Thank you to Jim Jams for supplying jars of chocolate hazelnut spread, blackcurrant jam and orange marmalade for this post. The post will look at bridal showers inspired by Bake Off, give you some recipe ideas, and provide a 100% honest review of the products.
A Bake Off Inspired Bridal Shower
Afternoon tea and baking bridal showers are becoming increasingly popular, with thanks as well to the BBC’s beloved Great British Bake Off. If your looking for something different from your bridal shower, and you want a more elegant affair a baking theme can be a fantastic option.
