I've used my ADHD to my advantage, though. I'm a comedian. It's my passion. It's my chosen creative outlet but one that I've struggled to find the ideal application for. I've been a stand-up, but this seemed to involve too much, well, standing up.

It's been a week since The Great British Bake Off final, and a new study from National Accident Helpline shows that one in four people haves been inspired to bake more. But, baking enthusiasts might not be reaching 'star baker' standard every time, as two thirds of people say they've injured themselves whilst baking or cooking.

This week is National Baking week, so it's only appropriate to challenge those who are making it their life's mission to promote 'guilt free desserts'. Simply by calling a dessert or treat 'guilt free' necessarily implies that all others are 'guilty'. Clearly this is a load of rubbish.

This recipe is for delicious, zesty lemon and poppy seed flavoured cakes, which is one of my Dream Tea recipes. They only take around 30 minutes to make and also happen to be gluten free! I like to decorate mine with a sprinkling of crystallised lemon zest but why not try out some other summer themed decorations like flowers or let the children have fun decorating with sprinkles and sweets!

These little cakes are perfect when you want to ginger yourself up on a chilly day. I love the warmth and zing of ginger so I went a bit overboard, adding it to the cake, the filling and the icing. Oh and on top of the icing.

A marriage is not a wedding day. When you've had your first massive married row you really won't care about whether you had live goldfish on the tables (yep, I used to work at a wedding venue as a waitress, I have seen it all, including bridesmaids and grooms doing unmentionable things behind the bins.

Despite being a bit tough to get your hands on if you don't know exactly where they're sold, they make an excellent part of a cupcake when ground into a fine dust. That lovely aroma and childhood nostalgia pairs perfectly with the unique blend of Earl Grey, but you can use any tea you like.

Garlic and Sun-Dried Tomato Cornbread Muffins With Silky Mashed Potato Frosting and Bacon

Cornbread always reminds me of proper Lumberjack-style places. American BBQ joints and stuff. So does the combination of potato, sour cream and chives. Everything about it just screams 'steakhouse'. You'd be mad not to try these - people go crazy for them!

These cupcakes are something I made for the school fayre. They sold out pretty fast, I'm sure due to their white chocolate dribbleness. The other cakes I made did not sell out fast. It was very stressful watching them sit, lonely and ignored. I won't be making anything other than these for the school fayre, ever again.
