Fred and Andrew are Fortnum's bakers who have been in the business for many years and happily shared their wealth of knowledge with us.
On arrival we were shown into the work area which was alongside the baking shop on the 1st floor. It took a little time to get used to seeing customers looking at what we were doing ( I now know what a monkey feels like in the zoo now )
After proving we then had the job of piping the crosses onto the top.
I've had toasted hot cross buns for the last few days and they are scrumptious... I'm a converted home baked hot cross bun lady convert!..
Fortnums was full of Easter cheer and was a welcome spring feel from a cold wet winters evening.
