The Great British Bake Off star to meet fans at 12.00pm on Saturday 28th September

Bluewater Waterstones is delighted to welcome Kim-Joy Hewlett to the store. Kim-Joy will be meeting fans and signing copies of her book, ‘Baking With Kim-Joy’, on Saturday 28th September at 12.00pm.

About Kim-Joy

Kim-Joy’s birthday falls on World Baking Day, which she takes as the surest sign there can be that she was born to bake. Born in Belgium to an English father and Malaysian–Chinese mother, she grew up in London, studied in both Bristol and Leeds, and now lives in Leeds with her partner. Kim-Joy wowed both the judges and audiences in ‘The Great British Bake Off’ in 2018, and won a place in the final. ‘Baking With Kim-Joy’ is her first book.

Baking With Kim-Joy

Infuse your baking with a sprinkle of glitter, a rainbow of colours and a menagerie of woodland creatures with the help of this unique baking book from everyone’s favourite Great British Bake Off finalist, Kim-Joy!

If you’ve ever wanted to know how to bring your baking to life, Kim-Joy will show you how in this fun and practical book. As well as basic cake mixes, biscuit doughs, fillings/frostings and decorating techniques, she shares 40 of her wonderfully imaginative designs for iced biscuit creatures, big occasion cakes, character macarons and meringues, ornate breads and showstopping traybakes. Recipes include step-by-step photography and adorable illustrations accompanied by little messages of positivity throughout.

Whether you want to learn how to make a llama cookie, a cat paradise cake, a panda-madeleine or a choux-bun turtle, there’s something here to capture your imagination and spread a little (Kim-)Joy!

This event is free of charge but fans are advised to arrive early to avoid disappointment. Fans must have a copy of ‘Baking With Kim-Joy’ in order to meet Kim-Joy. For further information contact Waterstones Bluewater on 01322 624831

Bookseller Camilla Chetty says “We’re so excited to have the opportunity to host this signing with Kim-Joy. She was a real favourite with the Bake Off fans in the store.
