Hen Do Bake Off with Signature Bakes, Technical Bakes and Showstopper Bake challenges with prizes for the winners and a huge cake feast afterwards. We also wouldn’t blame you for printing out a life-sized cut out of Paul Hollywood for the bride.
