Why we loved it:

During lockdown Riya discovered she had a talent she didn’t know about before, baking! Baking is such a fun hobby.

Measuring out the ingredients needs careful precision, mixing, kneading, whipping and creaming ingredients together can be really hard work and requires lots of different muscle groups, which means a baking session can be a really great workout! What makes it even better, is that we get to share what we create with others! We love that Riya now has such a generous hobby!

Have you ever baked something for someone else?
