Middleton Guardian - - FRONT PAGE -

A BAKER who turned her hand to writ­ing launched her first chil­dren’s book at her town cen­tre shop.

Natasha Brown, who runs Brown’s Cakes on St Mary’s Gate, wrote Caught Cake Handed, fea­tur­ing lead char­ac­ter Sweet Ge­or­gia Brown, and il­lus­trated it us­ing char­ac­ters she cre­ated out of su­gar paste.

The shop and its sur­round­ing streets, form the back­drop for the story. The book, which also in­cludes a recipe, took a year to write.

It was launched at an event at the shop, at which the Mayor and May­oress Coun Ian and Chris­tine Duck­worth at­tended.

Natasha said: “I was over­whelmed to see the Mayor and May­oress and so many other peo­ple at the book launch. Ev­ery­one had a re­ally good time and were very com­pli­men­tary about my book. I have lots of ideas in my head for fur­ther books about the es­capades of Sweet Ge­or­gia Brown, the church St Mary’s in the Baum will fea­ture in the next one.”

Caught Cake-Handed is the first in the Sweet Ge­or­gia Brown chil­dren’s se­ries. It is aimed at chil­dren age seven to nine and is avail­able from Brown’s Cakes at a price of £5
