It is fair to say that there has been somewhat of a baking boom recently. It started with the supermodel likes of Lorraine Pascale and Sophie Dahl glamming up the baking business with their pastel coloured Kitchenaids and pretty aprons, and that was even before the whirlwind sensation that is The Great British Bake Off. Since 2010 the programme has taken the nation by storm, and with copycat productions now sweeping the US and countries even further afield, baking is at an all time high.

Gwenyth Paltrow and Blake Lively are just two of the Hollywood elite that have made a show of their baking prowess, with Blake even admitting to trying to sabotage husband Ryan Reynold’s preparation for Green Lantern with her creations. Reynolds admitted his weakness stating ‘[For] most actors, it’s coke and guns. For me, it’s baked goods.’ whilst Blake Lively told People magazine that ‘It was just a way to sabotage Ryan. He was working out as much as he was, and I’m the girl. I’m supposed to look better’. Such is her enthusiasm for the floury hobby that when she read that renowned baking blogger Bakerella was visiting the Big Apple, she contacted her asking if she wanted to join her for a cake making session.

The latest celebs to jump on the baking bandwagon are Taylor Swift and Kelly Osbourne, who last night took to Twitter to tell her fans all about their latest chocolate peppermint cookie venture. The Fashion Police host tweeted ‘#GirlsNight baking with @taylorswift13 you guys have no idea how good Taylor is at cooking! #shocked’ and later ‘Our home made chocolate peppermint cookies are amazing! @clairewinter @taylorswift13 in home made foodie heaven!’, also mentioning her friend Claire Kislinger.

Taylor it seems is just as wholesome as she always appears, and has always been a fan of cooking, of baking she says ‘I’ll get the basic recipe from a cook book and get the idea for it an I’ll just think, “I wonder what would happen if I add this to it?”. Well we think that peppermint chocolate cookies sound mighty fine! Any left Taylor?
