The team at “Inspiring You” love fun ideas. The creative genius that is Cathy Fahy certainly ticks that box. The phenomenally successful Great British Bake Off has captured the imaginations of millions globally.
We thought it was the perfect time for us to help inspire the next generation of bakers.
Get more active in real life
We are delighted that Galway based baker Cathy shares our vision to help children get more active in real life. What better way to have some fun than by copying some of Cathy ideas.
We will be launching Cathy’s first “Inspiring bake off challenge” later this month. The idea is simple. You can follow Cathy’s recipe and instructions or do your own creation.
Inspire other budding bakers
If you want to inspire other budding bakers why not share images of your cakes by emailing us? You can also simple tag us by using #IYIRL – Inspiring You In Real Life and we can share from there.
Great way to unleash your creative side
Baking is proven to be a great “switch off” and a very rewarding pastime. It is a great way to unleash your creative side. Who knows with Cathy’s guidance you could be the next Paul Hollywood or Mary Berry!
Get busy in the kitchen
Before you get busy in the kitchen why not read the short biography from our latest “Inspiring You” contributor?
Cathy Fahy – From chocolate cake to a Minion hurler!
As a child I loved to eat my mothers chocolate cake. I still use her recipe today. Yum!
I used to draw and paint every day and took pottery classes, which help now with sculpting cakes.
Developed many skills in the arts
After that I worked in Anthony Ryans, dressing windows until 2007. I then decided to stay at home with my expanding family.
My kids loved them
It wasn’t long before I began to experiment with baking and decorating. My early cakes were not good but fun to make and my kids loved them. I used to make cakes for family, friends and neighbours and was soon up and running with “Cakes by Cathy“.
All you need is time
Anyone can learn to decorate a cake. All you need is time and fondant icing. Enjoy experimenting, I know I do!
If you want to see more of my creations you can find me on Facebook @Cakes by Cathy, Instagram @CathyFahy, Twitter @Cathy_Fahy
Great to have you on-board Cathy!
