Let them eat cakes!

Forget the guilt trips as you gorge yourself on what Devon's most famous for - its cream teas. That's what Rachel Anne Walls from London would advise friends and readers of her newly-launched blog Raw Baking at http://rawbaking.blogspot.com/

And the star recommendation on her site for a good gorge is Budleigh Salterton's own Lawn Bakery - "the best bakery in the south west" as she calls it. She gives top marks to its pecan slices and cherry buns. "Truly scrumptious!" gasps Rachel.
This will be popular reading in Devon, as will Rachel's advice to her blog readers:
"I eat and bake and exercise in between so I can eat and bake more." It sounds more fun than any of the diets that I've tried.
